Research Assistant, Sonographer Position

Our lab works on developing novel, ultrasound-based techniques for both diagnostic and therapeutic applications. We believe that non-invasive imaging techniques can diagnose cardiovascular diseases more accurately and reliably than existing diagnostic methods. In order to evaluate our technologies, we are conducting multiple clinical trials at New York Presbyterian Hospital in the City of New York. We are seeking a  ( grant funded) skilled cardiac sonographer who will work with our team of researchers to acquire high-quality transthoracic cardiac and vascular images in human and large animal subjects.

The ideal candidate will possess excellent scanning abilities, strong anatomical knowledge, as well as exemplary bedside manner. Organization, time management, and the ability to prioritize the collection of sonographic data for a variety of research projects is required, as well as strong interpersonal skills to recruit and consent research subjects.

This position is on-site Monday-Friday and does not require weekends, holidays, or calls.
