NIH Postdoctoral fellowship

posted Mar 14, 2013, 8:04 AM by Bradley Harden
A postdoctoral fellowship is available at the Biomedical and Metabolic Imaging Branch at the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Disease, NIH, Bethesda, MD.

The research focus is the link between metabolism in obesity and other metabolic disorders and the development of cardiovascular disease. Projects include the development of in-vivo cardiovascular pulse sequences and analysis tools for assessment of coronary atherosclerosis and cardiac function and investigation of lipids metabolism and bioenergetics using proton spectroscopy.

Applicants are expected to have a PhD or equivalent doctoral degree in physics, engineering, chemistry, computer science or a related discipline. A background with knowledge and experience with MR physics is strongly preferred. Computer programming 
skills, are essential, preferably including pulse sequence development (particularly on Siemens platform).

Experience with cardiac-specific MRI applications, image analysis, open-source data visualization libraries, and mathematical modeling are desirable. All qualified individuals are encouraged to apply.

The postdoctoral fellow will work with a team of MR physicists, physicians. Facilities include 3.0T whole body scanners (wide bore Siemens and multi-nuclear Philips) with full pulse programming capabilities ready.

Applicants must have fewer than five years of postdoctoral experience.

Qualified individuals should send a cover letter describing their research experience and interest, curriculum vitae, bibliography, and contact information for three references (including the current supervisor) to:

Dr. Ronald Ouwerkerk or 
Dr. Khaled Z. Abd-Elmoniem, 
Biomedical and Metabolic Imaging Branch, 
NIH/NIDDK, 10 Center Drive, Rm 3-5340,Bethesda, MD 20892.
