PhD Student in MRI Methodology
At the joint Institute for Biomedical Engineering (IBT) of the ETH and University of Zurich one research focus is on the development of imaging techniques based on magnetic resonance (MRI). With more than 50 employees and in close collaboration with industrial partners the IBT develops new MRI methods from basic physics to engineering solutions and medical applications. To expand our MRI method development group (head Prof. Klaas Prüssmann) we are looking for a Physicist or Engineer to be employed as a PhD student.
The aim of this position is to strengthen pioneering efforts in MRI of tissues and tissue components with very short-lived resonance signals. Current advances in this area promise to expand the scope of MRI to solid tissues and macromolecules to which it has traditionally been blind. The activity addresses the full breadth of this challenge, ranging from novel instrumentation to data acquisition and reconstruction strategies as well as emerging applications in basic research and medicine. To achieve these goals we offer excellent infrastructure and equipment as well as a highly competitive salary.
The position requires a master's degree in physics or electrical engineering (or equivalent), a solid mathematical background, affinity to experimental tasks, and sound programming skills. You will work in a self-dependent, proactive and targeted manner. Creativity, commitment, and collaborative spirit are essential ingredients. Good English language skills enable you to operate as part of a young, international team.
We look forward to receiving your online application including a letter of motivation, CV, bachelor and masters certificates and transcripts, publications if available, contact details of referees. Please note that we exclusively accept applications submitted through our online application portal: www.jobs.ethz.ch. Applications via email or postal services will not be considered. The position is available from early 2019 and will be open until filled.
