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.
An example of Multiple Scelerosis research done at CRL: a high resolution single subject atlas of white matter fiber tracts.

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
You’d be working at the Imaging Science and Technology Eindhoven Institute (IST/e), which aims to grow to a leading research institute on the crossroads of image acquisition, mathematical modeling, algorithmics, visualization and biomedical applications of complex images or image sequences on the basis of advanced acquisition techniques. The group has a strong collaboration with Philips Healthcare and Philips Research (both 4 km away), and a range of (international) hospitals.
Check out the full job description and apply here. There’s some conflicting information on the closure date of this position, but I see 31-10-2012 on a lot of pages (here and here for instance), so I assume it is still open.update: the closing date for this position is 31-12-2012.
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.
The Anatomage Table, a life-size virtual dissection table for the medical community, is an example of one of the products made by Anatomage.
More information about Anatomage can be found on their website and the full job description is available here.
There’s a 1-year Research Associate position available at Cardiff University in the School of Computer Science & Informatics to work on projects within the Advanced Medical Image Analysis and Visualization department collaborating with the NHS in Wales and Aberystwyth, Bangor and Swansea Universities. You will undertake novel and high quality research within the Advanced Medical Image Analysis and Visualization Unit, working closely with Professor N J Avis. All you need for this is a doctorate degree in computer science, mathematics, or engineering or in a closely related area or equivalent experience.
More information can be found here and here and detailed information can be found by searching the Cardiff jobs site for vacancy number 307BR. The closing date is the 7th of September and thus rapidly closing in 😉
Another day, another job opportunity! This time the Digital Imaging Group of London (the Canada version) has a postdoctoral fellowship available in medical image analysis and visualization in collaboration with GE Healthcare. You’d be doing cutting-edge research with researchers from GE Healthcare, Western University, Robarts Research Institute, Lawson Health Research Institute and the London Health Sciences Centre. The work also involves direct interaction with radiologists.
More information about this excellent opportunity can be found here.
There’s a Ph.D. position available in the exciting research field of medical visualization at Graz University of Technology in Austria. The project you’d be working on involves the visualization of minimally invasive intervention simulation, such as RFA or cryoablation for cancer treatment .
The start date for the position in this EU-funded project is the first of January in 2013, so start sending in those applications! More information can be found here.
The TU Eindhoven has a job opening for a scientific programmer working on the open source visualisation software vIST/e – a powerful, platform-independent software solution for the visualization and analysis of complex data (such as obtained from Diffusion Weighted Magnetic Resonance Imaging). This is a great opportunity to work together with Dr. Anna Vilanova and her group on their DWI software!
