A Postdoctoral Associate position in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of musculoskeletal disorders is available at the University of Minnesota. The Postdoctoral Associate will be responsible for conducting research in the technical development, validation, and clinical translation of quantitative MRI techniques at high (3T) and ultrahigh (≥7T) field strengths to advance basic understanding and clinical management of ischemic and degenerative disorders of the hip, knee, and/or spine that are precursors to osteoarthritis and back pain. MRI techniques of interest include relaxation time mapping (T2, T1Ï, T2Ï, and RAFF), diffusion imaging, perfusion imaging, ultrashort-echo time (UTE) imaging, and strategies for efficient, high-resolution imaging. The work will include imaging of large animal models and human subjects to assess injury and repair to bone and cartilage.
