The University of Washington has post-doctoral fellowships in PET and
PET/CT imaging physics and PET detector development. The positions are
designed to train recent PhD graduates to work as a medical physicist in
academic, industrial, or clinical roles. The successful candidates will
become part of a training and research program centered on PET and
multimodality scanners, pre-clinical animal scanners, and novel scanner
designs and algorithms. The Imaging Research Laboratory
(depts.washington.edu/nucmed/IRL) is active in all aspects of PET and
multimodality imaging, from basic detector module and electronics
designs through optimization of imaging protocols to data analysis,
image display and biomedical usage.

Successful candidates will also be exposed to the major radiologic
imaging modalities and procedures, provided with career development
opportunities, assist in teaching courses on medical imaging, and
participate in government, industrial, and pharmaceutical sponsored
research. The facilities dedicated to medical imaging research include
multiple workstations, a dedicated computer cluster, several new PET/CT
and PET/CT TOF scanners, dedicated small animal scanners, four 64-slice
CT scanners, three MRI scanners, 10 Ultrasound scanners, PACS, and more.

The University of Washington, rated as one of the top 20 universities in
the world by the Economist magazine, is located on a beautiful campus in
Seattle, a thriving and diverse city in the heart of the scenic Puget
Sound region.

Candidates must have a doctoral degree in medical physics, physics,
applied mathematics, engineering, or computer science. Experience in one
or more of the following areas is desirable: programming, Unix,
mathematics through linear algebra, Fourier methods, photon detectors,
analogue/digital electronics, tomographic imaging and reconstruction,
modeling radiation transport, image processing, signal processing, or
observer studies.

To apply, email a letter detailing relevant experience and career
objectives, a curriculum vitae, and references to:

Paul Kinahan, PhD, Department of Radiology, University of Washington
