The Department of Radiology at the University of Calgary, in partnership with the Hotchkiss Brain Institute, invites applications for Post-Doctoral Fellow positions in Image Science. We seek highly motivated individuals interested in MRI based quantitative brain imaging methods and applications. These positions are part of the recent recruitment of Dr. Bruce Pike as the Campus Alberta Innovation Program Chair in Healthy Brain Aging.
Candidates should hold a PhD in MRI Physics, Biomedical Engineering, Neuroscience or an associated program, with a track record of excellence and publications in neuroimaging. The successful candidates will be located in lab space adjacent to other basic and clinical scientists conducting image science research focused upon stroke and other vascular diseases, epilepsy, cancer, human neurodevelopment, adult, child and youth mental health, and traumatic brain injury. The Department of Radiology has 9 basic and clinical image science faculty working in brain, vascular and musculoskeletal imaging. Two 3 T research MR scanners are operational and located at the Seaman Family Centre and the Alberta Children’s Hospital. The Department of Radiology also contains a full array of state-of-the-art clinical medical imaging infrastructure, including three 1.5 T MR scanners, five new multi slice CT scanners, and an intra-operative 3 T MR system. The Faculty of Medicine is also home to excellent core research facilities including experimental imaging (including a 9.4 T, 21-cm bore MR scanner), leading edge microscopy, proteomics and nucleic acid and next-generation sequencing infrastructure.
Calgary, Canada’s fastest growing major city, is vibrant and multicultural with a population of approximately one million. Situated less than one hour from the Rocky Mountains, Banff National Park and Lake Louise, Calgary offers great quality of life and outstanding recreational activities.
Interested candidates should submit, via email: 1) a curriculum vitae, 2) a summary of research interests, 3) a maximum of 3 reprints of their most relevant publications, and 4) the names and e-mail addresses of two individuals willing to provide letters of reference if requested.
