PhD position summary/title: PhD Student in MRI Methodology

The aim of this position is to strengthen pioneering efforts in MRI of tissues and tissue components with very short-lived resonance signals. Current advances in this area promise to expand the scope of MRI to solid tissues and macromolecules to which it has traditionally been blind, such as myelin or collagen. Gaining noninvasive access to these tissues has the potential to improve the quality of medical treatment for a range of diseases including multiple sclerosis and osteoporosis. The activity addresses the full breadth of this challenge, ranging from physical principles and novel instrumentation to strategies for image encoding and reconstruction strategies as well as applications in basic research and medicine.
