Research assistants (R.A.) are an essential component of MGH Metabolic Imaging Core. We seek to work with highly motivated people, while providing a valuable and career-enhancing experience.
Typically, our research assistants are graduates who just earned their B.S. or B.A. and are seeking a 2-year hands-on experience in clinical research before medical school. We’ve also had research assistants with Masters in Science, therefore a specific degree is not a pre-requisite. We currently have one R.A. position and if a position opens, we’ll post it here.
Our research assistants actively participate in our daily operations and also in our scientific production. If you are interested in a research assistant position at MGH Metabolic Imaging Core, please contact Dr. Torriani here.
Research assistant positions are open.

MGH Musculoskeletal and Metabolic Imaging Research Fellowship
SPR/GERME Research Fellowship
If you have a doctoral degree (M.D., Ph.D. or similar) we encourage you to apply for a research fellow position. Your role as a research fellow will be to develop and execute research projects in metabolic and musculoskeletal imaging, under the supervision of our senior researchers. The final goal is publication and/or presentation at major scientific meetings.
This is a competitive 1-year program in which fellows have either first-auhored or co-authored numerous publications in musculoskeletal imaging and metabolism journals. The main requisite is having at least 1 year of training in musculoskeletal imaging or in the field of metabolism (e.g., endocrinology). If you’re interested in applying for a position and want further eligibility details, please contact Dr. Torriani here.
Research fellowship positions are open.
