The Spinoza Centre for Neuroimaging in Amsterdam has a vacancy for
MR physicist 7T MRI for clinical and industrial applications

Job description

In addition to research, ultra-high field MRI (7T) offers many opportunities for clinical applications. Despite the availability and various possibilities, MRI scanners with magnetic fields of 7 Tesla have not yet been integrated into clinical practice. You will be responsible for recruiting and supporting new projects, from contacting potential clinical users (physicians) and industrial partners to setting up 7T MRI protocols and supporting ongoing external projects. The emphasis is on clinical (diagnostic) applications of the 7T MRI but also includes 3T MRI and contacts with academic, pharmaceutical and industrial customers. There is room for your own research and working on technical developments but this is not necessary. Both employer and employee will determine the exact tasks, based on the capabilities and interests of the employee, as well as wishes from the centre.
