Postdoctoral Position in MRI physics

9 Tesla MRT; Bild: Max-Planck-Institut für biologische KybernetikThe High-Field MR Center (MRC) at the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics (Prof. Klaus Scheffler) invites applications for a postdoc position in MRI Physics for methods development and sequence design for advanced CEST and MT MR imaging at 3T and 9.4T. The project dedicated to in vivo Glucocest-MRI is with 8 partners in 7 European countries funded by the European Union and will hence require close collaboration with other partners mainly in the UK (UCL) and Italy.

Applicants for this position must have a Ph.D. and have established an advanced knowledge in MR physics and sequence design. The main focus of the project is in simulation of CEST and MT processes by coupled Bloch equations, as well as design and implementation of resulting novel acquisition sequences. Preference will be given to candidates with an extensive experience in sequence programming on the Siemens IDEA platform (both VB and VD version) as well as accelerated (sparse, parallel etc.) EPI techniques.

The MRC Department is equipped with two whole body Siemens Systems (3 T Prisma and 9.4T), a low-field 2mT experimental MR system with hyperpolarization, and a Bruker animal system operating at 14.1 T, animal facilities, a computational cluster, an RF lab and a biochemical lab for MR contrast agent development. The MRC Department is also affiliated to the Department of Biomedical Magnetic Resonance at the University Hospital Tübingen which allows implementation and application of new MR techniques within a clinical setting at the 3T whole body Siemens research system. The position is available from 01.01.2016 for an initial period of three years. Further extensions will be possible.

The Max Planck Society is an equal opportunity employer: Handicapped individuals are strongly encouraged to apply, and so are women in areas in which they are underrepresented. Application should include a curriculum vitae, list of publications, a summary of past research experience and a statement of research interests and future plans.

All materials should be sent to:
