Postdoc Positions at UCSF

Quantitative Breast Imaging and Data Science        The Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging at UCSF is seeking a postdoctoral fellow interested in quantitative breast imaging and data science. The fellow will join the Breast Imaging Research Program and work with a multidisciplinary team of scientists and clinical researchers developing imaging and molecular biomarkers to guide breast cancer treatment. The postdoctoral fellow will participate in the I-SPY2 TRIAL Network, UCSF Breast Oncology Program and UCSF Center for Intelligent Imaging. In this position, the postdoctoral fellow will work directly with Drs. Nola Hylton and Ella Jones on NIH-funded studies focused on the evaluation of dedicated breast positron emission tomography (dbPET) for monitoring breast cancer response to targeted therapies. 

Job Requirements: 

The position requires a PhD degree in biomedical engineering or a related field, with training in nuclear imaging (PET or SPECT). The ideal candidate should have expertise in handling radioactive materials and performing nuclear phantom studies. Knowledge in MR imaging, breast cancer research and clinical trials is highly desirable.
