A postdoctoral research position is available at the University of Michigan’s Functional MRI Laboratory to work on a NIH funded project. The candidate’s job will conduct research on projects related to quantitative imaging of cerebral blood flow using MRI without the use of contrast agents. The techniques developed in this project will be applied to Parkinson’s disease and other neurodegenerative disorders. The candidate will be expected to publish their findings in peer reviewed journals and international conferences.
The research will primarily involve these areas:
• Modeling MR signal under blood flow conditions
• Development of deep learning methods to solve inverse problems
• Pulse sequence design and development
• Image reconstruction and post-processing
A strong background in signal processing and mathematical modeling is crucial for this project. The ideal candidate will have a Ph.D. degree in a relevant discipline such as Biomedical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, or Physics.
He/she will also have experience in one or more of the following MRI related areas: Arterial Spin Labeling (ASL), Magnetic Resonance Fingerprinting (MRF), Neural Networks or other pattern recognition techniques.
MR pulse programming experience is desired, preferably in EPIC.
This is a one year term-limited position with a possibility of renewal. Postdoctoral Research Fellow appointments are renewable annually for a maximum of three years contingent on satisfactory performance and the availability of funding.
The start date is negotiable, but January 2021 or earlier is preferred.
This position is eligible for benefits.
