Join Our Lab
Metabolic Imaging of Cancer using Hyperpolarized Substrates
We seek highly motivated candidates for a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in the Department of Imaging Physics at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas. Fellows will participate in a highly productive multi-disciplinary research program developing novel dynamic imaging and spectroscopic imaging techniques for cancer research involving hyperpolarized substrates. Research will be carried out using a HyperSense dissolution DNP system adjacent to a 7T Biospec preclinical MR scanner, and a SpinLab dissolution DNP system adjacent to a GE 3T MR750 scanner, among a breadth of other imaging instrumentation and research resources. The fellow will have an opportunity to contribute to ongoing basic and translational research projects and will be encouraged to explore and develop new ideas.
The successful candidate should have a Ph.D. in engineering or physics and a strong background in medical imaging and/or MRI. Experience with RF coils and systems, pulse sequence programming, data reduction methods and/or fast imaging is a plus. We invite interested, qualified, and highly motivated candidates to submit a CV along with three references and a brief description of recent research interests and activities to:
