POSTDOC POSITION: METABOLIC IMAGING USING HYPERPOLARIZED 13C MR

We are looking for a postdoc who will join our project within the Collaborative Research Centre 824 Imaging for Selection, Monitoring and Individualization of Cancer Therapies (http://www.sfb824.de) at the Department of Nuclear Medicine at the Technische Universität München (Germany). The initial employment has a duration of 1 year (extension is possible) starting as soon as possible. The salary is according to TV-L E13.

The Department of Nuclear Medicine at Technische Universität München, Germany, is internationally highly regarded in the field of molecular imaging. Since many years, multimodal imaging (SPECT, PET, MRI, CT) in clinical and preclinical applications is a core focus of our department. Recently a 7 T MRI system for preclinical applications has been installed together with a HyperSense DNP Polarizer for hyperpolarized 13C MR imaging.

We are looking for a postdoc with strong background in preclinical imaging and broad experience in metabolic imaging in animal models to join this preclinical 7T MRI laboratory including the DNP Polarizer. The person is expected to take on the role of the biomedical imaging expert, bringing in strong expertise on MR imaging in preclinical models.

The person will further be responsible for research design, internal and external collaborations for preclinical imaging, and study-execution, working closely together with the team of PhD students and the 7T responsible physicist. In addition, the candidate is expected to develop his/her own research focus within the framework of the department's scientific goals.

Candidates should have a PhD degree in Physics, (Bio-)Chemistry, Biology, or a related field. Proven experience in the field of clinical or preclinical MRI is required. We expect scientific achievements, very good communication skills, and the ability to work in an interdisciplinary team. Women are especially encouraged to apply. Handicapped applicants with equal qualifications will be given preferential treatment.

Applications should include a cover letter, a CV and a list of own publications together with the names of three references and should be sent to: marion.menzel@tum.de
