MRI physicist or engineer


Magritek Limited has a vacancy for a physicist or engineer with interests in
MRI and NMR, and familiar with electromagnetic design. In particular we
seek someone who will be able to join our team of shielded gradient and shim
coil designers, working on the development of new MRI and NMR spectroscopy
systems. The ideal candidate will have strong mathematical skills, a sound
background in physics or electrical engineering, strong computational skills
(experience with Matlab is essential and with C++ would be an advantage),
and a strong interest in translating design through to practical
implementation, through the use of Solid Works, and Altium, interacting with
our technical staff and involvement in construction and building. Ability to
test the performance prototypes using our NMR and MRI systems will be
required. The person appointed will work closely both with the research
group of Professor Paul T Callaghan at Victoria University of Wellington,
and with the R&D team at Magritek Ltd, Wellington.

Remuneration is at the postdoctoral level, with base salary depending on
