    Open post-doctoral positions in computational imaging and modelling
    Computational Imaging Lab - Pompeu Fabra University - Barcelona - Spain

    The Computational Imaging Lab ( at the Pompeu Fabra
    University in Barcelona is team focused on algorithmic and applied research
    in the area of computer vision and computational modelling. The lab is
    composed of 20 members working in different domains of medical image
    segmentation, statistical shape modelling and analysis, computational
    geometry, pattern recognition and image-based and personalised computational
    Currently, the lab is engaged in or about to start several exciting projects
    aiming at personalised physical modelling and simulation of organs where
    medical imaging, computational mechanics and biology play an essential role.
    Our aim is to use medical imaging technologies with a combination of
    computational imaging, modelling and simulation tools to develop
    personalised tools for risk assessment and personalised treatment design. In
    addition, by collaborating with several teams around Europe and the US, our
    goal is to integrate all available information of a patient to personalised
    diagnosis and treatment.
    In this context, the lab has been recently awarded and coordinates an
    Integrated Project funded by the European Commission, which aims at
    personalized and integrative biomedical informatics in the cerebrovascular
    domain. Additionally, the lab is also engaged in a national technology
    platform aiming at cardiac modelling and simulation for patient selection
    and interventional planning in cardiac resynchronization therapy.

    The CILab is seeking proactive and highly talented young post-doctoral
    researchers with proven track record of publications in leading
    international journals and conferences. In addition, a number of scientific
    developer and application engineer positions are also available in similar
    areas. Candidates should be highly creative, have the ability to carry out
    independent research but work embedded in a research team, and should be
    endowed with excellent communication and leadership skills so as to
    collaborate with other peers. The ability to work in a multidisciplinary
    team and be able to interact with other disciplines is essential.
    All applicants should have a strong background in mathematics and physics,
    algorithmics and programming [preferably in C++]. Proficiency in spoken and
    written English is compulsory.

    Candidates with expertise in the following areas are sought:
    1/ computational imaging: elastic multimodal image registration,
    3D-2D image registration, model-based image segmentation, 3D vision and
    reconstruction from projections, computational geometry, information
    theoretic approaches to computer vision
    2/ medical imaging: image-based non-invasive flow measurement and
    3/ biomedical engineering: clinical tool specification and quality
    assurance, evaluation of tools and methods in clinical environments,
    coordination of applied research and technology transfer to industry and
    clinical centres
    4/ computational modelling and simulation: electromechanical cardiac
    modelling, computational fluid dynamics, computational biology, biophysics,
    grid computing and numerical computing, multi-scale and multi-formalism

    Starting dates will be prior to July 2006; positions will be for a period of
    3 to 4 years. No positions will be considered for less than 2 years.
    Salaries are negotiable depending upon qualifications and experience of the
    applicants and compliant with Spanish salaries in academic institutions. EU
    citizens will be given priority due to labour regulations and work permit
    Interested candidates should submit a letter of purpose indicating your area
    of interest, salary expectations, CV including contact details of 3
    referees, and sample publications to Dr. Alejandro Frangi
    [], at your earliest convenience.
