PhD/Master/Bachelor Theses or Internships in Innovative Imaging Technologies (MRI, CT)
Institution: Computer Assisted Clinical Medicine, Heidelberg University, Germany
Start date: flexible
Profile: Candidates working with us should have a strong theoretical and experimental background in physics, computer science, mathematics, biomedical engineering, RF engineering or a related field, as well as knowledge of programming in languages such as C/C++ and MATLAB.
Working Environment: Our group is composed of more than thirty scientists from physics, electrical engineering, medicine and computer science and is working in close co-operation with the local medical departments. We are developing new imaging techniques and translate them with our clinical partners into daily practice. In particular, we are doing basic research on the development of novel MR-techniques for measuring perfusion, diffusion, BOLD + oxygenation, and sodium in the human brain or other organs like lung, liver or heart. Tasks include the implementation of novel MRI techniques at whole body MRI systems (Siemens) at different field strengths (3x 1.5 Tesla; 2x 3.0 Tesla) with transfer to a small bore animal system 9.4 T (Bruker) for mice and rats. Beside this we are developing molecular innovative imaging technologies by fusion of several imaging modalities (CT, MRI, PET) to enable image-guided, high-precision interventions using high-end CT and robotic systems (ZEEGO, Siemens). Ongoing collaborations with other researchers involve the Central Institute of Mental Health (ZI, Mannheim), the German Cancer Research Centre (DKFZ, Heidelberg), and across Europe with multiple opportunities to visit leading international laboratories and to attend taught schools.
