Friday 17th January 2020

University of California Davis

The Department of Radiology at UC Davis invites applications for two postdoctoral research positions. The first position will focus on brain imaging using PET and MRI in the context of Alzheimer’s disease. The second position will focus on total-body musculoskeletal imaging using PET/CT and the uEXPLORER scanner. The successful candidates will have a Ph.D. in the Engineering or Medical Physics fields and a strong 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, PET/CT and MRI acquisition, PET kinetic modeling, 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 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.
