Postdoc in the area of magnetic resonance imaging

The Faculty of Physics of ITMO University is a creative synergy of professors, young ambitious researchers and students. Our team began as a small laboratory and has grown into a large scientific and educational center in 10 years of collaborative work. Today, we work in advanced research areas and implement relevant educational programs. We value personal growth, teamwork and academic freedom. Our Faculty is a supportive environment for realizing your most daring and bold ideas.

We offer a researcher position in the project “Advanced quantitative technologies in magnetic resonance imaging for determining the stages of inflammation and fibrosis as disease markers.” The main goal is to develop quantitative MRI methods and provide translational support for their use in clinical practice. One of the objectives of the project is to develop special methods and protocols for quantitative MRI for early detection and monitoring of inflammation and fibrosis in specific organs.


  • leading and organizing work on the development and implementation of modern protocols and methods of quantitative MRI to solve scientific problems in medical diagnostics;
  • close interaction with medical professionals;
  • scientific supervision of Bachelor’s, Master’s, and PhD students;
  • publishing scientific papers;
  • talks at conferences;
  • attracting financing (applying for grants, search for partners) individually and together with colleagues;
  • participation in educational activities;
  • active participation in the events and life of the Faculty, for example, organizing summer schools and events for students and PhD students.


  • a PhD degree in physics and mathematics or in engineering (or a Russian degree: Candidate of Sciences);
  • papers published in international peer-reviewed journals in the area of medical imaging and related fields;
  • experience in creating and optimizing MR protocols;
  • programming skills (Matlab/ Python/C++ and their analogues);
