Development of MRSI/MRI methods for metabolic/molecular imaging of brain cancer and neurological diseases.
Two post-doctoral research fellow positions are available at the Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School to develop novel MRSI and related MRI methods to image metabolic and molecular biomarkers of brain cancer and neurological diseases (ALS, MS).
1) One postdoctoral position focused on software development (pulse sequence and image reconstruction)
2) One postdoctoral position focused on hardware development (multi-channel RF coils).
The background of candidates should include a Ph.D. in physics, electrical engineering, computer science, or related fields. Very good programming skills in Matlab, C/C++, and Linux shell scripting are essential. Experience with neuroimaging analysis software (FSL, Freesurfer, MINC, AFNI, SPM) and spectral fitting (LCModel, jMRUI) are considered a plus. Previous experience with building RF coils is necessary for the hardware position, for which postdocs will have access to the excellent infrastructure and expertise in the RF lab of Dr. Lawrence Wald from Martinos Center at MGH.
MGH is an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer. Salary is commensurate with experience. Start date from 1st June 2017. The positions are available for up to five years, with annual renewal based on satisfactorily progress.
Application: Interested candidates should send their CV, cover letter and 3 letters of recommendation to Dr. Ovidiu C. Andronesi, MD, PhD, Assistant Professor of Radiology, Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Thirteenth Street, Building 149, Suite 2301, Charlestown, MA 02129, USA, (firstname.lastname@example.org).
