In signal processing and image analysis for biomedical applications
Description: A postdoctoral research position is open for applicants with a strong background and research experience in biomedical signals and image analysis. The successful candidates will work on NIH-funded multidisciplinary research projects focused on research and development of advanced optical techniques and ultrasonically-assisted optical methods for in-vivo diagnosis and therapy of human diseases including vulnerable atherosclerotic plaque. The projects involve the development of novel optical signal processing, image analysis, reconstruction and classification methods with application to fluorescence lifetime spectroscopy/imaging microscopy as well as to ultrasound backscatter microscopy. Theoretical and computational studies will be combined with experimental research in our laboratory.
Qualifications: Candidates must have a Ph.D. in electrical engineering, biomedical engineering, computer science or other relevant discipline with considerable mathematical and computational experience including signal and image processing, non-linear and dynamical systems, and multivariate statistics. Knowledge of MATLAB and C/C++ programming is essential. The candidate must have demonstrated a strong background in signal and image processing as evidenced from publication of papers in peer-reviewed conferences and journals; and be able to work independently and in an interdisciplinary team. Interested applicants should submit, via e-mail, a complete curriculum vitae, the contact information for three references, and a copy of one or two publication from previous research.
