Postdoc Positions in Medical Image Analysis & Machine Learning

despina.kontos – Posted on July 25, 2017 at 3:52 pm –


The
Computational Breast Imaging Group (CBIG) of the Radiology
Department
at the University of Pennsylvania has open postdoctoral
positions. CBIG is a group within the Center for Biomedical Image Computing
and Analytics
(CBICA) with a mission to act as a translational
catalyst between computational imaging science and breast cancer research.
Work in our group focuses on developing innovative methodology for
multimodality image analysis and also on incorporating such methods
into clinically relevant applications. Recent research interests
also including expanding our current work more broadly in oncologic imaging,
including lung and molecular imaging applications
.

Postdoctoral Position Qualifications:
We are seeking
highly motivated individuals with excellent academic track-record, including
first-author publications in peer-reviewed journals. Successful candidates
should have, or be in the process of completing, a PhD (or equivalent) in
Biomedical, Electrical or Computer Engineering, Computer and Information
Science, or related field. Ideal applicants should have a background
on biomedical image analysis, computer vision, pattern recognition and/or
machine learning. Proficiency in quantitative analytical methods and computer
programming (e.g., Python, C/C++, ITK) is essential. Experience with
medical image analysis (e.g., MRI, CT, X-ray, Ultrasound) or statistical
methods and software packages (e.g., R/SPSS) is preferable. Applicants should
demonstrate excellent oral and written communication skills, and the ability to
work effectively independently and as part of a multidisciplinary team.

Successful
applicants will join a vibrant collaborative research environment, will work
closely with clinical investigators, and will gain a first-hand experience
of our breast imaging program. Collaborators include faculty in our Radiology
department, the Abramson Cancer Center, the Institute for the Translational
Medicine and Therapeutics, and the Center for Clinical Epidemiology and
Biostatistics.
