Post Doc - MicroMRI Applications in Neurobiology

Post Doctoral Position
MicroMRI Applications in Neurobiology
Biological Imaging Center
California Institute of Technology

Post Doctoral Position for Fall/Winter 2009. This position is aimed at development and application of high resolution MRI in small animal models of neurotransmitter dysfunction and neurodegenerative disease. The Biological Imaging Center and Caltech Brain Imaging Center (http://bioimaging.caltech.edu/) are highly interdisciplinary endeavors with biologists, chemists, physicists, and engineers working on a number of animal models of disease and developmental processes. We are interested in an individual who is firmly grounded in NMR theory and practice with an interest in applications in neurobiology. This work will involve various MR methodologies in rodent model systems; including fMRI, DTI and tract tracing with Mn2+ enhanced MRI, as well as simultaneous µMR/µPET imaging. Small animal MRI facilities at Caltech include a 11.7T/89mm scanner and a 7T/30cm scanner with µPET insert. There are also extensive facilities for all aspects of MRI hardware development and data analysis.
