Hoglund Biomedical Imaging Center
Position Title:
Senior Scientist
Job Family Group:
Professional Staff
Job Description Summary:
The Hoglund Biomedical Imaging Center (HBIC) at the University of Kansas Medical Center (KUMC) has an immediate opening for a Magnetic Resonance Scientist to join a multidisciplinary team that supports a diverse portfolio of research projects using Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Spectroscopy (MRS).
A primary focus of this position is the design and implementation of MR pulse sequences on a newly installed a Bruker Avance Neo 9.4 Tesla small animal MR system. The system is used to investigate a wide range of research topics such as traumatic brain injury, obesity and diet, neurodevelopmental conditions, aging and Alzheimer’s disease, and development of novel therapies. The HBIC provides a rich environment for collaborative, translational imaging research, which includes studies in both animals and humans. Further detail about HBIC may be found at http://www.kumc.edu/school-of-medicine/hoglund-biomedical-imaging-center.html
The successful candidate will serve a key role in the Animal MRI Core, collaborating with investigators on designing, completing, and publishing research studies. Specific responsibilities include designing and implementing pulse programs, developing data acquisition and analysis protocols, and quality assurance of all study aspects from start to finish. The individual must be a dependable and committed team member and should maintain a flexible work schedule, including occasional after hours and weekends as required by experimental schedules and deadlines.
HBIC and KUMC recognize the value of a diverse workforce and are committed to an inclusive research environment. HBIC welcomes all of our partners in research—community members, investigators, research participants, staff, and students—regardless of professional status, age, race, color, national origin, religion, disability, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, or genetic status. Applicants from under-represented backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
Recent doctoral graduates, post-doctoral fellows, and more experienced individuals are eligible. This is a regular staff position which is supported by Center funds.
