Postdoctoral Position in Magnetic Resonance Molecular Imaging, New York City

Postdoctoral Position in Magnetic Resonance Molecular Imaging, New York City

The Bone Cell Biology and Imaging Laboratory at the Hospital for Special Surgery/Cornell Medical School ( investigates the molecular mechanisms which control bone biology in normal and damaged bone. In order to provide a direct view of the molecular and cellular events in living, intact bone, we develop and apply cutting-edge musculoskeletal molecular imaging for real-time visualization in pre-clinical models as well as in patients.

We conduct interdisciplinary, team-driven research bringing together students, scientists, physician-scientists and physicians. The lab is engaged in close collaborations with world-class in vivo NMR laboratories in New York City. Our long-range goal is to devise novel imaging protocols for patients with impaired bone integrity due to trauma, genetic alteration, or cancer.

For a highly innovative project, we are seeking a post-doctoral fellow for an at least two-year engagement. The project aims at the development of fluorine magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging of bone cell activity in living subjects. Applicants must have excellent knowledge of magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy, and a strong interest in biology is expected.

We are looking for an individual with the ability to work independently, outstanding communication skills, the desire to work in a multi-disciplinary environment and skills to master challenging research. Our laboratory provides outstanding resources, dedicated mentoring and a highly motivating work place. This position offers a competitive salary, benefits and vacation package. To apply, please send cover letter and full CV to Dr. Philipp Mayer-Kuckuk, E-mail: or
