Five-year David Cohen (DC) Biomagnetism Fellowship
The Athinoula A. Mar0nos Center for Biomedical Imaging invites candidates to submit applications for a five-year David Cohen (DC) Biomagnetism Fellowship. The David Cohen Postdoctoral Fellow will develop experimental and analytical tools to measure ultra low-frequency or dc magne0c fields of biological origin and to apply these methods and tools to basic and clinical research studies of neurological, psychiatric, or other disorders. The Athinoula A. Marionos Center for Biomedical Imaging at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) is one of the world’s premier research centers devoted to the development and application of advanced biomedical imaging technologies. The Center is part of the Department of Radiology at Massachusetts General Hospital and is affiliated with both Harvard Medical School (HMS) and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Our mission is to revolu0onize imaging for the advancement of science and medicine. Inspire, educate, and inform. The Marinos Center provides an excep0onally rich mul0disciplinary environment for collabora0ons and mentoring at all levels of training. More information can be found at the Mar0nos Center website hIps://www.mar0nos.org.
The endowed DC Fellowship is intended to provide salary support to a senior postdoctoral fellow for five years as they develop an independent research program and transition to junior faculty. To be eligible, a candidate must hold a Ph.D. and must have prior research experience in bioelectric or biomagnetic fields. The fellowship will meet the NIH salary levels for Postdoctoral Trainees and Fellows, see hIps:// grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/no0ce-files/NOT-OD-21-049.html.
To apply, applicants should send a single PDF to dc_ firstname.lastname@example.org containing:
1. A cover leIer with contact informaion
2. A CV in an NIH biosketch format
3. A four-page proposal including one page of specific aims, one page of background and significance, and two pages describing the research plan and experimental approach. The total length with citations can exceed the four-page limit.
4. Applicants should also arrange to have three leIers of recommenda0on sent directly to dc_ commiIee@nmr.mgh.harvard.edu. The leIers should be from individuals familiar with the applicant’s research and poten0al to transi0on as an independent inves0gator.
