The Department of Biomedical Engineering at Columbia is seeking applications for the position of postdoctoral research scientist/scholar in biomedical imaging. This position is part of a program headed by the Provost's office designed to advance the Schools' diversity plans by supporting the recruitment of truly outstanding postdoctoral scholars from historically underrepresented groups (including women in engineering disciplines) to more closely reflect the composition of the national pool of qualified candidates. The purpose of the program is to train and mentor selected postdoctoral scholars for faculty appointments at Columbia University and other universities.
The postdoctoral scientists/scholars will work full-time on their proposed biomedical imaging research programs, and will receive salaries, travel and research support competitive with comparable prestigious postdoctoral programs.
Postdoctoral scientists/scholars will not be required to teach, but if interested, can be supported in doing so. They will hold the rank of postdoctoral research scientist/scholar and be entitled to the benefits associated with Officers of Research.
When possible, the Office of the Provost encourages the postdoctoral scientists/scholars to spend 10-25% of their time on activities intended to support the department's and the School's diversity efforts. The deadline to apply is January 21, 2022.
The postdoctoral scientist/scholar must be U.S. citizen or permanent resident.
The postdoctoral scientist/scholar must have completed their terminal degree not later than five (5) years before the start of the program in Fall 2022.
They must have received their terminal degree from an institution other than Columbia.
Current Columbia University postdoctoral scholars are not eligible for this program.
Minimum Degree: Applicants should have a PhD degree in biomedical engineering, electrical engineering or equivalent (with a degree completion prior to Sept. 2022), and an established research record as evidenced in peer-reviewed publications in medical imaging fields such as MRI, CT, ultrasound, optical and/or PET but also molecular imaging as well as image processing, machine learning, deep learning and similar fields.
To apply please follow the link below. Deadline January 21st 2022.
Columbia University is one of the world's most important centers of research and at the same time a distinctive and distinguished learning environment for undergraduates and graduate students in many scholarly and professional fields. The University recognizes the importance of its location in New York City and seeks to link its research and teaching to the vast resources of a great metropolis. It seeks to attract a diverse and international faculty and student body, to support research and teaching on global issues, and to create academic relationships with many countries and regions. It expects all areas of the university to advance knowledge and learning at the highest level and to convey the products of its efforts to the world.
