Radiology Department of New York University Langone Medical Center is seeking highly motivated candidates for an NIH-funded post-doctoral/Asst. Research scientist positions in multinuclear musculoskeletal MRI research.

About the project

The candidate will join the exiting and expanding Musculoskeletal Imaging Group in the Department of Radiology and the Chemistry Department. The imaging group consists of 11 MSK radiologists. The candidate should have an excellent background in the application of NMR/MRI to biological models and understanding of the concepts of NMR physics and experimental NMR techniques. Experience in musculoskeletal MRI (cartilage/trabecular bone/skeletal muscle) applications is an advantage.

The candidate will also have access to interact with the other researchers in the center for biomedical imaging and department of Chemistry who have number of ongoing projects related to arthritis. We are looking for motivated persons with experience in MRI to assist in this research program. There are opportunities to work closely with a dedicated musculoskeletal imaging basic scientists as well as a large group of diverse MR physicists, chemists and RF engineers.


Our research facility includes several thousand square feet of dedicated research space, three state -of -the-art Siemens 3T Trio MR scanners and a 7T whole body MR with 8 channel parallel transmit system dedicated to research, as well as seven Siemens scanners used for clinical research, and a dedicated cartilage laboratory. A small bore system (9.4T) is also available at Department Chemistry for spectroscopy applications. The orthopedic and Rheumatology departments are among the largest and busiest in the country. The musculoskeletal MRI program is currently undergoing rapid expansion.

Candidate requirements

Applicants must have an advanced degree (Ph.D) in Physical Science, Electrical, Biomedical Engineering or related field. The candidate must be familiar with computer operating systems and programming languages, particularly MatLab, C++, etc. Remuneration is competitive and commensurate with experience and will be based on New York University guidelines, Women and Minorities are encouraged to apply.
