Job Details

The Magnetic Resonance Research Center (MRRC) within the Department of Diagnostic Radiology & Nuclear Medicine at University of Maryland School of Medicine has an opening for an MRI Staff Scientist with a background in pulse sequence development and/or reconstruction techniques. The MRI scientist will be involved with an NIH-funded project to develop real-time adaptive motion correction for MRI, and applications to clinical research. Over the longer term, the staff may also provide support for other research projects. This is a full-time staff position.


The MRCC houses a research-dedicated whole-body 3 Tesla Siemens Prisma platform, as well as a highly accurate real-time optical system to track head motion. A major upcoming expansion of the facility will add a Siemens MR-PET scanner and animal MRI.  


The ideal candidate would have a Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering, biomedical engineering, Physics or related field with 3-5 years of experience in MR pulse sequence development, and / or experience with modern reconstruction techniques. Pulse sequence development, working knowledge on a Siemens platform, as well as experience with prospective motion correction will be considered a plus.


Interested candidates should send an email to Thomas Ernst, Ph.D. ( with a cover letter highlighting key qualifications and experience, current CV and contact information for three referees.
