Postdoctoral Research Position in Medical Imaging at UC Davis 

Closing date: 1 March 2020

The Department of Radiology at UC Davis invites applications for postdoctoral research positions. The positions will focus on the development of mathematical methods for analysis of real-time MR images of moving joints, and on total-body musculoskeletal imaging using PET/CT using the EXPLORER scanner. The successful candidates will have a Ph.D. in the Engineering or related fields and a background in both the theoretical aspects and practical implementation of methods for medical imaging, as evidenced by first author journal papers and conference abstracts. Experience in the validation of image processing methods, joint biomechanics, machine and deep learning, and medical imaging inverse problems are highly desirable. Ability to communicate and collaborate with an interdisciplinary group of clinicians and scientists is necessary. Both fresh Ph.D. and more experienced candidates will be considered.

UC Davis offers outstanding research and training opportunities for the successful candidate. The infrastructure consists of a range of preclinical and clinical imaging systems, and access to high performance computing resources. There are established collaborations with the EXPLORER Medical Imaging Center, Center for Molecular and Genomic Imaging, Primate Center, and the Departments of Medicine, Surgery, Pathology, Oncology, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Mechanical Engineering and Biomedical Engineering. UC Davis is ranked 9th among U.S. public universities (U.S. World and News Report). The university is located in Northern California, within easy reach of Lake Tahoe, San Francisco, Napa Valley, Yosemite and the Northern California coast.
