Job description

The position involves the development, implementation and validation of MR acquisition and post-processing methods to obtain imaging biomarkers of chronic diseases and tumors in the liver and pancreas. Quantitative imaging studies will be performed in phantoms, liver and pancreatic tissue, small animals, and patients. The MR methods include perfusion and diffusion imaging, chemical shift encoded imaging, quantitative susceptibility mapping and MR elastography Advanced image analysis and data integration are part of our ongoing translational research program on quantitative MR imaging of liver and abdominal diseases.

The main purpose of our research team is the development of new imaging biomarkers in inflammation, fibrosis and cancer. Our translational research team is composed of medical doctors, researchers and engineers. The imaging research team is one of the 13 research teams of the Center of Research on Inflammation in Paris.
