Post Doctoral Fellow in MRI in Radiology and BME
Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia
Date Posted 03/30/2022
Admin-Other Administrative Positions
Employment Type FullTime
Application Deadline Open until filled

Emory University is a leading research university that fosters excellence and attracts world-class talent to innovate today and prepare leaders for the future. We welcome candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of our academic community.

The Department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences of Emory University is seeking a postdoctoral fellow to work on the development of advanced MRI techniques. The position will center on development of acquisition strategies for cardiovascular or neuro imaging to provide clinical metrics.


The position provides an excellent opportunity to work in a highly collaborative interdisciplinary translational environment with close interactions with MR physicists, radiologists, surgeons, cardiologists, biomedical engineers, mechanical engineers, mathematicians, and computer scientists. Accesses is available to three research-dedicated 3T MRI systems (Siemens PRISMA platform), a 9.4T animal scanner, and a computer-cluster. A 7.0T MRI scanner (Siemens Terra), a PET/CT scanner, and a 11.7T (Bruker) animal scanner will arrive in the new Health Science Research Building which is opening in Fall, 2022. Established collaborations exist with the clinical services at Emory University Hospital, where six MR scanners and a PET/MRI system are located, facilitating translation of technical developments to clinical settings. The Radiology department has close collaborations with the joint Emory/Georgia Tech Biomedical Engineering Department and there are opportunities to teach and advise graduate students in that program. Close collaborations with industry are facilitated by the on-site presence of industry collaborators. Qualifications for the successful candidate include:

• A PhD degree in Engineering, Physics, Computer Science or other related field
• Strong background in signal processing, image processing, or computational modelling
• Demonstrated quantitative analysis with excellent proficiency with Matlab and/or C/C++ programming
• Demonstrated record of independent research, and good organizational and inter-personal skills.
• Previous experience with medical image processing is desirable; experiences with MRI scan operation and MRI pulse sequence programming, or CFD are a plus but not necessary.


The candidate is expected to work on projects involving image acquisition, reconstruction and processing by using and expanding existing tools and development of new methodologies. Potential research projects depend on the mutual interests of the candidate and the PI. The lab has active projects in 4D flow MRI, CFD modeling, DENSE MRI, MRE, and interventional MRI.

Postdoctoral fellows at Emory receive funds for professional development activities (conference attendance and society fees) and can participate in a range of University-sponsored academic development programs.


Please apply online and include your CV and the email address of references. Inquiries can be sent to: John Oshinski, PhD (jnoshin@emory.edu).
