PhD Position in MRI Physics and Methodology

100%

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), developed in the early 1970ies, offers exceptional soft tissue sensitivity and has powered the astounding progress of medicine in the past fifty years. And it still does. Realizing these potentials by way of research and development is one of the most important challenges in state-of-the-art biomedical engineering. Our research is focused on the fundamentals of magnetic resonance physics, and on the development of dedicated MR methods and on data post-processing methods for applications in the field of biophysical, biochemical, and clinical sciences.

Currently, we are seeking a PhD candidate to join our research team for the development of new rapid multi-parametric magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) sequences with a special focus on tissue relaxometry using rapid steady-state free precession sequence prototyping.

Your position

  • You will conduct state-of-the-art research in MRI physics and methodology
  • You will develop, design and implement new MRI methods with a special focus on rapid multi-parametric tissue relaxometry.
  • You will perform tissue signal analysis and quantification using configuration theory, numerical simulations and image data post-processing methods.

Your profile

  • Master's degree in Physics or related area
  • Experience in Matlab/Python and C++
  • Experience in MRI may be advantageous but is not required
  • Good analytical and conceptual skills
  • Fluency in English

We offer you

  • Interesting and challenging job with high degree of self-responsibility in a professional environment with flexible working hours
  • Dedicated MRI research environment and state-of-the-art MRI system
  • Interdisciplinary working environment
  • The PhD position is fully funded for a maximum of 4 years in line with employment conditions established by the Swiss National Science Foundation.
