Open until Filled

Full- and Part-Time Research Positions in Computational Imaging and Machine Learning

The Center for Computational Imaging and Personalized Diagnostics (CCIPD) at Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) is seeking talented and motivated researchers across all levels (undergraduate and graduate students and postdoctoral researchers) with interest and expertise in computer science to work on radiomics, artificial intelligence, and machine learning in the fields of medical imaging, radiology, digital pathology, oncology, cardiovascular disease, nephrology and ophthalmology.

Interested candidates should have a background in programming, ideally with both MATLAB and Python. Undergraduate and graduate students and postdoctoral research associates will be working on development of image analytic/machine learning algorithms for clinical applications.

CCIPD offers an intellectually stimulating environment for students and postdocs to develop and apply image-computing solutions to highly translational and clinically relevant problems in oncology, cardiology, nephrology and neurology. Students and postdocs work closely with clinical collaborators including radiologists, pathologists, surgeons, and medical, and radiation oncologists. The CWRU campus is located in the heart of Cleveland and is within a 10-minute walk of three nationally and internationally renowned medical centers: University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center, Cleveland Clinic Foundation, and Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center.

Representative projects within CCIPD include distinguishing normal from disease states for different patient cohorts, ranging from cancers like lung, breast, rectal, brain, head and neck, to non-oncologic related pathologies like chronic kidney disease, Alzheimer’s disease, cardiac failure, eye disease, and inflammatory bowel diseases. Examples include recurrent brain tumors from post- radiation changes, planning surgical margins in patients undergoing excision for rectal cancers using MRI, predicting the need of adjuvant chemotherapy for breast cancer patients, amongst many others.

In the past eight years, the center has grown rapidly, now boasting more than 60 members including faculty, staff, graduate and undergraduate students and postdoctoral researchers. CCIPD members have received awards from the NIH, DOD the VA, and others amounting to more than $50M in federal, state and industry funding and have published in high impact journals such as Lancet Oncology, Clinical Cancer Research, Nature Reviews Clinical Oncology and Nature Reviews Drug Discovery.

CCIPD is heavily involved in translational activities with grants and joint projects with industry partners in medical imaging and cancer diagnostics. CCIPD researchers also work closely with cancer diagnostic and medical imaging companies on industry sponsored research projects. Additionally, CCIPD has spawned two startups and been awarded >60 patents, averaging one issuance every three and a half weeks in 2020.

We are seeking to fill undergraduate, masters and post-doctoral positions. Applicants for post-doctoral positions must have a Ph.D. degree and have demonstrated excellent qualifications in research. A successful candidate would have or be pursuing a degree in Biomedical Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering or related field and a demonstrable record of accomplishment in medical image analysis, neuroimaging, computer vision, and image registration and feature extraction. Experience in programming is preferred with programming knowledge in MATLAB and Python being of value.
