A postdoctoral position in MR engineering with a focus on MRI coil development for brain imaging is available in the Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute at the Columbia University, New York, NY, USA.
Candidates should have an advanced degree (Ph.D. or Sc.D.) in engineering (e.g., biomedical or electrical) or physical science plus a strong record in human MRI. Specific experience with MRI hardware and software are highly desirable.
The position is funded by grants from the National Science Foundation. The Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute at Columbia University has two state-of-the-art Siemens Prisma 3T MRI scanners, as well as an advanced RF coil lab, which are dedicated to human brain researches. For clinical studies, Columbia University Medical Center also have seven 3T and one 1.5T MRI scanners. These resources will facilitate the cutting-edge human brain cognitive and clinical researches.
The Columbia University is an equal opportunity employer and women and applicants of underrepresented minorities are particularly encouraged to apply.
About Columbia University Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute
Columbia University's Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute (the Zuckerman Institute) brings together researchers to explore aspects of mind and brain, through the exchange of ideas and active collaboration. The Zuckerman Institute's home will be the Jerome L. Greene Science Center on Columbia's new Manhattanville campus. Situated in the heart of Manhattan, at full capacity the Zuckerman Institute will house approximately 47 laboratories employing a broad range of interdisciplinary approaches to transform our understanding of the mind and brain. In this highly collaborative environment, labs work together to gain critical insights into human health by exploring how the brain develops, performs, endures and recovers from trauma or disease.
