IST/e Symposium 2013 on June 24th in Eindhoven, the Netherlands

Anna Vilanova invited us to join the first public IST/e (Imaging Science & Technology Eindhoven) symposium on June 24th in Eindhoven. The symposium will give an overview of the cross-divisional research on biomedical imaging carried out by the IST/e consortium of Eindhoven University of Technology. In addition, keynote speakers from Harvard Medical School, Imperial College London and University of Auckland will give presentations within the research scope of IST/e. The symposium is free of charge and open to anyone interested (subject to a maximum of 75 participants, “first come, first serve”).

Description: cid:image003.png@01CE3772.B3C821C0

The program features three internationally renowned keynote speakers, one for each IST/e application theme:

  • Dr. Alistair Young (Univ. of Auckland, New Zealand) in the cardio theme,
  • Dr. Edward Leen (Imperial College London, UK) in the onco theme
  • Dr. Lauren O’Donnell (Harvard Medical School, Boston, USA) in the neuro theme.

The invitation and final program for the Imaging Science & Technology Eindhoven (IST/e) Symposium 2013 can be found here and here. Please register (free of charge) as soon as posisble by sending an email to

PhD position Uncertainty Visualization for Digital Radiation Therapy available at Eindhoven University of Technology (the Netherlands)

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).

Associate Professor in Biomedical Image Analysis position available at Eindhoven University of Technology (the Netherlands)

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.

Scientific programmer vacancy at the TU Eindhoven (The Netherlands)

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!
