Position RequirementsKnowledge of:

– Physics/engineering/analysis of MRI data, especially CEST
– Physics/engineering/analysis PET data
– Cancer biology and an understanding of basic neuroscience/neuroanatomy
– Artificial intelligence, including deep learning
– Ability to write scientific manuscripts as first author

Preferred Skillset:

– MRI and/or PET protocol development, acquisition, optimization
– MRI Pulse sequence programming experience on GE and/or MR Solutions MRI scanners
– Coding in Python and Matlab
– Familiarity with radiomics/radiogenomics analysis

Position Duties

A postdoctoral fellowship position is available in the Departments of Medical Physics and Radiology at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. We are looking for candidates interested in molecular imaging (both MRI and PET).The post-doctoral fellow will further the understanding of advanced multi-modality imaging specific to brain tumor diagnosis and theranostics at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health within the Department of Radiology.

This is a translational research position such that the fellow will perform 75% clinical research and 25% preclinical research.
– The clinical research will be performed on imaging results from human brain tumor patients following imaging on the GE PET/MR scanner (i.e. 18F-FET PET, 18F-FAPI, 18F-Fluciclovine on the PET side, and MR CEST, AI, radiomics on the MRI side).
– The fellow will have access to faculty mentorship in the Dept. of Radiology, Dept. of physics, and Dept. of Engineering.
– The preclinical research will include use of a rat brain tumor model for development of diagnostic PET/MRI agents/sequences or theranostics with high translation potential.
– The fellow will facilitate a PhD candidate who will perform 75% preclinical research and 25% clinical research.
– The PhD Candidate will have a focus on brain tumor cell culture in vitro and animal model development in vivo coupled with in vivo imaging and therapy. The PhD candidate will have overlap with the Dept. of Neurosurgery and Neuro-Oncology.
