Recruiter: A/Prof.Ruiliang Bai
Research Interests: Novel functional MRI contrasts and methods; Microstructural MRI; Metabolic imaging; CNS disease diagnosis; Stoke diagnosis
Keywords: Brain imaging; High-field MRI; MRI biophysics
A postdoctoral position to conduct ultra-high-field MRI methods development and application studies is available in ZIINT, under the supervision of both Prof.Anna Roe and A/Prof.Ruiling Bai. ZIINT features an MRI center for both human and animal work (Zhejiang University-Siemens Brain Imaging Research Center) which houses a 3T Prisma and 7T Magnetom,MR-compatible sensory stimulus presentation systems, human MR-compatible EEG system,coil making facility, and animal support equipment.
This project will be focused on developments of MRI sequences and methods on the 7T MRI.The potential directions includes but is not limited to (1) magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) and related imaging techniques;(2) advanced diffusion MRI for microstructure imaging;(3) temperature mapping;(4) high-resolution CBF and CBV imaging.Another direction would be the applications of these newly developed sequences,for example, in the diagnosis of brain disorders by collaborating with hospitals nearby. The candidate will also have the chance to combine other methodologies developed in PI's lab, including optical imaging,neurophysiology, focal brain stimulation methods (electrical, pulsed near infrared stimulation,and optogenetics stimulation).
Candidates should have a strong research background in MRI technique,especially on Siemens platform. Familiarity with Matlab and MRI physics is a plus. Candidate should have ability to work both independently and as part of a team with other neuroscientists, MR physcists, and animal care personnel.
Please send CV,research statement and names of three references to:
Email: firstname.lastname@example.org; Salary and rank will be commensurate with experience.
