Postdoctoral Research Position in Brain Image Analysis

The Department of Radiology at UC Davis invites applications for a postdoctoral research position focusing on the development and optimization of computational techniques for biomedical image analysis. Specific projects will involve image segmentation, registration, and visualization spanning preclinical and clinical data and PET and MRI scans. The successful candidate will have a Ph.D. in the Engineering or Medical Physics fields and a strong background in both the theoretical aspects and practical implementation of algorithms for image analysis, as evidenced by first author journal papers and conference abstracts. Experience in the validation of image processing methods, atlas-based image analysis, PET and MRI acquisition, PET kinetic modeling and inverse problems in the context of brain imaging is highly desirable. Ability to communicate and collaborate with an interdisciplinary group of clinicians and scientists is necessary. Both fresh Ph.D. and more experienced candidates will be considered.

UC Davis offers outstanding research and training opportunities for the successful candidate. The infrastructure consists of a range of preclinical and clinical imaging systems, and access to high performance computing resources. There are established collaborations with the Center for Molecular and Genomic Imaging and the Departments of Neurology, Medicine, Molecular Biosciences, Biomedical Engineering and the California National Primate Research Center. UC Davis is ranked 9th among U.S. public universities (U.S. World and News Report). The university is located in Northern California, within easy reach of Lake Tahoe, San Francisco, Napa Valley, Yosemite and the Northern California coast.
