  • Post-Doctoral Position, MRI Laboratory, Hospital for Special Surgery

    The MRI Laboratory at the Hospital for Special Surgery invites applications for Post-Doctoral Fellow to join a team of radiology and biomedical engineer investigators who are pursuing MRI evaluation of total hip arthroplasty (THA).

    This NIH funded project seeks to utilize MRI to evaluate adverse local tissue reactions due to THA and to use MRI to evaluate THA loosening. This study uses both morphologic and quantitative MRI techniques to assess the bony integration THAs and the surrounding tissues noninvasively.

    Candidates should have a PhD in engineering, medical physics, or a related field, with experience with programming and image processing algorithms. The candidate should also possess outstanding writing and communication skills and a strong record of productivity. Experience with clinical MRI scanners would be extremely beneficial but not required.

    HSS is an interdisciplinary work environment, with cooperative efforts of engineers, surgeons and radiologists performing clinical, translational, and basic science research aimed at improving patient care. The MRI laboratory is actively funded by external funding sources, including NIH/NIAMS and private foundations, in performing a variety of interdisciplinary research projects.

    The position is available immediately and initial appointment of the job is for one year, with possibility for renewal up to three years, based on performance. Applicants should submit a covering letter describing current research interests and future research goals, a complete CV, relevant reprints and the names of three potential references to:

    Matthew F. Koff, PhD
    Associate Director, HSS MRI Laboratory
    Associate Scientist, Department of Radiology and Imaging, Hospital for Special Surgery
