POSTDOCTORAL/RESEARCH SCIENTIST POSITIONS IN
MULTINUCLEAR MUSCULOSKELETAL NMR/MRI
We are seeking highly motivated candidates for an NIH-funded post-doctoral/Asst. Research
scientist positions in multinuclear musculoskeletal MRI research in the Radiology Department
of New York University Langone Medical Center. The candidate will join the exiting and
expanding Musculoskeletal Imaging Group in the Department of Radiology and the Chemistry
Department. The imaging group consists of 11 MSK radiologists. The candidate should have
an excellent background in the application of NMR/MRI to biological models and
understanding of the concepts of NMR physics and experimental NMR techniques.
Experience in musculoskeletal MRI (cartilage/trabecular bone/skeletal muscle) applications is
an advantage. The candidate will also have access to interact with the other researchers in
the center for biomedical imaging and department of Chemistry who have number of ongoing
projects related to arthritis. We are looking for motivated persons with experience in MRI to
assist in this research program. There are opportunities to work closely with a dedicated
musculoskeletal imaging basic scientists as well as a large group of diverse MR physicists,
chemists and RF engineers.
Our research facility includes several thousand square feet of dedicated research space, three
state -of -the-art Siemens 3T Trio MR scanners and a 7T whole body MR with 8 channel
parallel transmit system dedicated to research, as well as seven Siemens scanners used for
clinical research, and a dedicated cartilage laboratory. A small bore system (9.4T) is also
available at Department Chemistry for spectroscopy applications. The orthopedic and
Rheumatology departments are among the largest and busiest in the country. The
musculoskeletal MRI program is currently undergoing rapid expansion.
Applicants must have an advanced degree (Ph.D) in Physical Science, Electrical, Biomedical
Engineering or related field. The candidate must be familiar with computer operating systems
and programming languages, particularly MatLab, C++, etc. Remuneration is competitive and
commensurate with experience and will be based on New York University guidelines, Women
and Minorities are encouraged to apply.
Please forward your C.V. including a list of your publications, and the names/addresses of 3
