MSc and PhD Position in MRI hardware and method development

In an international, FWF/ANR-funded research project, scientists at the Medical University of Vienna and Université Paris Saclay join forces to develop a powerful hard- and software package for Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the skin and subcutaneous vasculature. Using innovative radiofrequency detector technology and specialized acquisition protocols, ultra-high resolution skin images will be acquired providing detailed anatomical and functional information. In collaboration with expert dermatologists, the added value for the differential diagnosis of arteriolosclerotic leg ulcers will be evaluated.
