Faculty Member Felix W. Wehrli
Position Type NIH Grant
Number of Slots 1
School Perelman School of Medicine
Organization RA-Radiology
Description The Laboratory for Structural, Physiologic and Functional Imaging (LSPFI) in the Department of Radiology at the University of Pennsylvania is seeking an ambitious candidate with a strong interest in magnetic resonance imaging to join our team. LSPFI’s research is aimed at quantitatively characterizing tissue properties and their relationship to physiology and function by means of spatially resolved magnetic resonance in humans.

Activities for this opportunity center on the further development of methods, and their translation to studies in patients by means of quantitative MRI procedures. Specific areas of concentration include design, implementation, and translation to the clinic of methods for the study of oxygen metabolism in the brain and other tissues and studies of the systemic vascular system in response to lifestyle and exposure to environmental toxins. The position will be supported by three NIH R01 grants focused on the effects of e-cigarette exposure on the vascular system, neurometabolic-structural implications of obstructive sleep apnea, and PET/MRI of neurometabolism in dementia.

Penn’s Radiology Department derives its overall strength from a multidisciplinary focus, a close integration between basic science researchers and clinician-investigators, and blending of disease-oriented and basic science and technology programs. Radiology’s Center for Advanced MR Imaging and Spectroscopy (CAMRIS) accommodates multiple whole-body MRI research-dedicated scanners operating at 1.5, 3 and 7T field strengths, designed for experimental and patient related studies.

Stipend level will be at minimum commensurate with university policy (https://almanac.upenn.edu/articles/of-record-fy2024-postdoctoral-stipends). The University of Pennsylvania offers a generous postdoctoral benefits package including health insurance, sick leave, and paid vacation. Please note that foreign nationals appointed to postdoctoral trainee positions must come to the University of Pennsylvania in an exchange visitor (J-1) status.

For consideration, please submit the following to Professor Felix W. Wehrli:

1. curriculum vitae with publication record
2. brief description of research interests and future goals
3. three references with contact information

Qualifications Candidates must have, or be near conferral of, an advanced degree (PhD or dual MD/PhD) in physics, physical chemistry, biomedical engineering, or electrical/electronic engineering and possess a strong research record. Hands-on MRI laboratory experience including pulse-sequence design, image reconstruction, and processing and analysis is preferred, but experience in other fields of imaging may be considered.

Professional level verbal and written English language skills are essential, as are significant interpersonal skills and the ability to assume a leading role in translational patient studies.
