Global Recruitment for Director and Deputy Director of State Key Laboratory of Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy and Imaging (Wuhan，China)
The Innovation Academy for Precision Measurement Science and Technology, CAS (APM) presently opens the director and deputy director positions of the State Key Laboratory of Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy and Imaging (Wuhan, China) for applications. We warmly welcome exceptional talents from all around the world to actively apply for the positions or recommend qualified candidates.
The State Key Laboratory of Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy and Imaging is restructured and optimized from the State Key Laboratory of Magnetic Resonance and Atomic and Molecular Physics, and the CAS Key Laboratory of Magnetic Resonance in Biological Systems. The positioning of the key laboratory is to address demands in interdisciplinary frontiers and life health, establish new principles that break through the conventional limits of magnetic resonance signal sensitivity, spatial and temporal resolution, develop the new magnetic resonance key technologies for in vivo multi-nuclear, ultra-sensitive, ultra-fast and ultra-high-resolution imaging, bring clinical magnetic resonance from "traditional hydrogen imaging" to "multi-element imaging", advance molecular mechanism research from "ex-vivo to in-cell and in-vivo", open up a new direction for in situ molecular science, and lead the new magnetic resonance research. The three main research directions are magnetic resonance theory, ultra-sensitive magnetic resonance key technology, and in-situ molecular science of magnetic resonance.
APM was established by merging the Wuhan Institute of Physics and Mathematics of the CAS (founded in 1958) and the Institute of Geodesy and Geophysics of the CAS (founded in 1957). Through hard working in the field of magnetic resonance for more than 60 years, APM has established and developed a series of innovative theories, methods, technologies, and equipment in magnetic resonance spectroscopy and imaging. A research center around magnetic resonance spectroscopy and imaging has been formed. Currently in the field of magnetic resonance, APM has 2 academicians of the Chinese Academy of Sciences , 2 Creative Research Groups of the National Natural Science Foundation of China, 8 winners of Chinese National Science Foundation for Distinguished Young Scholars, and 1 winner of the National Innovation Competition Award. Besides, APM has 4 national-level platforms including State Key Laboratory of Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy and Imaging and the National Center for Magnetic Resonance in Wuhan, 3 provincial and ministerial-level professional platforms. APM is also the Chairman Institute of the Magnetic Resonance Technology Alliance of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
