PhD Graduate Assistantships in Medical Physics
will soon be available* to qualified candidates.
Research work will be in the area of microscopic
NMR imaging (ÁMRI) of articular cartilage.
Projects in other non-medical applications of
ÁMRI are also available. A working knowledge of
microimaging techniques, biology, biochemistry,
and computation would be an advantage.

Our MRI instrumentation consists of a Bruker AMX
300 NMR system with 7T wide-bore superconducting
magnet, microimaging accessories, and a SGI
workstation running ParaVision software package.
In addition, research times on a Bruker 7T/20cm
system and a GE 3T whole-body system are
available at a nearby institution. Other major
instruments in our lab include an EnduraTec ELF
3200 mechanical testing system, a Leica polarized
light microscope mounted with a CCD camera, a
soon-to-be-installed Fourier-transform infrared
imaging (FTIRI) system, and a number of personal
computers running Macintosh, UNIX, and Windows
operating systems.

This is an exciting opportunity for science and
engineering graduates to pursue PhD research
using multidisciplinary imaging techniques to
study complex biological tissue such as articular
cartilage. The candidate will gain hands-on
experience in NMR physics, medical imaging,
biomechanics, biology, biochemistry, and clinical
