*** The account for Yuan Lab, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has expired. ***

A postdoctoral position is immediately available in the field of molecular imaging at the Biomedical Research Imaging Center (BRIC), University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The Imaging Center houses state-of-the-art imaging equipment and provides extensive imaging service, and directs innovative imaging research programs. The human imaging facility is equipped with 3T and 7T MRI, PET/CT, and PET/MRI to facilitate translational imaging research. The image analysis core provides post-processing and statistical analysis specifically tailored to the needs of individual projects. The small animal imaging facility is equipped with PET/CT, SPECT/CT, optical, ultrasound, and high-resolution CT imaging. It provides comprehensive imaging service to more than 70 investigators from UNC, regional institutions, and industrial scientists. Various imaging projects are currently undertaken using imaging technique to tackle biomedical problems.

Successful candidate is expected to join an ongoing project focusing on molecular imaging in animal models of Alzheimer disease (AD). The project includes studies to evaluate several PET imaging probes targeting neuroinflammation during the onset of AD and following progression. The candidate is also encouraged to participate in other projects including brain tumor imaging with multi-modality imaging, imaging-guided treatment in brain tumor and drug delivery in animal models of Parkinson disease. The Postdoctoral Appointee is expected to publish the results of his or her research during the period of the appointment.

Potential applicants should have a Ph.D. degree in biomedical engineering, medical physics, physiology, neuroscience, or related disciplines. Previous experiences on animal work and imaging procedures are preferred. Research experience on radiochemistry and image processing is a plus.

The initial appointment will be for one year, with opportunities for extension based upon performance and funding. Interested applicants should submit a cover letter and CV to Dr. Hong Yuan at,
