MRI Oncologic Imaging Faculty (BMRC)
The Biomedical MR Center (BMRC) at Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology (MIR) is seeking a full-time faculty member in MR oncologic imaging on the investigator (tenure) track. The faculty candidate is expected to develop innovative MR imaging approaches and collaborate with other investigators at MIR and the Alvin J. Siteman Cancer Center to address oncologic imaging challenges.
MIR supports world-class research imaging facilities, including magnetic resonance, nuclear, molecular and optical imaging resources and cyclotrons for preclinical and translational research. Human MR research facilities include four Siemens Prisma 3T, a Siemens Vida 3T, a Siemens Biograph mMR PET/MR and two PET/CT (Vision and Biograph 40). The MIR small-animal imaging facilities house 9.4 T, 4.7 T and 11.74 T MR scanners, PET/CT and simultaneous PET/MR scanners and a GE SPINlab hyperpolarization unit.
MIR radiologists serve 9 hospitals including the nationally ranked Barnes Jewish and St. Louis Children’s Hospitals. Beyond MIR, the candidate will also have access to the resources of the Siteman Cancer Center, an NCI Comprehensive Cancer Center, a member of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network and an international leader in cancer treatment, research, prevention, education and community outreach.
The BMRC focuses on the improvement of MRI and MRS (magnetic resonance spectroscopy) techniques and data analysis procedures for the study of biological systems. Our research helps provide a more complete understanding of the complex microstructure and governing biophysical and physiologic determinants of healthy and diseased mammalian tissues in the intact functioning state.
Qualifications for the position include:
• PhD, MD/PhD or equivalent degree with an emphasis in the physical sciences and engineering of MR
• Experience and skill in the development and application of MR methods in preclinical or clinical oncologic imaging within a multi-disciplinary environment
• Demonstrated success in obtaining extramural funding
• Demonstrated success mentoring graduate students and postdoctoral fellows
• Outstanding communication, writing and interpersonal skills
