Postdoctoral Research Position in Computational Imaging and Machine Learning (Case Western Reserve University)

Sunday 2nd May 2021

The Imaging Informatics for Interventions (INVent) Lab at Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) is seeking a talented and motivated postdoctoral researcher.
A successful candidate for a postdoctoral research position would have a PhD degree in Biomedical Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, or related field and have a record of accomplishments in medical image analysis, neuroimaging, computer vision, or image registration and feature extraction. Candidates should have an interest and expertise in computer science to apply to radiomics, artificial intelligence, and machine learning in the fields of medical imaging, radiology, digital pathology, oncology, cardiovascular disease, nephrology, neurology, and ophthalmology. Experience in programming is preferred with knowledge in MATLAB and Python, statistics, and data analysis being a plus. Applicants for postdoctoral positions must have a PhD and demonstrated excellent qualifications in research. 
INVent Lab offers an intellectually stimulating environment for students and researchers to develop and apply image-computing solutions to highly translational and clinically relevant problems. Students and researchers work closely with clinical collaborators including radiologists, pathologists, surgeons, and medical and radiation oncologists. The CWRU campus is in the heart of Cleveland and is within a ten-minute walk of three nationally and internationally renowned medical centers all of whom collaborate closely with INVent Lab: University Hospitals, Cleveland Clinic, and Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center. 

Researchers will work on the development of image analytic/machine learning algorithms for clinical applications. Representative projects include distinguishing normal from disease states for different patient cohorts, ranging from cancers including lung, prostate, breast, rectal, brain, and 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 identifying pathologic complete responders after chemoradiation in rectal cancers using MRI, p spatially correlating high resolution digital pathology with corresponding imaging data, and predicting the need for aggressive biologics or surgery in inflammatory bowel diseases, amongst many others.

INVent Lab is closely affliated with the Center for Computational Imaging and Personalized Diagnostics (CCIPD), which boasts more than 60 members including faculty, staff, graduate and undergraduate students, and postdoctoral researchers. Lab members have received awards from the National Institutes of Health, Department of Defense, Department of Veterans Affairs, and others amounting to more than $50M in federal, state and industry funding. CCIPD researchers have published in high impact journals such as Lancet Oncology, Clinical Cancer Research, Nature Reviews Clinical Oncology, and Nature Reviews Drug Discovery.
We are heavily involved in translational activities, including pharmaceutical and industry sponsored research projects, with the goal of bringing new AI tools to clinicians and patients around the world. CCIPD has spawned two startups and has been awarded more than 60 patents – with 15 awarded in 2020 alone. Our research interests include using AI to develop population-specific tools and reduce health disparities.
