Role Summary:

As a Post Doc in the Magnetic Resonance team at GE Global Research, you will develop new MRI systems platforms, imaging techniques and/ or algorithms for diagnostic, functional and interventional imaging. You will perform research in an interdisciplinary team to push the envelope of what MRI can do in the clinic and beyond.

Essential Responsibilities:

You will work independently and also within an interdisciplinary team to innovate and push the technical envelope in all aspects of magnetic resonance imaging. You will have opportunities to work both on MR systems hardware as well as algorithms and pulse sequence development. The research and development work will be across 1.5T-3.0T whole body and 3.0T-7.0T head-only MRI platforms.

As a Magnetic Resonance Post Doc, you will:

  • Apply knowledge and experience in MR physics, mathematics, engineering and chemistry to conceptualize and prototype novel MR systems and software solutions that address key clinical needs.

  • Determine the impact of systems hardware performance on image quality and safety, and explore opportunities to develop new applications from enhancements of MR sub-systems. Examples are in gradient coils, RF coils, receiver sub-systems, etc.

  • Identify the source of poor MR image quality across MR platforms and develop the necessary algorithmic or systems hardware solutions for a variety of applications.

  • Work with clinicians to refine emerging technologies for clinical applications.

  • Create intellectual property by generating invention disclosures and filing patents.

  • Maintain external visibility through conference presentations and peer-reviewed journal publications.

Qualifications/Requirements:

  • Ph.D. degree in Physics, Medical Physics, Electrical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Chemistry, or Computer Engineering.

  • Strong fundamentals in MR imaging physics, electromagnetic theory, and MR hardware sub-systems.

  • Proficiency in programming in C, Python or simulation tools (MATLAB, Mathematica, etc.).

  • Demonstrated strong problem solving skills, including the ability to understand and address image quality problems.

  • Legal authorization to work in the U.S. is required. You will need to have valid, on-going authorization to work in the U.S.

  • Must be willing to work out of an office located in Niskayuna, NY.

  • Must be 18 years or older.

  • You must submit your application for employment on the careers page at www.gecareers.com to be considered.

Desired Characteristics:

  • Hands-on experience in MR systems hardware, especially gradients and RF transmit sub-systems.

  • Experience in developing or modifying components of MR sub-systems leading to measurable changes in image quality and new applications.

  • Experience in EM and multi-physics modeling.

  • Experience in pulse sequence programming on a GE MR imaging system (EPIC) or image reconstruction algorithms.

  • Demonstrated skills in computation and simulations.

  • A demonstrated record of research and development as evidenced by peer-reviewed conference proceedings and journal publications.

  • Experience in writing and executing grant proposals.

  • High levels of curiosity and independence.

  • Strong interpersonal skills.

  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills.
