  • experimental preclinical/clinical MRI
  • pulse sequence programming
  • image processing

A six-month trial period will be effective in the beginning of the up to 2-year contract.

The salary will be based on levels 2-4 of the demand level chart for university-level teaching and research staff of Finnish universities. In addition, a salary component based on personal work performance will be paid (maximum of 46.3 % of the job-specific component).

The starting date should preferably be during the summer 2018. Starting at an earlier or later date can be considered. The funding is currently available for a minimum of two years.
