A postdoctoral position in biomedical magnetic resonance is available within the Laboratory of Cardiovascular Science and Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Spectroscopy Section at the National Institute on Aging (NIA) of the National Institutes of Health, located in Baltimore, Maryland.
The overall research program in the group encompasses spectroscopic and imaging studies of brain and cerebral vasculature in the preclinical studies of the animal models of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
Specific research activities within the above areas will depend upon the interests and background of the successful candidate.
Applicants must have Ph.D.-level training and experience in magnetic resonance and cardiovascular measurements. A background in MR imaging or spectroscopy of brain and other tissues is preferred, although applications are also invited from individuals with experience in other areas of biological magnetic resonance. Strong physics, mathematics, and computer skills are an asset. The animal (rats and mice) work/animal procedures experience is also required. The appointment will be as an IRTA Postdoctoral Fellow for US citizens or as a Visiting Fellow for non-citizens. Accordingly, applicants must have fewer than five years of postdoctoral experience.These positions are guaranteed for two years with the possibility of annual renewal up to a maximum of five years, and include family health insurance coverage. This support is not dependent on grant funding.
Applicants should e-mail their CV and contact information for at least three references to: Dr. Olga Fedorova; Hypertension Section; Laboratory of Cardiovascular Science, NIH/NIA, BRC Room 08B117, 251 Bayview Boulevard, Baltimore, MD 21224; Tel. 410-558-8022; e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org The applicants will be also interviewed by Dr. Richard Spencer, Chief of Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Spectroscopy Section, NIA, NIH. The details of the project will be discussed during the interview.
The NIH is dedicated to building a diverse community in its training and employment programs
Hard working post-doctoral neuroscientist that is highly motivated and interested to learn about novel research design and methods while working on collaborative, interdisciplinary projects and writing papers. MRI technique and image-processing know-how is a must. In addition, the basic knowledges in cardiovascular physiology, the good writing skills and the excellent references are required.
