The Experimental Magnetic Resonance Group (associated to the University Clinic of Radiology at the University Hospital Münster) at the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster, Germany is offering a position limited to 4 years as a
PhD Student (gn*)
in quantitative MRI and relaxation modelling (physics, engineering, imaging)
Part-time with 65%
Salary according to TV-L E13
In the Collaborative Research Centre 1450 “insight - Multiscale imaging of organ-specific inflammation” we are looking for a candidate to work on experimental MRI combined with mass spectrometric imaging to model MR relaxation times. The project includes computer simulations of NMR relaxation, MR measurements of contrast agents and labelled cells, and coregistration with mass spectrometric imaging data. In vivo MRI cell tracking will be performed to investigate the immune response in different experimental models.
We expect from you:
- Applicants are expected to have completed a MSc in physics, engineering, computational science, or biomedical imaging
- Interest in small animal MRI, sequence programming, computer simulations, and data analysis is mandatory
- Experience with experimental MRI, and profound programming skills are a plus. The successful candidate will be devoted to science and integrate in a dynamic interdisciplinary team
We offer you:
- enrolement in a Dr. rer. nat. or Dr. rer. medic. Program
- working in a young and motivated international, interdisciplinary team
- collaboration in the collaborative research center 1450
- 9.4 T MRI system (Biospec with cryoprobe), PET/MR scanner, RF laboratory
- biosafety level microbiology and biochemical lab
- small animal PET and small animal Micro-CT
- Access to instrumentation in other groups
