The UCSF Physics Research Laboratory (PRL) in the Department of Radiology & Biomedical Imaging at the University of California, San Francisco invites candidates for a postdoctoral scholar or career researcher opportunity. There are multiple positions available with a flexible start date. This position will work on physics, instrumentation, or computational research projects that involve biomedical imaging modalities such as PET/CT, PET/MR, SPECT/CT, or x-ray CT.
PRL, the birthplace of the combined dual-modality SPECT/CT technology, focuses on biomedical imaging research specifically with combined dual-modality SPECT/CT, PET/CT, PET/MRI, and advanced x-ray/ CT imaging systems. Our research program is broad from basic instrumentation development to clinical and preclinical imaging applications in oncologic, cardiovascular/cerebrovascular diseases, and neurological disorders. Please visit www.radiology.ucsf.edu/physics to find out our research activities and accomplishments.
Specific job functions for this advertised position include:
Advanced image analytics on PET and SPECT data, implementation of artificial intelligence technologies to image processing, imaging system modeling, and image reconstruction, advanced image analytics on x-ray CT data, kinetic modeling of dynamic imaging data, radiation dosimetry technology development, phantom studies, data collection, processing, and management, instrumentation design, building, and evaluation.
Requirements: Candidates should possess an advanced degree such as PhD. A Master’s degree holder will be also considered for the position as long as relevant work experience is verified. Experience in developing radionuclide or x-ray imaging techniques is not required. The advanced degree should be in physics, medical physics, bioengineering, computer science, electrical, mechanical, or computer engineering, applied mathematics, biophysics, radiological sciences, optical sciences, or any related science/engineering field.
