Saint Louis, MO
Job Type: 
Full Time
Closing Date: 
Thursday, August 1, 2019

The research group of Dr. Sotiras, a part of the Electronic Radiology Lab at Washington University in St. Louis, is currently seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral research associate with a strong research record in computational image analysis, computer vision, or machine learning, who is interested in solving important clinical problems. The lab is a diverse and interdisciplinary team whose research focuses on advancing imaging informatics technology and developing advanced computational techniques for quantitative image analysis.

The successful candidate will lead or participate in projects developing, implementing and applying machine learning algorithms for the analysis and interpretation of medical images and related clinical data. More specifically, the successful candidate will develop novel computational and analytical techniques to quantify morphology and function from multi-modal imaging data, analyze the relationship between brain imaging markers and cognition or clinical status, and integrate this information into predictive tools for patient-specific diagnosis and prognosis with the goal of improving our understanding of brain structure in health and disease. Applications of interest include multi-modal neuroimaging studies in neurology and psychiatry. The successful candidate will have a unique opportunity to work closely with clinical investigators and will have ample opportunities to present research methods and scientific findings at national and international conferences, and to publish results in academic journals.

For additional information, please follow the link.

Interested applicants should send 1) a one-page cover letter summarizing their interests, how they can contribute to the lab, as well as the earliest date that they can start the appointment, 2) curriculum vitae, and 3) contact information for two references to Dr. Aristeidis Sotiras, aristeidis.sotiras@wustl.edu. Only applicants considered for employment will be contacted. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis.
