Title: Postdoctoral Research Associate in Diffusion MRIPosted: January 15, 2016
Company/Institution: University of North Carolina
Location: Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA
Department: Radiology

Description:

Position - Several postdoctoral research associate positions in diffusion MRI are available at the Multimodal Imaging in Neuro Disorders (MIND) laboratory of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Our current effort is focused on developing novel cutting-edge diffusion MRI technology for neuroscience applications.

Candidate Requirements - We are seeking highly motivated individuals who have demonstrated academic excellence, including publications in first-class journals and conferences. The candidate should have a Ph.D. (or equivalent) in Computer Science, Applied Mathematics/Statistics, Electrical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, or related fields. Experience in diffusion MRI physics/acquisition, compressed sensing, machine learning, and numerical optimization is highly desirable. Competence in programming beyond MATLAB (good command of Linux, C/C++, CMake, ITK, VTK, etc.) is essential. The candidate should ideally have a strong background in MR data processing, analysis, and reconstruction.

Research Environment - The successful candidate will be part of a diverse group including radiologists, psychologists, physicists, biostatisticians, and computer scientists, and will build upon the group's extensive foundation on medical image analysis. The candidate will also have the opportunity to work with state-of-the-art equipment such as a PET-MR scanner and a 7T whole-body MRI scanner.


Application Instructions: The application should include a cover letter indicating research interest areas, curriculum vitae, and the contact information of three references. For more information or to submit your application, please contact Dr. Pew-Thian Yap (ptyap@med.unc.edu).
