The Imaging Sciences Training Program (ISTP), at the National
Institutes of Health, jointly sponsored by the Radiology &
Imaging Sciences Department (RAD) in the Clinical Center and
the Intramural Research Program of the National Institutes of
Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB), is accepting
applications for one to two-year fellowship positions on a
rolling admission basis. This program provides an excellent
opportunity for individuals who plan a research career in imaging
and biomedical sciences.
This ISTP provides opportunities in clinical, translational and
basic imaging research available in the Radiology and Imaging
Sciences, Nuclear Medicine, Positron Emission Tomography,
Interventional Radiology Laboratory and Molecular and Cellular
Imaging. The program spans research in all aspects of
clinical and basic imaging sciences. Applicants can choose to
work in research areas including: neuroimaging, interventional,
oncological, vascular, metabolic imaging and
computer-aided diagnosis using various imaging techniques.
There are bench-to-bedside research opportunities in
MRI/MRS, MR microscopy, PET radiochemistry, contrast
agent development, cellular and molecular imaging, high
intensity focused ultrasound, targeted drug delivery, and innovative
image processing and visualization algorithms. Qualified
applicants will also be able to have clinical exposure to a
unique research patient population found at the NIH. Fellows
in the ISTP will have access to state-of-the-art imaging and
computer facilities dedicated to research found in the Clinical
Center, In Vivo NMR Research Center, and various basic
science laboratories. Collaboration with imaging scientists on
the NIH campus will be encouraged.
Applicants should hold the MD, MD/PhD or PhD degree and
should have completed training in radiology, nuclear medicine,
biomedical engineering or related area of the imaging sciences.
Applications from individuals currently in US residency
programs may also be considered for research fellowship positions.
Foreign graduates can also be considered for the Fogarty
Visiting Fellows Program. US citizenship or permanent residency
is required for this full-time equivalent appointment.
Salary will vary depending upon qualifications including number
of years of post-residency or graduate training. NIH also
provides a generous benefit package. NIH is dedicated to
building a diverse community in its training and employment
Candidates should submit curriculum vitae, at least three letters
of reference and a preliminary statement concerning their area
of research interest to:
