The Translational and Molecular Imaging Institute (TMII) at The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai is seeking a Postdoctoral Fellow to develop novel MRI techniques with a focus in neuroimaging. Position responsibilities include independent research, contributions to publications and grants, and leadership roles within the new Institute. Opportunities for teaching also exist. The candidate should have a PhD in Engineering, Physics, Mathematics or a related field. A significant portion of the work will be development of novel imaging techniques for the human 7T MRI scanner and application to 1) improved neurosurgical planning for brain tumors, 2) elucidating biomarkers for psychiatric illness and 3) improving treatment of epilepsy. Work will consist of pulse sequence programming and development, acquisition of image data on patients and healthy volunteers, and analysis of acquired anatomical, DTI and spectroscopic images.
