Pulmonary image Analysis PhD students & Post-Docs

Biomedical Engineering, The Univ. of Iowa
Iowa City, IA USA
Job Type: 
Full Time
Closing Date: 
Thursday, August 1, 2019

Our research group is looking for talented PhD students and post-doctoral researchers to develop image analysis and machine learning algorithms to study the role of lung biomechanics in early and advanced chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).  We are particularly interested in individuals with experience in pulmonary image segmentation and registration, soft tissue biomechanics, tissue motion modeling, and disease trajectory models.

The positions  will provide an opportunity to work in a diverse interdisciplinary team with faculty collaborators from across the University of Iowa, including researchers from the Colleges of Engineering and Medicine and from the Iowa Institute of Biomedical Imaging (IIBI).

Ideal candidates will be highly motivated and have a strong background in medical image processing and/or tissue biomechanics.  Candidates must be able to communicate well and be able to work independently and on multi-disciplinary teams.  Candidates must be able to design, test, and document complex software systems, and deploy such systems to solve clinical problems.  Experience with GPU-based computing and high-performance computing clusters is a plus.

Applicants for the post-doc positions should hold a Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, or a closely related field.

Positions are available starting in immediately and are available until filled.  All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply.

Questions regarding these positons can be sent to Prof. Joe Reinhardt by email at joe-reinhardt@uiowa.edu.
