The Department of Radiology at Northwestern University offers two funded one-year research fellowships in computed tomography. Ideal candidates are medical school graduates with research experience in medical imaging. Northwestern Memorial Hospital is located in the heart of Chicago, one block off Michigan Avenue. It is the main teaching hospital for Northwestern University-Feinberg School of Medicine. There are currently twelve CT scanners in the department including: single and dual source 64-slice scanners with automated tube voltage selection, dual source-dual energy 192-slice scanner with two 120 kW generators, 40-slice PET/CT, and a 128-slice adaptive scanner.
Areas of active research include cutting-edge acquisition and processing techniques in cardiac and oncologic imaging, including dual energy. The Radiology Department is filmless with comprehensive Picture Archiving and communication System (PACS). The fellow is expected to write a quarterly progress report, publish papers and present abstracts in national meetings. The goal is to encourage the fellows to pursue a career in academic radiology and to continue with CT research after this fellowship. There is currently ONE opening for a candidate with training in radiology and/or experience in medical imaging research.
Qualified candidates should email or send:
- curriculum vitae
- personal statement
