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. Please contact Ragini Verma (Associate Professor of Radiology, Section of Biomedical Image Analysis, UPenn) at Ragini.Verma@uphs.upenn.edu and Ragini.Verma@gmail.com.

Postdoctoral fellowship position in translational neuroimaging

A postdoctoral position in translational neuroimaging is available at the Center for Biomedical Image Computing and Analytics, University of Pennsylvania (https://www.cbica.upenn.edu). The successful candidate must have background and interest in using neuroimaging to solve clinical neuroscience problems. 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.

Please e-mail CV's to christos@rad.upenn.edu.

Postdoctoral Position at SBIA

Postdoctoral positions are available at the Section of Biomedical Image Analysis (SBIA), of the Department of Radiology, University of Pennsylvania. Please send CV to Christos Davatzikos at Christos@rad.upenn.edu.

The successful candidates must have background in Applied Math, Electrical or Biomedical Engineering, or Computer Science.

Several project opportunities exist, involving work on image analysis of medical images, with emphasis on shape modeling and analysis, deformable models, statistical image analysis and machine learning, among others.DTI/HARDI projects, involve work on registration, statistics and pattern classification .   Primary applications are to brain tumor, multiple sclerosis, AD and schizophrenia. No background in medical imaging is necessary, however having it is a plus.

SBIA is a dynamically growing medical image analysis group, including researchers and collaborators from diverse fields and offers exciting opportunities to researchers with interests in applying math, computer vision and engineering knowledge to the rapidly growing biomedical imaging field.
