Current Undergraduate and Graduate Opportunities in the Bartha Lab

The Bartha lab is open to applications from outstanding undergraduate students, graduate students, and post-doctoral fellows in areas of research focus.


Students are trained within a multidisciplinary research-intensive laboratory within the Robarts Research Institute Imaging Research Laboratories (IRL), which fosters a culture of innovation to accelerate translational medical research. Embedded is the Western Centre for Functional and Metabolic Mapping (CFMM). The CFMM houses a unique collection of high-field and ultra-high field magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy systems including 9.4T, 7T, and 3T MRI scanners. Trainees are integrated with a dozen senior personnel who are responsible for the design, implementation, data collection, and troubleshooting of all studies undertaken at the CFMM. This collegial and dynamic environment is an epi-centre for cross-disciplinary research collaboration among clinicians, biologists, and physicists who integrate fundamental and systems biology with multiple imaging modalities, and advanced image processing, visualization and quantification techniques. Trainees participate in regular group meetings, and interaction with over 90 graduate students and 30 post-doctoral fellows in an open concept laboratory space. Students will acquire advanced knowledge of the physics involved in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and MRI system sequence design and operation. Student mentorship is a top priority within the Bartha laboratory. Students participate in a weekly lab meeting, as well as seminars held at Robarts and their department.


Undergraduate and Graduate students with training in Medical Biophysics, Physics, Computer Science, and Biomedical Engineering are welcome to apply.


Post-doctoral fellowship applications are also welcome in areas related to Chemical Exchange Saturation Transfer Imaging, Development of Spine Imaging, and in association with opportunities related to BrainScan.
