Postdoctoral Researcher in MRI Diffusion-Weigthed Imaging

Research / Academic


Applications are invited for a postdoctoral researcher in the MR Techniques group at the Radboud University, Donders Institute (PI: David Norris). You will work on a project funded by the Dutch Science Foundation (NWO) on high spatial resolution diffusion-weighted MRI for the detection of small brain infarcts, traumatic brain injury and cholesteatoma. The project is a collaboration between the Donders Institute, Siemens Healthineers, MR Coils BV, and the university medical centres of Antwerp, Nijmegen and Utrecht. The appointee will be mainly responsible for image reconstruction in the project, which will involve state of the art techniques including simultaneous multi-slice acquisition, partial parallel imaging, and advanced phase correction.


You should be in possession of, or have submitted a PhD thesis in MRI at the time of appointment.
Previous experience with reconstructing partial-parallel and or simultaneous multi-slice data sets using Siemens (ICE), Philips or Gadgetron platforms would be a considerable advantage. A good knowledge of MR physics and strong programming skills are essential. We also expect good organisational and communication skills, and the ability to work in a tight-knit team.
