Post-doctoral Fellowship

Medical Image Processing – Machine Learning & Computer-Aided Diagnosis
A post-doctoral fellowship is available for 2D/2.5D/3D/4D radiology image processing in
Bethesda, Maryland, USA. Specific interest areas are deep learning, image segmentation,
modeling, visualization, pattern recognition, computer-aided diagnosis, multi-organ
models, atlases and registration. In particular, advanced skills in image processing
(computer vision, mathematical modeling, optimization, machine learning) are sought.
The researcher will work closely with staff scientists, imaging specialists and clinicians
and have access to state-of-the-art whole body MRI, MRI-PET, low-dose CT scanners,
advanced graphics workstations and parallel processing/GPU clusters.
Basic Qualifications: Ph.D. in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, or related
discipline with experience in Computer Vision, Machine Learning, or Image
Understanding domain, along with successful demonstration of key responsibilities.
Desirable Qualifications: Strong theoretical and practical background in computer vision,
image and video analysis, such as object detection and recognition, statistical pattern
recognition, machine learning, sparse methods and applied optimization. Prior knowledge
about medical imaging is a plus but not a must. Enthusiasm in solving real world clinical
imaging problems using large datasets, and hands-on coding skills and ability in C++ and
This appointment is for one year and is renewable thereafter on a periodic basis (up to
five years). Applications should include a CV, brief statement of research interests and
three letters of reference. DHHS and NIH are Equal Opportunity Employers.
