Postdoctoral Position on Dental Surgical Planning

Postdoctoral research associate positions are available in IDEA lab (http://bric.unc.edu/ideagroup), UNC-Chapel Hill, NC.

The successful candidate should have a strong background on Electrical or Biomedical Engineering, or Computer Science, preferably with knowledge on craniomaxillofacial (CMF) deformities surgical planning. Experience on dental CBCT segmentation/landmark detection and reference model estimation is highly desirable. People with machine learning background on medical imaging analysis are particularly encouraged to apply. Strong knowledge on programming (good command of LINUX, C and C++, scripting, and Matlab) and on deep learning tools (Caffe, TensorFlow and Keras) is highly desirable. The research topic will be the development and validation of segmentation/landmark detection methods, reference model estimation and eventually precise surgical planning for CMF patients.

The successful candidates will be part of a diverse group including radiologists, psychologists, physicists, biostatistician, and computer scientists, and will build upon the group's previous work on medical image analysis. If interested, please email resume to Dr. Dinggang Shen (dgshen@med.unc.edu).
