Positions Available 

New job opportunities become available each year as the Advanced Imaging Center continues to grow. New faculty positions open to fill niches in developing research areas and new technical support staff are needed to support expanding research efforts. A number of positions for graduate research assistants also become available every year.

Our faculty specialize in a wide variety of disciplines: engineering, physics, chemistry, mathematics, and neuroscience.

Our postdoctoral program seeks highly motivated individuals with similar scientific backgrounds. Potential candidates will work with AIRC investigators to develop novel imaging technologies for biological and medical applications. Possible projects include the development of new MRI contrast agents for assessment of tissue physiology, performing experiments to increase understanding of metabolic pathways in humans and in animal models, noninvasive imaging of biophysical and biochemical parameters in living subjects, and establishing biomarkers that are useful for diagnosis and treatment of disease processes.

Staff Positions

Research Scientist, NMR Spectroscopist

The Advanced Imaging Research Center (AIRC) at UT Southwestern Medical Center seeks a Ph.D.-level NMR spectroscopist at the level of Research Scientist. The AIRC operates five 600 MHz NMR systems and two 400 MHz NMR systems for analytical, cell and perfused tissue studies. A high priority is to use analytical NMR methods to complement ongoing studies of hyperpolarized 13C. 

This position requires strong expertise in high-resolution NMR spectroscopy, mathematics, and communications abilities. Skills in acquisition of NMR spectra, conventional processing and quantitation of the spectra, and specialized calculations to assess metabolism are essential.

This scientist will coordinate research in metabolism among several faculty members and operate the instruments for certain projects. He/she will operate a high-resolution NMR spectrometer to perform 1H, 13C and other studies of biological samples. This scientist will oversee day-to-day operations and maintenance.

Other duties are expected including: 1) assisting or training users in new or non-routine 1D/2D NMR experiments; 2) provide first-level trouble shooting and make decisions regarding service; 3) oversee scheduling and user logs. Ideally, the successful candidate will participate in the studies and become deeply involved in research projects. Experience with both Bruker and Varian systems are a plus. 

Interested candidates should send a current CV and cover letter to: stephanie.bates@utsouthwestern.edu.
