Invicro, a Konica Minolta company www.invicro.com
, is a global, imaging only, contract research organization based in Boston with a staff of approximately 350, is seeking applicants for a research radiologist. Invicro provides imaging services to pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies in support of discovery and preclinical research to phase 3 human clinical trials.
The successful applicant will be based in the Discovery Research Division as a member of a team of approximately 30 imaging scientists, but will also work extensively with the 50 scientists in the Image Analysis group. The research involves imaging of rodents, non human primates, dogs, cats, pigs and sheep, with rodents and non human primates representing the bulk of the work. Imaging modalities include MRI (1.5- 11.4T), CT, microCT, PET and SPECT involving all of the common and many of the less common radioisotopes supported by three cyclotrons and a team of approximately 30 radiochemists, ultrasound, fluorescent and bioluminescent imaging. Additional ex vivo modalities include cryofluorescent tomography, autoradiography and a rapidly growing pathology division. A broad range of organ systems and disease categories are investigated, but neurological and oncological conditions represent the bulk of the research.
The successful applicant will be based in Boston and will provide support for the development and execution of preclinical imaging studies at the various Invicro imaging sites in addition to being the Study Director for selected studies. Work with the Image Analysis group will involve determining a rational approach for automated image analysis, quality assurance of regions of interest developed by analysists and being the primary developer of regions involving complex anatomy. A key role is interpretation of the quantitative data derived from images.
