Junior Research Fellow position in MR Image Computing /Signal Processing
Applications are invited for JRF posts (1) for the DST funded project on “Signal Processing approaches for time-constrained Magnetic Resonance (MR)”. The project targets the development of novel reconstruction methodologies to enhance the quality of partially acquired MR images in terms of the contrast-noise ratio, accuracy and precision of estimated parameters from raw MR data.
The project involves opportunity to develop novel partial-echo sequences for both anatomic and dynamic imaging, possibly leading to a Ph.D degree subject to significant contribution in the form of publications in scholarly journals. The general theme of this project is fixed, but the theme of work is still flexible and will be adjusted to the candidate’s expertise and interests. The working environment is strongly interdisciplinary, combining techniques and insights from Physics, and Electrical Engineering (Signal Processing).
The candidate for this position should have :
? MS/MTech/ME/MSc(Engg) degree in Biomedical Engineering/Electronics & Communication / Electrical / Computer Science; or top 10 rank holders in BTech with specialization in the above branches
? a strong background in numerical mathematics, scientific computing and/or algorithm development.
? Excellent implementation skills in C, C++ and/or Matlab
? Excellent communication skills (in English).
Prior experience in MR is not mandatory. However, candidates with the above qualifications and prior experience in MR Sequencing / Signal processing will have
additional weightage over the other candidates.
The Fellowship is as per DST norms – Rs. 18000/- pm for the first two years and Rs. 20000/- for the third year. Fellowship amount to B.Tech rank holders will be subject to approval from DST and as per revised DST norms.
