Interventional Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance ImagingPosted by: National Institutes of Health (NIH)
Posted date: 2019-Aug-07
A postdoctoral fellowship under Dr. Robert Lederman in the Laboratory of Cardiovascular Interventional of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, NIH. The laboratory aims to bring to clinic new image-guided catheter-mediated cardiovascular interventions. Integrated development of MR-compatible devices and novel MRI acquisition and reconstruction techniques is supported through a multi-disciplinary team and a unique high-performance low field (0.55 T) MRI system ideally suited intervention.
The role of the successful applicant will vary based on previous experience though current example research directions include development and deployment of real-time function and flow measurements based on fast constrained reconstruction, optimization of new forms of contrast at low field with focus on the cardiovascular domain, and high-resolution visualization of acute myocardial injury.
The applicant will have the opportunity to use an interdisciplinary approach to pursue research interests and advance to an independent research career in the supportive intramural environment of the NIH campus.Qualifications:
Candidates must have obtained a Ph.D. or Sc.D. degree (within the past 5 years) with background in Biomedical Engineering, MRI Physics, MRI pulse sequence design, MR image reconstruction strategies, or related fields. The ideal candidate should have a strong programming skill with accomplishments demonstrated by first-author publications in peer reviewed journals. This position is fully supported by NIH intramural funds and successful candidates will be offered competitive stipend/health insurance commensurate with experience and accomplishments. This position is subject to a background investigation.To Apply:
Applicants should send their curriculum vitae and a brief statement of research interests/career goals, and request 3 letters of reference to be sent via email to: Daniel.Herzkanih.gov.
