The Department of Radiology at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine seeks a full-time tenure-eligible faculty member at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor. The position will be in an active translational research environment blending clinical studies with developments of advanced body MR imaging research with a focus on oncologic imaging. Research activities will cover advanced imaging of body structure and function, computational modeling, and innovative data analysis concepts such as AI and deep learning. Specific research areas include (1) advancing state-of-the-art non-invasive methods including diffusion and perfusion weighted imaging as well as highly accelerated MRI using sparse sampling and compressed sensing techniques for diagnoses and outcomes prediction in patients with diseases of the liver, pancreas, prostate, intestinal tract, kidney, and breast (2) use of in-vivo MRI and other imaging modalities such as PET-MRI to develop/validate novel clinical diagnostics, (3) developing experimental in-vivo methods for the MRI based analysis of tissue mechanics (e.g. MR elastography in variety of organs).
Qualifications: Candidates should hold a PhD in physics, engineering, chemistry, computer science, medical imaging, or a related field. Experience in body MRI techniques and concepts, pulse sequence development, tissue mechanics, advanced mathematics, bio-imaging post-processing, and successful demonstration of extramural funding are essential. Also required is an exemplary record of peer-reviewed publications.
The start date is negotiable and the position will remain open until filled.
