Harvard/MGH Nuclear Medicine - Fellowship Training Program

Applications are invited for a full-time position at the Athinoula A. Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging, Massachusetts General Hospital, through “the Harvard/MGH Nuclear Medicine Training Program for Basic and Applied Research.”

This program will provide in-depth cross-training in basic and applied nuclear medicine research for MD, MD/PhD, and PhD research fellows.

We are a multidisciplinary team focused on basic and applied nuclear medicine research.  Trainees will choose both a primary research advisor and a co-advisor covering a basic science discipline and a clinical outlook.  Together with their co-advisors, trainees will identify a high-impact area in nuclear medicine within which to concentrate their research experience. These will include simultaneous human PET-MR imaging research; preclinical imaging (SPECT-CT, PET-CT, or PET-MR) in animal models of human disease; and radiotracer/multimodal imaging agent chemistry methodology. The fellow will then define an independent research area that capitalizes on the resources at the institution and the expertise of both advisors.

Program Objectives

The proposed program will achieve three major training objectives. 1) We will train trainees in radiotracer methodology, design, synthesis, and imaging applications directly related to understanding human physiology and disease. 2) We will train trainees to apply nuclear medicine in clinical, disease-specific applications and drug development. 3) We will develop a career-mentoring plan that will ensure the talented trainees from our program become the future leaders in nuclear medicine.


Experience in at least one the following areas is required:

- Chemistry / Chemical Biology
- Epigenetics
- Molecular Imaging
- Neuroscience


Candidates must have an MD, PhD or MD/PhD in chemistry, biology, physics, nuclear medicine, biomedical engineering or a related discipline and a strong background or demonstrated interest in medical imaging. 


Send a 1-page research summary statement and curriculum vitae to Krista Fariel, at fariel@nmr.mgh.harvard.edu. Two letters of reference will be required upon request.
