This successful applicant will help with development of MR imaging methods to study tumor metabolism and response to therapy. The research in the MRRF is focused on the development of high resolution quantitative metabolic imaging techniques. The MRRF has a research dedicated whole-body 3T scanner (GE 750W), whole-body 7T scanner (GE 950), and small animal 7T scanner (GE 901). In addition, the successful applicant will interact with faculty in the Department of Radiation Oncology, which has a dedicated Siemens 3T MRI scanner used for treatment planning as well as an Elekta MRI-Linac that is currently under installation and scheduled to go live clinically in the spring of 2019. The MRRF is a part of the Iowa Institute for Biomedical Imaging and works closely with faculty both from the Colleges of Medicine and Engineering.less than/p>less thanbr>less thanp>Applicants must have a PhD degree in Biomedical Engineering, Neuroscience, Biology, Physics, Medical Physics, or a related discipline.
