The Imaging Sciences Training Program (ISTP), at the National Institutes of Health is sponsored by the Radiology & Imaging Sciences Department (RAD) in the Clinical Center and 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.
