Imaging Research Fellow


The Gordon Center for Medical Imaging in the Department of Radiology at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and Harvard Medical School (HMS) in Boston, Massachusetts, has an opening for qualified individuals at the post-doctoral level to work on research related to design and development of novel catheter-based cardiac imaging systems.

The Department of Radiology at MGH is equipped with the first mobile PET/CT, the first brain PET/MRI, and the first whole-body PET/MRI in the United States. It is also equipped with SPECT/CT, and a substantial large scale shared memory computing facility for computationally intensive research applications.

Applicants must have obtained or anticipate receiving a Ph.D. in next three months in Applied Physics or Biomedical Engineering or other related disciplines. It is required for applicants to have strong hands-on experience in design and development of imaging system in cardiac application, specifically photoacoustic tomography, optic based catheter system. Also, the candidate should have strong analytical, quantitative, programming (Matlab, Lab view), signal/image processing skills as well as strong motivation to learn new research methods. Previous experience in medical imaging system development is preferred.

The successful candidate will have joint appointments at MGH and HMS. If interested, please send your CV, letter describing interests, background, qualifications, and recent publications in imaging field (especially photoacoustic tomography and optics) in one PDF file electronically to the following email address.
