Clinicians, physicists, electrical, mechanical and computer engineers that interact in an NIH- and industry-funded center. We use clinical & research MRI scanners to perform minimally invasive interventions in several fields (cardiac electrophysiology, cardio-pulmonary resuscitation, radiation oncology, interventional radiology).
We build hardware and software solutions to navigate devices to selected human-tissue targets, monitor therapy delivery with imaging, and deliver real-time feedback to the performing clinicians, aiming to increase therapy success and reduce complications. Strong collaborations with imaging and medical-device manufacturers enable use of unlocked imaging systems and rapid prototype development, followed by animal and human testing. Several combined hardware/software applications are clinically used at Johns Hopkins and at other academic hospitals, with additional ones at various stages of development and regulatory clearance.
Develop active tracking systems to locate invasive medical devices (catheters, sheathes, needles) during navigation inside the body. Tracking methods for use inside & outside MRI scanners.
Develop MRI probes with novel microelectronic assemblies for high-resolution monitoring of therapy delivery using invasive imaging coil arrays.
Develop MRI sequences for detecting diffuse fibrosis during stages of wound healing, such as after tumor radiation therapy or following cardiac infarction.
We are looking for people with strong analytical skills to develop cutting-edge therapeutic applications.
Mentoring is provided by applied physicists, invasive-cardiology and radiation-therapy JHU faculty.
PhD in Experimental or Applied Physics, Electrical Engineering, Physical Chemistry or related fields.
Competency in MRI pulse-sequence programming, preferably on Siemens platforms.
Experience in constructing analog intermediate frequency (50-150 MHz) electrical circuits.
Basic understanding of heart and genitourinary anatomy.
Interest in clinical translation, including participation in animal & human surgical interventions.
Appointment Length and Duration: 2-year post-doctoral fellowship with possible extension. The first year constitutes a trial period. Earliest start date: Fall 2019. Application: Curriculum Vitae, 3 reference letters, and complete transcripts of undergraduate and graduate academic courses to: Dr. Ehud Schmidt firstname.lastname@example.org.
About Johns Hopkins University
Adopting the concept of a graduate school from Germany's ancient Heidelberg University, Johns Hopkins University is considered the first research university in the United States. Over the course of more than 140 years, 37 Nobel laureates and 1 Fields Medalist have been affiliated with Johns Hopkins. Over the course of several decades, the university has led all U.S. universities in annual research and development expenditures. In fiscal year 2016, Johns Hopkins spent nearly $2.5 billion on research.
The Johns Hopkins Hospital, located in Baltimore, MD, was founded in 1889 and is the teaching hospital for the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Johns Hopkins Hospital is ranked No. 3 on the 2019 US News and World Report Best Hospitals Honor Roll.
