The Inverse Problems and Mathematical Imaging group at the Institute of Mathematics and Scientific Computing, University of Graz is offering a
PhD position within the joint FWF/DFG
Next Generation Chemical Exchange Saturation Transfer MRI
30 hours a week; fixed-term employment for the period of 3 years; salary according to FWF rate; position to be filled as soon as possible.
This joint interdisciplinary project together with Graz University of Technology and University Hospital Erlangen aims at combining new advanced methods in MR research and recent mathematical approaches to achieve a major step forward for fast and quantitative imaging of metabolic conditions in CEST MRI (Chemical Exchange Saturation Transfer Magnetic Resonance Imaging). Its mathematical parts cover two research areas: 1) The reduction of scanning time through combination of parallel imaging with subsampling and compressed sensing methods in image reconstruction, and 2) the use of recent optimal control techniques to design radio-frequency (RF) slice selective excitation and refocusing pulses that comply with the technical limitations of whole body systems. They contribute, within the cooperation project, to the development of MRI to a unique morphological, functional and metabolic imaging modality and prepare the way of MRI for a broader future clinical application in metabolic biomarker imaging and precision medicine.
The work within the PhD position will focus on mathematical image processing for medical image reconstruction as well as optimal control for applications in magnetic resonance scanners. Ideal candidates should have the following profile:
