Scientist (Postdoc) as Medical Scientist focusing on MR-based metabolic imaging (MR-Spectroscopy, CEST)
The position is offered at the Institute of Neuroradiology (Professor Dr. Elke Hattingen, Dr. Ulrich Pilatus, Dr. Katharina Wenger-Alakmeh) and is supported by a funding program of the Else Kröner-Fresenius-Stiftung. Research projects will be conducted primarily at the close-by Brain lmaging Center (BIC), a collaborative research center created by the Goethe-University Frankfurt, the Ernst-Strüngmann Institute and the Max-Planck-Institute. The BIC is a place of interdisciplinary research and intellectual exchange with weekly project presentation meetings and discussions. Project description: The Institute of Neuroradiology specializes in advanced MR imaging methods to evaluate different biological features related to diagnosis and targeted treatment. While focusing on patients with brain tumors, neurological disorders are studied as well. Over the past years, the Institute started to reach out to other oncologic subspecialties, transferring expertise to various tumor entities. One important current project that the successful candidate should participate in, aims at adding 1H/31P-MRS in vivo metabolic profiling as a novel molecular level to the multi-omics assessment of lymphoma (superficial lymph nodes) to identify disease subtypes and predictive biomarkers. We are looking for someone dedicated to establishing project specific MRS (and CEST) methods as well as standardized post-processing and data quantification. There will be full support by other researchers of the Institute of Neuroradiology and BIC, including the methodological research group "MR Core Structure" that promotes the creation of novel data acquisition and analysis techniques. While following up on personal research interests, the Medical Scientist can get involved in several ongoing translational projects taking advantage of the close interdisciplinary cooperation between the Institute of Neuroradiology, Neurology and Neurosurgery. The Comprehensive Cancer Center Consortium UCT Frankfurt-Marburg is internationally well connected and allows easy accessibility to potential study patients.
University degree in medicine or life science or physics and PhD or MD or MD-PhD with outstanding scientific credentials and postdoc experience Publications in high-ranking international scientific journals Expertise in MR (especially MRS) imaging technologies Broad experience in the management of scientific projects High level of motivation and communication skills Excellent basic research closely linked to translational and clinical aspects in close cooperation with clinical scientists
