. The Center for Advanced Imaging Research (CAIR) within the Department of Diagnostic Radiology & Nuclear Medicine at University of Maryland School of Medicine has an opening for an MR Research Associate with a background in the development and clinical application of edited MRS, and pulse sequence programming for multiple MRI vendors. The Research Associate will be involved with an NIH-funded projects to develop real-time adaptive motion correction for MRI or MRS, and the applications of edited MRS sequences to clinical research. He or she will also provide support for other research projects. He/she is also expected to participate in the submission of grant applications and manuscript preparations. This is a full-time faculty position at the level of Research Associate.
The CAIR houses research-dedicated Siemens whole-body 3T Prisma and 3T PET-MR scanners, a 9.4T animal scanner, as well as a highly accurate real-time optical system to track head motion. The Center also has a GE SpinLab dynamic nuclear polarizer suitable for preclinical and clinical applications. Research projects are supported by an in-house Siemens engineer.
The ideal candidate would have a Ph.D. degree in Engineering, biomedical engineering, Physics or related field with 3-5 years of experience in MR/MRS pulse sequence development, and / or experience with modern reconstruction techniques. Pulse sequence development, working knowledge on a Siemens platform, as well as experience with prospective motion correction will be considered a plus.
Interested candidates should send an email to Linda Chang , M D ( Linda.Chang@som.umaryland.edu ) with a cover letter highlighting key qualifications and experience, current CV and contact information for three referees.
