Postdoc metabolic imaging at 7T

Postdoc metabolic imaging at 7T

Website Erwin L Hahn Institute for MRI

Within the EU-Project MITI “Non-ionizing Metabolic Imaging for predicting the effect of and guiding Therapeutic Interventions” we aim to broaden and mature metabolic 7-Tesla human MRI (e.g. 1H, 31P, 23NA) towards clinical application and validation. The Biomedical MR research group of prof Tom Scheenen from the Radboud university medical center Nijmegen together with the High Field and Hybrid Imaging group of prof. Harald Quick from the University Hospital Essen are looking for a full or part-time postdoc to develop 31P Metabolic MRI at ultra-high field.
Your tasks:
 programming and optimization of an MRI sequence enabling 31P metabolic imaging on a 7-Tesla
MRI system (Siemens Terra)
 development of an experimental setting/prototype (phantom and MRI sequence) to
demonstrate feasibility and for further optimization of the method
 implementation of the technique on the 7T MRI system
 provide active installation support of the technique to other project sites in the EU-MITI project
Your profile:
 Finished Dissertation (PostDoc) in physics, medical sciences, nature sciences, engineering or
comparable qualification
 Background and experience with magnetic resonance, MRI, MRS, ultrahigh-field MRI, and/or
metabolic MRI
 Programming skills and experience with (Siemens) MR Sequence development
 Very good communication skills and good command of English in both, oral and written form
 Good communication skills and command of German in both, oral and written form is a plus
