Job Opportunities

Current openings


Positions as postdoctoral associate or research investigator (depending on expertise) on computational neuroimaging

Positions as postdoctoral associate or research investigator (depending on expertise) on computational neuroimaging are available at the Center for Biomedical Image Computing and Analytics, University of Pennsylvania. The successful candidate must have background and interest in using machine learning and image analysis methods to solve clinical neuroscience problems. Opportunities in the following areas exist: 1) two large consortia in the areas of brain aging, and neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric disorders, which offer exciting new opportunities to develop and apply big-data analytics and machine learning methods on pooled cohorts of more than 18,000 multi-modal brain MRI scans; 2) radiomics and radiogenomics of brain cancer, which offers exciting opportunities to develop and apply machine learning methods in order to develop imaging signatures of genetic mutations and pathways. CBICA is a dynamically growing medical image computing center, involving several laboratories and many collaborators from diverse fields. Please e-mail CV's to Christos.Davatzikos@uphs.upenn.edu


Postdoctoral positions in Medical Image Analysis

Multiple postdoctoral positions in medical image analysis and machine learning are available at the Section of Biomedical Image Analysis (SBIA), Department of Radiology, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA, USA. Candidates must have a background in Image Processing, Statistical Analysis, or Pattern Recognition. Experience in fMRI data analysis, image segmentation, image registration, or deep learning is a plus. The postdoctoral fellows will have opportunities to work on deep learning for image segmentation, image registration, fMRI data analysis, and image based prediction modeling. Please contact Yong Fan at yong.fan@uphs.upenn.edu.


Application Developer

The Center for Biomedical Image Computing and Analytics (CBICA) at the University of Pennsylvania is looking for an experienced software developer to work with researchers on biomedical image analysis. The preferred candidate will make a direct contribution to medical and scientific research by applying good software engineering practices in continuing our effort of transforming projects from the research stage into polished applications to be deployed in a clinical setting.

Working as part of a team and collaborating closely with researchers, the developer will be responsible for writing, rewriting, or refactoring medical image computing software developed by CBICA researchers to follow internal standards and integrate with an existing GUI based on C++ and Qt. The candidate will contribute to the development and improvement of consistent interfaces and methods to provide the research software to clinical users. The candidate will provide guidance in software development principles and practices to members of CBICA.

Postdoctoral position in Computational Neuroimaging

A postdoctoral position on computational neuroimaging is available at the Center for Biomedical Image Computing and Analytics, University of Pennsylvania. The successful candidate must have background and interest in using neuroimaging to solve clinical neuroscience problems, especially in the area of aging, neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric disorders. The position will entail involvement in various structural and functional neuroimaging studies utilizing advanced image analysis. CBICA is a dynamically growing medical image computing center, involving several laboratories and many collaborators from diverse fields. The center recently received NIH funding for neuroimaging consortia in aging/AD and psychosis, which will involve totally about 15,000 sMRI scans (also rsfMRI and PET amyloid scans). Machine learning and pattern analysis methods will be used to derive population-wide imaging signatures related to aging, early stages of neurodegeneration, and psychosis. The postdoctoral fellow will be involved in one or both of these studies. Please e-mail CV's to christos@rad.upenn.edu.


Postdoctoral fellowship position in Diffusion Imaging

Multiple postdoctoral positions in diffusion imaging are available at the Section of Biomedical Image Analysis (SBIA), Department of Radiology, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA, USA. Candidates must have a background in Electrical or Biomedical Engineering, Computer Science, Applied Math or MR Physics. Experience in diffusion imaging is a plus. Current projects involve work on multi-compartment models, edema-invariant tractography and joint structural-functional connectivity analysis and their application to brain tumors, traumatic brain injury and autism. All projects have a strong emphasis on method development but require subsequent clinical application of the same. The positions call for interaction with clinical collaborators. Good programming skills is a must.
