Openings for Research Associate in Radiomics, Machine Learning, and Computational Imaging  for Interventional Applications

The Imaging iNformatics for interVentions Laboratory (INVent Lab) at Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) is seeking a research associate with interest and expertise in radiomics, image analysis, and machine learning in the context of interventional applications for gastrointestinal cancers and inflammatory diseases.

INVent Lab offers an intellectually stimulating environment for students and postdocs to develop and apply image computing solutions to highly translational and clinically relevant problems. We work closely with the clinical collaborators, including radiologists, pathologists, surgeons, gastroenterologists, and radiation oncologists. The CWRU campus is located in the heart of Cleveland, and is within a 10 minute walk or drive of 4 nationally and internationally renowned medical centers: University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center, Cleveland Clinic, MetroHealth Medical Center, and Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center. Our collaborations include clinical and basic science researchers from multiple institutions - both locally and globally. We are funded through the DOD/CDMRP program as well as the NIH for our research.

The research associate will be working on development of image analytic/machine learning algorithms for interventional applications in gastrointestinal cancers and diseases. Applications will include problems in image-guided interventions, directed guidance, and quantitative evaluation of response to treatment (radiotherapy, chemotherapy, focal ablation). Applicants must have a Ph.D. degree and have demonstrated excellent qualifications in research. A successful candidate would have a PhD degree in in Biomedical Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering or related field and a demonstrable record of accomplishment in medical image analysis, computer vision, image registration, pattern recognition, and/or feature extraction. Experience in MATLAB and C++ programming is required.

INVent Lab is affiliated with the Center for Computational Imaging and Personalized Diagnostics (CCIPD) at CWRU. CCIPD comprises three full time faculty members developing new technology in the fields of digital pathology, radiomics, radiogenomics, and image guided interventions. In the past four years, the center has rapidly grown, now boasting over 35 members including faculty, staff, graduate and undergraduate students and post-doctoral researchers. In the past year, the members have received awards amounting to $10M in federal, state and industry funding. Center members published over 20 peer-reviewed papers, 50 conference presentations, and had 10 patents used in 2017 alone. CCIPD researchers also work closely with a number of diagnostic and medical imaging companies on industry sponsored research projects.

In employment, as in education, Case Western Reserve University is committed to Equal Opportunity and Diversity. Women, veterans, members of underrepresented minority groups, and individuals with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
