JHU Cardiology Bioengineering Lab: clinicians, physicists, electrical, mechanical and software engineers that interact in an NIH- and industry-funded center. We use clinical & research MRI scanners to perform minimally invasive interventions in several fields (cardiac electrophysiology, cardio-pulmonary resuscitation, radiation oncology, interventional radiology).
We build hardware and software for navigating devices to selected human-tissue targets, monitoring therapy delivery, and delivering real-time feedback to the performing clinicians, aiming to increase therapy success and reduce complications. Strong collaborations with imaging and medical-device manufacturers enable use of unlocked imaging systems and rapid prototype development, followed by animal and human testing. Several combined hardware/software applications are clinically used at Johns Hopkins and at other academic hospitals, with additional ones at various stages of development and regulatory clearance.
Develop active tracking systems to locate invasive medical devices (catheters, sheathes, needles) during navigation inside the body. Tracking methods for use inside & outside MRI scanners.
Develop MRI probes with novel microelectronic assemblies for high-resolution monitoring of therapy delivery using invasive imaging coil arrays.
Develop MRI sequences for detecting diffuse fibrosis during stages of wound healing, such as after tumor radiation therapy or following cardiac infarction.
We are looking for people with strong analytical skills to develop cutting-edge therapeutic applications.
Mentoring is provided by applied physicists, invasive-cardiology and radiation-therapy JHU faculty.
PhD in Experimental or Applied Physics, Electrical Engineering, Physical Chemistry or related fields.
Competency in MRI pulse-sequence programming, preferably on Siemens platforms.
Experience in constructing analog intermediate frequency (50-150 MHz) electrical circuits.
Basic understanding of heart and genitourinary anatomy.
Interest in clinical translation, including participation in animal & human surgical interventions.
Appointment Length and Duration: 2-year post-doctoral fellowship with possible extension. The first year constitutes a trial period. Earliest start date: Fall 2019.
Application: Curriculum Vitae, 3 reference letters, and complete transcripts of undergraduate and graduate academic courses to: Dr. Ehud Schmidt firstname.lastname@example.org.
