Post-doc MR Spectroscopy UCSF
- University of California, San Francisco
- Location: San Francisco , CA
- Job Number: 7077475
- Posting Date: Apr 20, 2021
- Application Deadline: Open Until Filled
A postdoctoral fellowship is currently available in the Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) working with Drs. Wilson, Ohliger, Sriram, and Rosenberg to study the metabolic imaging of infection using hyperpolarized 13C MRI and 2H methods. We have pursued positron emission tomography (PET), hyperpolarized 13C spectroscopy, and 2H methods in this area as well as developed new tools for modulation of bacterial genes:

The ideal candidate will have a strong background in MR spectroscopy, biochemistry, metabolism, and the use of preclinical animal models. A relevant experience would be previous work with bacteria.
The successful applicant will work as part of a collaborative team and have access to a wide range of equipment, including several dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP) polarizers, and several platforms for NMR/ small animal MRS. A dedicated cell and molecular biology laboratory, fully equipped for biological assays as well as a recently installed state of the art LC-MS system are used for complementary investigations.
