Applications are invited for appointment as Post-­doctoral Fellow in Multi-spectral Computed Tomography (CT) in the Department of Diagnostic Radiology (Ref.: 494387), to commence as soon as possible for two years, with the possibility of renewal subject to satisfactory performance and funding availability.

The Department of Diagnostic Radiology consists of a team of enthused scientists and clinicians, and is looking for a prospective team member to work on multi-spectral CT particularly in pre-clinical animal scanner.  The Department has recently acquired a pre-clinical multi-spectral CT scanner (https://www.marsbioimaging.com/mars/), in addition to  the existing micro PET/3T MRI machine.  The team is pursuing important research questions in various areas including, but not limited to, multi-contrast labelling studies, in vivo animal studies, ex-vivo specimens studies, phantom and dosimetric studies. 

Applicants should have a Ph.D. degree in Biomedical/Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Physics, Biomedical Sciences, or a related field.  They should be self­-driven, highly motivated, creative with excellent communication skills in written and spoken English; and be able to work in a dynamic, diverse and forward ­thinking department with an international working environment.  First­hand experience in the use of multi-spectral CT scanner would be extremely favourable, but is not a pre-requisite.  Abilities to work independently and think “outside the box” are key and would be highly desirable.  The appointee will work in close collaboration with radiologists, physicians, biomedical scientists and engineers.  Enquiries about the post can be sent to Dr. Vince Vardhanabhuti at varv@hku.hk.

A highly competitive salary commensurate with qualifications and experience will be offered, in addition to annual leave and medical benefits.

The University only accepts online application for the above post.  Applicants should apply online and upload an up-to-date C.V.  Review of application will start on April 16, 2019 and continue until August 31, 2019, or until the post is filled, whichever is earlier.
