Seeking Applicants For:
Postdoctoral Researcher – 3D image processing & visualization
University of Washington Vascular Imaging Laboratory
Seattle, WA USA
The Vascular Imaging Laboratory (VIL) of the University of Washington Department of Radiology is seeking applicants for a postdoctoral position in the area of image processing and 3D visualization to support efforts in the analysis of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of vascular disease. The position has an initial appointment of 1 year that may be extended for an additional year.
The research project(s) will focus on providing analytical tools for rapid processing, display and interactive adjustment of vessel wall MRI. Recent advances in this field have enabled the acquisition of high-resolution, large coverage, 3D volumetric data sets. Innovative techniques are needed to extract clinically relevant information for clinical interpretation. The successful applicant will work with clinical radiologists, engineers, and physicists within the VIL.
Candidates should hold a PhD in Computer Science, Electrical/Computer Engineering or a related field. Strong programming skills and experience in 3D visualization techniques are required. Prior experience in medical imaging, particularly MRI, is desirable but not necessary.
The VIL is a research laboratory dedicated to the use of medical imaging for the assessment of vascular disease. The primary focus has been the prevention of stroke through MRI of atherosclerosis in the carotid artery. In addition to numerous grants from the National Institutes of Health, VIL has been supported through close partnership with industry. VIL is also closely affiliated with the Biomedical Imaging Center, which includes a whole body 3T MRI scanner dedicated for research.
Interested candidates should send inquiries and CVs to
