PostDoc & PhD pos­i­tions in quant­it­at­ive bone ultra­sound ima­ging

Devel­op­ment, clin­ical val­id­a­tion & trans­la­tion of novel quant­it­at­ive bone ima­ging tech­no­lo­gies towards a med­ical product

Working field:

The Ima­ging, Sim­u­la­tion, & Stim­u­la­tion Lab at Char­ité-Uni­versitätsmed­izin Ber­lin is open­ing PostDoc and PhD pos­i­tion aim­ing at the clin­ical trans­la­tion and val­id­a­tion of a novel and unique ultra­sound tech­no­logy to assess the bone health status non-invas­ively and without ion­iz­ing radi­ation. We tar­get the major mus­cu­lo­skeletal dis­eases of our age­ing soci­ety, i.e., osteo­porosis, but also aim at improv­ing dia­gnostic pos­sib­il­it­ies in pedi­at­ric applic­a­tions.
