Job position

This position is one of the 15 Early State Reseacher positions (PhD candidate) of the INSPiRE-MED European Training Network, which focuses on the development of Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRS) and MR Spectroscopic Imaging (MRSI) combined with Positron Emission Tomography (PET), enhanced by machine learning techniques.

The main aim of the PhD project (ESR4) will be the implementation of innovative high spatial resolution MRSI methods in a pre-clinical scanner. The ultimate goal will be the validation of optimal methods for improving imaging biomarker development of brain tumour in longitudinal studies of therapy response in mouse glioblastoma models. The project will involve evaluation of the methodology performance limits, repeatability and reproducibility compared to stock Bruker Biospec MRSI sequences and the assessment of speed-up MRSI methods in a 7-Tesla pre-clinical scanner.

Two 3-months secondments at two partner institutions (Institute of Scientific Instruments, Brno and Katholieke Universiteit (Leuven) and visits to Bruker partner organisation for training will allow for comprehensive expansion of the PhD study Job position requirements (skills/languages/required experience)

The candidate should have a master's degree in physics, biomedical, or electrical/electronic engineering, or a similar degree with an equivalent academic level. A genuine interest in biomedical imaging, programming and research should motivate the application.
