Postdoctoral Fellow in Deep Learning & AI-based quantitative MRI for Precision Medicine

Tuesday 8th October 2019

Technion - Israel Institute of Technology

We are looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow at the newly established Technion's Computational MRI lab (TCML) at the faculty of Biomedical Engineering of the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology. The major focus of the lab is to improve patient care through better characterization of the underlying physiological and structural factors in human diseases by developing novel deep-learning-based methods for MRI acquisition and analysis. We have access to a high-performance computing cluster which allows us to leverage deep-learning technologies at a scale and to a 3T human MRI scanner dedicated to research. Our current efforts are focusing around improving our capacity to quantify physiological properties from DW-MRI using deep-learning approaches with applications in Crohn's disease and fetal imaging.

Our previous research on body DW-MRI for Crohn's disease was funded by the NIH through an R01 research grant and the 2012 Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America research fellow award. Our work was published in high-impact journals and key conferences including several oral presentations at MICCAI and resulted in several patents. In addition, we have strong connections in the industry based on Dr. Freiman's previous experience as a staff research scientist at Philips Healthcare.

We are part of the faculty of biomedical engineering at the Technion. The Technion - Israel Institute of Technology is Israel’s premier center of science and technology education and applied research. It is ranked among the world’s best science and technology universities and is recognized as a global leader in cutting-edge research, innovation, and entrepreneurship. In the past decade, three Technion scientists won Nobel Prizes and many others received prestigious awards for their innovative research. Technion’s highly-trained graduates are the engine that drives Israel’s “Start-up Nation” economy. Technion’s powerful synergy with the tech sector in Israel has created an ecosystem of technological innovation, attracting numerous international tech giants such as Google, Apple and Microsoft, and inspiring hundreds of start-up enterprises in Israel and throughout the world.

The ideal candidate should hold a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering/electrical engineering/computer science or engineering/Physics/MRI, have strong programming skills, preferably in Python, and/or C++, and have expertise in machine/deep learning and/or in MRI acquisition and analysis.

Interested applicants should send a file including a CV, a publications list, three recommendation letters, and a short research plan outline (up to one page in length) to:
