Dear Colleagues,

We anticipate an opening for a postdoctoral associate beginning in February 2010. This is an opportunity to contribute to the development of a new magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy (MRI/MRS) activity at the University of Georgia. A small animal scanner is being installed near the first of the year to support work of a diverse group of investigators who use mouse and rat models of disease in their research. Their research is complemented by a basic NMR research activity that is developing new ways of monitoring metabolism in systems that range from enzyme networks to living cells to small animals. The basic research activity exploits the substantial high resolution NMR investment already in place at the University of Georgia and will benefit from a hyper-polarization device to be added in early 2010.

We invite applications from individuals with experience in MRI of small animals (including animal handling) or experience in metabolic applications of NMR. The individual must be willing to develop skills they may not currently have in order to work across the boundary of basic and applied MRI/MRS research. Please forward this description to individuals who may be interested in the position and ask them to send a letter describing their interests, along with a CV and three individuals we might contact for reference letters. The University of Georgia is an AA/EEO employer.

Sincerely, J.H. Prestegard
