Postdoctoral and Junior Faculty Opportunities in Image Processing or Radiochemistry

Postdoctoral and Junior Faculty Opportunities in Image Processing or Radiochemistry


The Gordon Center for Medical Imaging in the Department of Radiology at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and Harvard Medical School (HMS) in Boston, MA is soliciting applications at the postdoctoral level for investigators interested in image processing or radiochemistry. Exceptional candidates will be considered for appointment to a faculty position at the rank of Instructor.


Applicants interested in image processing should have earned a Ph.D. in mathematics, physics, computer science, engineering, neuroscience, or a related field. Strong analytical and quantitative skills as well as proficiency in computer programming are essential. Applicants interested in radiochemistry should have obtained a Ph.D. in chemistry, pharmaceutical sciences, biochemistry, or related fields. Skill set should include organic chemistry, cGMP manufacturing techniques, and/or experience with automated radiochemistry synthesis platforms. Faculty candidates should have post-doctoral research experience with an interest in teaching and mentoring junior scientists and ambition for an independent research career. Successful candidates will have joint appointments at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School.


The Department of Radiology offers extensive core research facilities, including a new digital time-of-flight PET/CT scanner, brain and whole body PET/MRI scanners, and small animal PET/SPECT/CT systems. The MGH Gordon PET Core is also fully equipped with a blood/radiometabolite processing laboratory, on-site cyclotron, dedicated research radiochemistry laboratories, and a world class GMP radiopharmacy. Extensive infrastructure is also available for synthetic and analytical chemistry, autoradiography and histology, in vitro binding assays, cell and tissue culture, flow cytometry and microscopy. The Gordon Center maintains a substantial large-scale shared memory computing facility as well as a powerful GPU cluster for parametric image analysis, tomographic reconstruction, Monte Carlo simulation, and other computationally intensive research applications. Successful applicants will be expected to interact collaboratively with a large (140+), growing research group in diverse areas of imaging technology and applications.

If interested, please send your curriculum vitae, a cover letter describing your background and research interests, and three letters of recommendation to:
