TL;DR Post-Doc Position in quantitative MRI at TU Delft, Netherlands. 2 years. 3389 – 4274 EUR monthly

Job description
An exciting post-doctoral opening became available in a translational convergence project between TU Delft and Erasmus MC. The project is led by the Magnetic Resonance Systems lab (Mars lab) at TU Delft and the Department of Radiology at Erasmus MC. We are looking for a talented researcher to join our project on quantitative susceptibility mapping as a post-doctoral fellow for two years. The position is primarily based at TU Delft. The successful candidate will join a young and dynamic group in a prolific, creative and fun environment. The post-doc will work on developing novel imaging biomarkers of the heart with quantitative susceptibility MRI. This project will comprise a strong modeling and sequence development part and will be carried out in close collaboration with translational science and clinical collaborators in Erasmus MC. The successful candidate will also have the opportunity to take mentoring responsibility for students at the bachelor’s and master’s level.

The primary infrastructure for MRI research at the Mars lab in TU Delft is a new Philips Ingenia 3T scanner, located in a local clinical research center. Furthermore, this project will utilize resources at Erasmus MC, providing access to multiple state of the art 1.5T and 3T GE scanners.

Requirements
At Mars lab we value drive, curiosity and passion for research the most. Besides this, the following criteria will be used to evaluate potential candidates

  • ¬†Ph.D. degree in Physics, Biomedical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, or a related field and strong publication record in the area of MRI research
  • Experience with MR pulse sequence development (preferably Philips), or modern MR reconstruction techniques is highly advantageous
  • Strong programming skills, preferably in C++, are essential
