Postdoc in Ultra-high field Magnetic Resonance Imaging

About us:

The Danish Research Centre for Magnetic Resonance (DRCMR) is one of the leading research centers for biomedical MRI in Europe (www.drcmr.dk). Our mission is to triangulate MR physics, basic physiology, and clinical research. Approximately 70 researchers from a diverse range of disciplines are currently pursuing basic and clinically applied MR research with a focus on structural, functional, and metabolic MRI of the human brain and its disorders. The DRCMR is embedded in the Center for Functional and Diagnostic Imaging and Research, a large diagnostic imaging department including all biomedical imaging modalitiesat Copenhagen University Hospital Hvidovre. DRCMR has close interaction with clinicians and radiologists and a state-of-the-art MR-research infrastructure, which includes a pre-clinical 7T MR scanner, six whole-body MR scanners (one 7T, three 3T and two 1.5T scanners), a neuropsychology laboratory, an EEG laboratory, and two laboratories for non-invasive brain stimulation. .

The actively shielded whole-body 7T Philips Achieva system has been operational since early 2016 and it is part of the National Danish 7T MR facility funded by the Danish Agency for Science Technology and Innovation and the John and Birthe Meyer Foundation. The setup supports up to 8-channel transmit and currently up to 32 channel receive. In addition to a well-equipped scanner with a large range of 1H and MN coils, the facility also includes a hardware lab for coil- and hardware development.
