Would you like to work as a Director MR Imaging in a growing company devoted to making a real difference in drug development through ground-breaking imaging? How about working in a place that is constantly moving forward, with great science, great people, and an informal atmosphere? If this ticks your boxes, you should continue reading.

At Antaros Medical, we are pioneering imaging methodologies, such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Positron Emission Tomography (PET), to design and deliver clinical studies for decision-making and differentiation in drug development. We currently have around 120 employees working at our offices in Sweden in Gothenburg, Uppsala, and Malmö, as well as a newly established subsidiary in the US, and we are continuously growing and developing.

As a part of our growth journey, we are now looking for a Director MR Imaging – an exciting and diverse role at Antaros Medical. The position could be based in our offices in Gothenburg, Uppsala or Malmö, or placed remotely in Sweden.

As a Director MR Imaging, you will be involved in the design of clinical trials to ensure the best MR methods are applied in our contract research studies and as part of our own R&D. Your main focus will be responsibility for defining the best approach to imaging the study endpoints, setting up harmonized imaging protocols, selecting and qualifying the participating imaging sites, and training the Antaros Corelab on analysis methods.

You will join a group of Imaging Directors with expertise in MR and PET, and you will be working closely with Imaging Specialists, Project Managers, Image Analysts, and Software Developers to deliver innovative imaging solutions to the pharmaceutical industry.

Your main responsibilities will be:

  • Managing and developing imaging aspects of clinical trials
  • Developing analysis methods, training, and certifying Corelab image analysts

Additional responsibilities could include:

  • Communication with new customers, supporting sales and business development
  • Scientific communication (writing publications and presenting research)

An important aspect of your job will be visiting imaging sites to set up imaging protocols. The job encourages interaction with new potential customers as part of the Antaros Medical sales strategy. Method development is a core activity at Antaros Medical, and scientific communication is an important channel to share our results. We, therefore, encourage scientific publishing and presenting at international scientific congresses.

Who are we looking for?
We believe that you have strong organizational skills and drive your work independently. Even so, you very much enjoy working in project teams from start to finish to achieve the goal, with clearly demonstrated collaboration skills. You are outgoing, a natural communicator, and can adapt your approach depending on the situation.

You work as a team player and apply communicative and interactive skills on different levels within the organization, to engage with colleagues, external parties, and customers. As a person, we further believe that you have the flexibility and ability to handle multiple tasks to meet deadlines while delivering high-quality work in a dynamic environment.


  • A Ph.D. degree in the Life Science field or comparable work experience
  • Extensive experience in Magnetic Resonance Imaging
  • Cardiac- and/or kidney disease area experience

Preferred qualifications:

  • Experience in abdominal imaging
  • Good understanding of the physiological/pathology behind imaging endpoints
  • Experience in scientific communication (publishing and presenting)
  • Experience working hands-on at the scanner, including system quality control
  • Experience in the pharmaceutical or medical technology industries
  • Experience in GCP and clinical trials
  • Experience in spectroscopic imaging
