    ================================================== =====================
    Post-doctoral positions in computational cardiac imaging and modelling
    Computational Imaging Lab - Pompeu Fabra University - Barcelona - Spain
    ================================================== =====================

    The Computational Imaging Lab ( at the Pompeu Fabra
    University in Barcelona is a team focused on algorithmic and applied
    research in the area of computational imaging, modelling and simulation. The
    lab is composed of 25 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 several exciting projects aiming at
    personalised physical modelling and simulation in the cardiovascular domain
    where medical imaging, computational mechanics, and biology play an
    essential role.
    This post is connected to a national technology platform funded by the
    Ministry of Industry that aims at applying computational imaging and
    simulation technologies to patient selection and interventional planning in
    cardiac resynchronization therapy. Our aim is to develop dynamic anatomical
    models of the whole heart as well as to derive boundary conditions and
    material properties from multimodal imagery (e.g. 3D US, MRI, MSCT, SPECT).
    Integration of all this information will be performed by combination of
    computational imaging tools with computational mechanics in order to deliver
    advanced diagnosis and personalized treatment planning and optimization.

    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 multicultural 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 should have expertise in computational cardiac modelling and
    simulation, in particular, on cardiac electrophysiology, cardiac mechanics,
    and computational fluid dynamics. The main focus of the research will be in
    the integration of the existing tools in the lab for computational imaging
    with computational physiology models and experimental measurements. The
    candidate will have to interact with members of the lab of related topics as
    well as with our clinical collaborators at several academic hospitals in

    Starting dates will be prior to January 2007; positions will be for a period
    of 3 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 constraints.
    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.
