Title: Postdoctoral Research Associate in Compressed-Sensing Parallel MR ImagingPosted: July 30, 2014
Company/Institution: University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
Location: NC, USA
Department: Radiology

Description:

A postdoctoral research associate position in parallel MR imaging and compressed sensing is 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 accelerated high spatioangular resolution diffusion MR imaging techniques for neuroscience applications.

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, and 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 and reconstruction.

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, a 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).
