The University of Minnesota’s Center for Magnetic Resonance Research (http://www.cmrr.umn.edu/) has an opening for a Researcher to assist in developing methods for MRI imaging for both brain and body (prostate, breast, etc.) applications on Siemens 3T and 7T and 10.5T platforms. The primary responsibility will be programming and testing acquisition pulse sequences and image reconstruction methods. Some scanning of human subjects (volunteers and patients) may also be required. The researcher will be encourage to be involved with, advance and develop any combination of technologies that are used at CMRR, including high performance gradients, high channel count coils, field cameras, MRI in in homogenous fields, exploiting indigenous contrast, accelerated image reconstruction and Deep learning/AI. He/She would support such technologies for dissemination within CMRR, to external collaborators, and users in general.
80% - Develop, modify, and test MR pulse sequences using the Siemens development environment
10% - Collaborate with CMRR researchers to develop new strategies and tactics for MR imaging
5% - Scan phantoms and human subjects to test, optimize and integrate novel methods
5% - Involved with advancing and developing new technologies such as: gradients, RF coils, field cameras and image reconstruction.
