The successful candidate will benefit from state-of-the-art equipment and work specifically on spectroscopic imaging of the brain using hyperpolarization with the goal of visualizing neurodegeneration.

Your Profile

  • A completed PhD with experience in preclinical magnetic resonance
  • Preferably training in hyperpolarized in vivo magnetic resonance
  • Independent thinking, structured work organization and a good team spirit are expected

Additional Information

The position is initially for 2 years with the possibility of extension. Payment and benefits are based on the TVöD guidelines.

The Max Planck Society is committed to increasing the number of individuals with disabilities in its workforce and therefore encourages applications from such qualified individuals.
