Postdoctoral research associate and visiting student/scholar positions are available in the Department of Radiology and Biomedical Research Imaging Center (BRIC) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC-Chapel Hill). Our current focuses are to identify early brain biomarker on abnormal brain development.

The successful candidate should have a strong background on Electrical or Biomedical Engineering, or Computer Science, preferably with emphasis on image feature learning and segmentation. Experience on medical image segmentation using deep learning and shape statistics 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) is desirable. The research topic will be the development and validation of tissue segmentation and ROI labeling methods for infant brain images with risk of abnormal brain development, such as typical control subjects from our recently awarded Baby Connectome Project (BCP) as well as with-riks subjects from publicly dataset.
