Postdoctoral Fellowship

Sodium MRI and Proton MRS in Traumatic Brain Injury

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral fellowship position at the Center for Biomedical Imaging (CBI) at New York University (NYU) School of Medicine. The successful candidate will join a multidisciplinary team of researchers and physicians on an NIH-funded project on the study of traumatic brain injury (TBI) with sodium (23Na) MRI and proton MR spectroscopy (1H MRS). The overarching goal of the research is to provide new markers for neurodegeneration which can predict patients' long-term clinical outcome.

The position is open to candidates with a Ph.D. in an MR-related field within biomedical engineering, physics or neuroscience. Candidates with a background in metabolic, microstructural and functional imaging are encouraged to apply. Motivated individuals will have the opportunity to engage in independent research within the context of the study. Self-driven work attitude is a must. Experience with the Siemens Syngo platform (IDEA/ICE) is preferred, but not required. A record of peer-reviewed journal publications is a plus.

The CBI is located in midtown Manhattan. It hosts the Center for Advanced Imaging Innovation and Research (CAI2R), and is embedded within the NYU Department of Radiology. This arrangement brings together a vast amount of human and technological resources in basic MR science and clinical applications. Available on-site are 6 Siemens MRI scanners, including two 1.5 T and two 3 T scanners, a 7 T scanner, and a 3 T PET-MR scanner, a cyclotron, a wet lab, and a dedicated RF laboratory. Work will take place in collaboration with colleagues from Emergency Medicine and Rusk Rehabilitation Center.

Salary is commensurate with experience and includes a comprehensive benefits package. Subsidized housing within walking distance to the CBI will be offered depending on availability. A two-year time commitment is expected, with a possible extension of another one or two years.

The application consists of a CV, a statement of research interests in the context of prior work, and the contact information of 2-3 references. These materials should be emailed to the Principal Investigators of this project, Dr. Ivan Kirov and Dr. Guillaume Madelin, at the email addresses below.
