Post-Doctoral Fellowship Opportunity in Translational Microstructure Imaging

The Section on Quantitative Imaging and Tissue Sciences, NICHD, is soliciting applications from post-doctoral level scientists interested in developing, implementing, and translating quantitative MRI methods from bench-to-bedside. Examples include “microstructure imaging” applications, such as AxCaliber MRI, Q-space MRI, multiple-pulsed-field gradient (mPFG) MRI, and multi-dimensional relaxation spectrum MRI. Knowledge of MRI physics and previous pulse sequence programming experience with Siemens, GE, and/or Philips clinical MRI scanners are highly desirable.

The Post-doctoral Fellow appointment would be made under an Intramural Research Training Award (IRTA) for US citizens or permanent residents, or under a Visiting Fellow (VF) award for non-US citizens. Applicants must possess a Ph.D. or D.Sc. in physics, electrical engineering, or a related field, and have completed less than five years of post-doctoral training. Interested applicants should first contact Dr. Peter Basser (pjbasser@helix.nih.gov). Successful applicants will eventually be required to submit: (1) a curriculum vitae (CV), (2) a bibliography, (3) a cover letter with a brief description of his/her research experience and interests, and (4) a list of at least three references that includes their mailing address, telephone number and e-mail address. Additional information and useful links about post-doctoral fellowship training positions at the NIH can be found at https://www.training.nih.gov/resources/faqs/postdoc_irp.

Post-Doctoral Fellowship Opportunity in Brain Network Analysis

The Section on Quantitative Imaging and Tissue Sciences, NICHD, is soliciting applications from post-doctoral level scientists interested in developing and implementing novel computer science-based network and graph analysis methods, and applying these to multi-modal in vivo human imaging data. This research is being supported by an NIH BRAIN Initiative R24 grant.

The Post-doctoral Fellow appointment would be made under an Intramural Research Training Award (IRTA) for US citizens or permanent residents, or under a Visiting Fellow (VF) award for non-US citizens. Applicants must possess a Ph.D. or D.Sc. in computer sciences, applied mathematics, electrical engineering, or a related field, and have completed less than five years of post-doctoral training. Interested applicants should first contact Dr. Peter Basser (pjbasser@helix.nih.gov). Successful applicants will eventually be required to submit: (1) a curriculum vitae (CV), (2) a bibliography, (3) a cover letter with a brief description of his/her research experience and interests, and (4) a list of at least three references that includes their mailing address, telephone number and e-mail address.

Post-Doctoral Fellowship Opportunity in Tissue Extracellular Matrix (ECM) Imaging

The Section on Quantitative Imaging and Tissue Sciences, NICHD, is soliciting applications from post-doctoral level scientists interested in developing and implementing novel MRI methods for studying water and ion transport mechanisms in extracellular matrix (ECM) tissues, tissue culture systems, or “engineered” tissues. Experience and interest in MRI microscopy and microimaging, q-space MRI, relaxation spectrum MRI, NMR profiling, and/or other porous media MRI methods is desirable. Familiarity with pulse sequence programming on Bruker MRI scanners is also desirable.

The Post-doctoral Fellow appointment would be under an Intramural Research Training Award (IRTA) for US citizens or permanent residents, or under a Visiting Fellow (VF) award for non-US citizens. Applicants must possess a Ph.D. or D.Sc. in physics, engineering, or a related field, and have completed less than five years of post-doctoral training. Interested applicants should first contact Dr. Peter Basser (pjbasser@helix.nih.gov). Successful applicants will eventually be required to submit: (1) a curriculum vitae (CV), (2) a bibliography, (3) a cover letter with a brief description of his/her research experience and interests, and (4) a list of at least three references that includes their mailing address, telephone number and e-mail address. Please send this information electronically to Dr. Basser.

Post-Doctoral Fellowship Opportunity in Microimaging and Microstructure Imaging Research

The Section on Quantitative Imaging and Tissue Sciences, NICHD, is soliciting applications from post-doctoral level scientists interested in developing, implementing, and quantitative MRI for eventual migration to pre-clinical and clinical “microstructure imaging” applications, such as AxCaliber MRI, Q-space MRI, multiple-pulsed-field gradient (mPFG) MRI, and multi-dimensional relaxation spectrum MRI. Knowledge of porous media physics, mathematical and computational modeling, and NMR and MRI physics is required. Previous pulse sequence programming experience with Bruker 7T and 14T scanners is highly desirable.

The Post-doctoral Fellow appointment would be made under an Intramural Research Training Award (IRTA) for US citizens or permanent residents, or under a Visiting Fellow (VF) award for non-US citizens. Applicants must possess a Ph.D. or D.Sc. in physics, electrical engineering, or a related field, and have completed less than five years of post-doctoral training. Interested applicants should first contact Dr. Peter Basser (pjbasser@helix.nih.gov).
