PhD Project at the Interface of Physics, Engineering & Medicine

Acquisition and Post-Processing Methods for Metabolic Magnetic Resonance Imaging

The Magnetic Resonance Methodology Group of the University Bern and Inselspital Bern (www.amsm.dkf.unibe.ch/), now located at the new Translational Imaging Center of sitem-insel (sitem-insel.ch/en/), in collaboration with the Uni-versity Clinics for Diabetology, Endocrinology, Clinical Nutrition and Metabolism (www.udem.insel.ch/, www.dcberne.com/en/), is looking for a Ph.D. student to work on devising, implementing and using novel imaging and spectroscopy methods to investigate human metabolism in health and disease. This project will make use of forefront MR technology (clinical 7 T MR system) and methodology (e.g. deuterium metabolic imaging) to explore human energy metabolism in vivo.

Aufgaben
The proposed Ph.D. project will involve:
  • Development of novel acquisition schemes for metabolic imaging (deuteri-um, carbon and proton methods)
  • Programming (C, C++) and experimental work on a standard clinical (3 T) and an ultrahigh field (7 T) MR system
  • Extensions of MR post-processing methods (java, matlab)
  • Applied studies in the areas of diabetes, endocrinology and other diseases or to understand metabolic processes in physical exercise.
Anforderungen
The PhD project is to start in early in 2020.
PhD student applicants should hold a masters degree in physics, biomedical engineering, or a related field. Candidates with strong programming skills (C++, Java, matlab) and/or previous experience in magnetic resonance are preferred. Excellent knowledge of English is required. Regulations of our Grad-uate School can be found at http://www.gcb.unibe.ch/
A general interest in multidisciplinary work is a must.
