The Institute of Clinical Medicine (Klinmed) is one of three institutes under the Faculty. Klinmed is responsible for the Faculty's educational and research activities at Oslo University Hospital and Akershus University Hospital. With about 800 employees spread over approximately 425 man-labour years, Klinmed is the university's largest institute. Our activities follow the clinical activity at the hospitals and are spread across a number of geographical areas.

Researcher in MRI (PhD required in Physics or Mathematics)

There is available a 3 year position (100%) as researcher in MRI. The primary focus will be imaging of cardiac stiffness using MR elastography in combination with other MR techniques.


University of Oslo and Oslo University Hospital is the largest hospital and medical research institution in Norway. The MR research group at Institute for Experimental Medical Research (IEMF) has a 9.4 T preclinical scanner with a large library of techniques, including T1 mapping, TPM of cardiac function, LGE and DTI. We develop and utilize novel applications for mechanistic studies into cardiac diseases. The MR research group currently has 8 employees, of which 5 are physicists. For a description of the MR facility, see


IEMF is an innovative and dynamic medical research environment, and relies on close interaction between physicists, physiologists, MDs, molecular biologists, engineers and mathematicians. IEMF is responsible for several cutting edge research infrastructures, including the preclinical MR unit and a super-resolution microscopy laboratory. In 2017, we are starting a new research center focusing on cardiac stiffness, which is an important aspect in heart failure.


Job description

Participate in establishing preclinical cardiac MR elastography.

Implement elastography in new and ongoing projects studying cardiac stiffness.

Participate in general joint work by the research unit.
