The Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden is looking for an Assistant Professor in Medical Image Analysis, because a new research group in medical image analysis is in the process of being established there. The focus of the group is on the development of new and more effective medical imaging methods and systems for visualization, support and diagnostics. Your goal would be to develop new methods for segmentation, registration and reconstruction problems for large-scale problems from multi-modal sensor data such as CT, MR and ultrasound. The research will cover basic mathematical aspects of imaging with focus on algorithms as well as the development of prototype systems.
The University Medical Center (UMC) Utrecht has a PhD candidate position available for four years. You would be working on real-time plan adaptations for a hybrid radiotherapy system. This system, developed between UMC Utrecht, in collaboration with Elektra and Philips, is the world’s first radiotherapy system integrated with a 1.5 T MRI scanner. The system can deliver radiation with mm accuracy while the target is visualized by MRI. The current project concerns the use of real-time MRI guidance for radiotherapy plan adaptations.
More information can be found here. The closing date for this job opening is March 2013. On this page more information about the project and sub-projects is available. From the looks of it, they actually have two positions available.
Eindhoven University of Technology and more specifically the Department of Biomedical Engineering have a PhD position available on the interesting topic of uncertainty visualization for digital radiotherapy planning in the Multivalued Image Analysis & Visualization group led by dr. Anna Vilanova. This project is part of the FP7 EU-STREP project ‘DR THERAPAT’- Digital Radiation Therapy Patient’. The goal of this project is to achieve an easy-to-use and easy-to-understand visualization and exploration of the multimodal, multi-value data involved in cancer radiotherapy planning – including the uncertainty in these data – in each step of the radiotherapy planning pipeline and in the final planning outcome.
More information on this position can be found here. Don’t miss this excellent opportunity if you’re interested and apply before the application deadline (the 29th of December 2012).
The Computational Radiology Laboratory (CRL) at the Children’s Hospital in Boston are looking for a programmer to work on several research projects in medical image computing. You would be involved in developing software with other CRL members and clinical research teams in the fields of registration, segmentation, visualization, medical image computing and diffusion imaging analysis. For this you need to be excellent at C++ coding and to have experience with ITK, VTK and Qt among other requirements.
Read this if you want to find out more about this position. The closing date is the first of November, so apply soon if you’re interested in this.
The second position mentioned in this post is still available! To reiterate, they are looking for an Early Stage Researcher in the EU Initial Training Network (ITN) Software for the use of Multi-Modality Images in External Radiotherapy (SUMMER).
They are looking for a motivated young scientist that would love to use medical visualization to aid in the development of cutting edge solutions for radiotherapy planning. The starting date is as soon as possible, but before January 1, 2013. If you are interested in this position, please check this page for more details or contact Katja Bühler (email@example.com) via e-mail. If you’re currently attending MICCAI 2012, you could also arrange to meet her there via e-mail.
Eindhoven University of Technology is looking for an associate professor in biomedical image analysis (BMIA). The scientific research in the group BMIA focuses on three closely intertwined areas:
- Design of advanced mathematical algorithms
- Visualization of multi-valued data
- Cardiovascular and neuro applications
If you like anatomy, enjoy software engineering and are looking for a job, this post might be right up your ally. Anatomage, a company specializing in 3D medical technology, is looking for a 3D software engineer. Your tasks would include writing software for visualizing 3D volumetric imaging data read from DICOM files, developing geometric modeling algorithms and user interface for creating and manipulating 3D models from image data, preparing software documentation including the functional specifications and reference manual and providing technical support to customers.
