Postdoctoral position in Medical Image Processing
The deadline for applying to this position has passed.
Uppsala University is a comprehensive research-intensive university with a strong international standing. Our ultimate goal is to conduct education and research of the highest quality and relevance to make a long-term difference in society. Our most important assets are all the individuals whose curiosity and dedication make Uppsala University one of Sweden’s most exciting workplaces. Uppsala University has over 45,000 students, more than 7,000 employees and a turnover of around SEK 7 billion.
The Department of Information Technology has approximately 350 employees and 4000 students per year and provides education and research of the highest international quality in Computer Science and its sub-disciplines. The strong focus on research impacts provides an excellent foundation for undergraduate education at the department. The department also hosts several interdisciplinary research groups, and the department supports initiatives in the areas of equal opportunities and equality. Research is organized in five divisions. For more information, see http://www.it.uu.se.
The research at the Division of Visual Information and Interaction (Vi2) is a unique combination of expertise in computerised image analysis and human-computer interaction. The image analysis research within Vi2 is focused towards theoretical analysis and algorithm development and applications within primarily biomedicine and handwritten text recognition. More information about the department and its activities can be found at http://www.it.uu.se.
Computerised image analysis and processing encompass the development and analysis of theory and methods to create and handle digital images and extract information from the image content. The methods aim at one or more of the following: to quantitatively or qualitatively describe the content of an image, to segment/divide and image into meaningful parts in order for these to be automatically identified, described or interpreted, to develop autonomous and interactive methods and systems for image capturing, analysis and visualisation, to visualise a data subset for interpretation and analysis, to compress/represent an image for efficient transfer and storage.
The research work takes place in a multidisciplinary team with a focus on image processing with applications in neuroradiology. The team is based at the Department of Visual Information and Interaction at the Department of Information Technology at Uppsala University and with an international connection.
The research in the project is on developing and evaluating methods for detection and quantification in neuroradiology. An overall goal is to make advanced image processing methods available for treatment follow-up in neuroradiology. The position concerns research in the above-mentioned projects, and teaching (up to 20%).
To qualify for an employment as a postdoctor you must have a PhD degree or a foreign degree equivalent to a PhD degree in Medical Image Processing. The PhD degree must have been obtained no more than three years prior to the application deadline. The three year period can be extended due to circumstances such as sick leave, parental leave, duties in labour unions, etc.
The candidate must have a strong background from machine learning and computerized image analysis. A successful candidate must be strongly motivated and have the capability to work independently as well as in collaboration with members of the research group.
Experience in research and method development in image processing in neuroimaging is an advantage.
