PhD positions in biomedical imaging computing

Tuesday 12th May 2020

The Biomedical Imaging and Computation Laboratory (BIC Lab) at Lehigh University (Bethlehem, USA) is currently accepting applications for PhD positions in biomedical imaging computing.

Position description: The research project will focus on developing and applying a variety of machine learning/deep learning methods for biomedical imaging analysis and prediction. The successful applicant will contribute to research and development in artificial intelligence (AI)-driven neural biomarker discovery using advanced neuroimaging techniques (e.g., MRI and EEG) for brain-computer interaction and precision medicine of brain diseases.

Qualifications: Successful applicant will have a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Electrical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Computer Science, or other related fields, and strong motivation to do high-quality research in novel biomedical imaging computing with machine learning. Additionally, strong quantitative skills and a programming background (Matlab and/or Python) are important. Previous research experiences in related fields and scientific publications in journals/conferences are preferred. 

Lehigh University: Lehigh University is a premier research university in the United States, consistently ranked in the top tier of national research universities each year. It is a coeducational, nondenominational, private university that offers a distinctive academic environment for undergraduate and graduate students from across the globe. Located in Pennsylvania’s scenic Lehigh Valley, the campus is situated on 1,600 acres in close proximity to both New York City and Philadelphia.

The application materials will be reviewed immediately once received. The expected starting time is Fall 2020 or Spring 2021. Interested candidates should send a cover letter describing your research interests, CV (including undergraduate GPA and ranking, transcripts if applicable), and contact information of three references to Dr. Yu Zhang at yzhangsu@stanford.edu and zhangyubrain@gmail.com.
