Now Seeking Candidates for Postdoctoral Fellowships in Computational Science, Biomedical Imaging, and other Positions

University of Pennsylvania Health System

Philadelphia, PA, United States

Multiple positions available

We have multiple openings for Postdoctoral Fellows and other positions in the Advanced Cardiovascular Imaging group at the University of Pennsylvania. The group takes a teamwork-oriented focus to accomplish next generation biomedical imaging and bioinformatics research. The candidates will develop new computational and engineering technologies for discovery of biomedical imaging traits in humans. We also seek additional candidates to develop new metabolic imaging technologies. We employ a highly translational and bench-to-bedside approach, rapidly iterating on discoveries, and patient-oriented research.
