The focus area is the development and application of novel MR and image processing methodologies to better understand and characterize the musculoskeletal system in the areas of high resolution, quantitative imaging. Developing techniques for PET-MR imaging will also be part of the job requirements. These techniques will be implemented directly in human in vivo studies, in pathologies and diseases such as osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, spine imaging, lower back pain, and inflammation. The incumbent will contribute directly to ongoing projects in terms of pulse sequence development, cross- calibration, data acquisition, and analysis, as well as develop related areas of interest. The incumbent will develop applications in human imaging specifically musculoskeletal research and be responsible for getting IRB and other regulatory approvals, data analysis and lead the study getting inter-disciplinary collaborators and clinicians input into the studies.
The position requires a PhD in Bioengineering or a related field, post-doctoral experience, expertise in EPIC programming, evaluating the performance of MR sequences, MR data acquisition and processing.
