A postdoctoral research position is available within the Center for Regenerative Medicine at Nationwide Children’s Hospital working with Dr. Mitchel Stacy. Research in the lab is focused on the development and application of non-invasive medical imaging techniques for evaluation and characterization of cardiovascular diseases and regenerative medicine scaffolds. Of particular interest is imaging of quantitative perfusion, vascular inflammation, and vascular remodeling.
The lab utilizes multiple imaging modalities, which include SPECT/CT, conventional time-of-flight PET/CT and digital PET/CT, CT angiography, ultrasound, and MRI. Experimental work and training will be focused on pre-clinical and clinical imaging of vascular diseases, tissue-engineered scaffolds, and diabetes, with particular emphasis on medical image processing methodology. Imaging research will be completed through collaborative efforts between The Research Institute at Nationwide Children’s Hospital and The Ohio State University College of Medicine.
Candidates should be highly motivated with an interest in pre-clinical and/or clinical imaging. Also required are excellent written and verbal communication skills, as the position will involve participation in manuscript and grant writing.
Interested individuals should send a letter of interest and recent copy of CV to Dr. Stacy at email@example.com
•Ph.D. or M.D. in Physiology, Biomedical Engineering/Sciences, or related field •Desire to pursue a career in biomedical imaging and/or vascular surgery research •Appropriate knowledge base and/or skills related to the topic area •Good writing and verbal communication skills
