Are you ready to be a part of breakthrough research?

The Han Laboratory focuses on novel magnetic resonance hardware and methodologies for in vivo applications. To learn more, please visit: Han Research Lab | Cedars-Sinai (cedars-sinai.org)

Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, affiliated with UCLA, is a world-leading hospital and is currently ranked #7 nationally on the Best Hospitals Honor Roll. The Cedars-Sinai Biomedical Imaging Research Institute (BIRI) is one of leading MRI research groups with a central focus on developing and applying novel imaging technologies to today’s most pressing translational research and clinical questions. BIRI has been constantly growing into a team of 70 onsite personnel including research and clinician scientists, technical and support staff, postdoctoral scientists and doctoral students. BIRI has two full-time on-site MRI scientists from Siemens Healthcare.

BIRI Research Core Facility houses a state-of-the-art 3T whole-body scanner (Siemens MAGNETOM Vida), a whole-body PET/MR system (Siemens Biograph mMR) and Bruker BioSpin 9.4T small animal scanner, all dedicated to research. Other equipment includes Scanco vivaCT40 micro-CT, IVIS® Spectrum Optical Imaging System, CRi Maestro™ Fluorescence, Precision X-Ray X-RAD SmART, Notting Hill Devices Preclinical Scanner (4Dx). Our research and clinician scientists collaborate closely with physicians, especially imaging physicians, to synergistically bring together technical and clinical expertise in areas such as cardiology, neurology, and oncology imaging.

MR hardware is the basis underpinning data acquisition and image processing. Historically, MRI has been advanced by major hardware improvements such as multichannel RF detection and transmission and increased magnetic field strengths. In recent a decade, B0 shimming using localized coils becomes a rising trend in the society and combined B0 shim and RF receive arrays have drawn considerable attention. Our team has made pioneering contributions in this new field and is currently supported by multiple NIH grants. Our major effort is directed toward creating new capabilities of the existing MRI system, through developing clinically viable tools to advance the sensitivity, resolution, or signal to noise ratio of imaging.

In this role, the Postdoctoral Scientist will be expected to work independently under the direction of the Principal Investigator (P.I.) and in close cooperation, as well as consultation, with other research staff.
