postdoctoral position Marseille

A 2-year postdoctoral position is available in the Centre de Résonance Magnétique Biologique et Médicale (CRMBM, UMR CNRS 6612, dir. Pr PJ. Cozzone) in Marseille, France.
The main goal of the project is to improve the non invasive characterization of the spinal cord (SC) traumatic pathologies through the assessment of structural, vascular and metabolic MR informations.
The candidate will develop and/or validate MR techniques for mouse SC investigations at very high field (11.75T) and participate to the transfer to human SC study (1.5T and 3T). He/she will be integrated in a multidisciplinary experienced team of MRI method scientists, engineers and biologists.
The candidate should possess a Ph.D. in an appropriate discipline, such as physics, biomedical engineering, or biology. Competence in MR physics, MR engineering, physiology or biology is advantageous. Experience with post-processing environments like IDL or Matlab will be necessary. Skills in pulse sequence programming would be greatly appreciated.

The position is supported by a grant from the ANR (Agence Nationale de la Recherche) and is funded from July 1st 2009 for a period of two years.
