The Laboratory for Advanced Computed Tomography Imaging of Dr. Peter B. Noël in the Radiology Department of the University of Pennsylvania is seeking a full-time, postdoctoral researcher with expertise in biomedical imaging. The research of the laboratory is dedicated to developing next-generation x-ray and Computed Tomography solutions to make additional diagnostic and therapy information available that exceeds current clinical standards. Primary research interest is spectral x-ray imaging with photon counting detectors and phase contrast & dark-field imaging in combination with the development of advanced algorithmic.
A candidate for this position should hold a Ph.D. in one of the following or closely related fields: physics, bioengineering, computer sciences, mechanical engineering, or electrical engineering. Prior working experience in the area of biomedical imaging is highly desirable. A strong background in x-ray imaging, image reconstruction, and/or machine learning is a plus. The applicant should be highly motivated, exhibit excellent interpersonal and communication skills, and be able to prioritize multiple tasks.
Applicants should send an email with attached CV explaining their interest in the position to Dr. Noël (firstname.lastname@example.org).
2 openings. Telecommuting is allowed.
About University of Pennsylvania
The Laboratory for Advanced Computed Tomography Imaging is dedicated to developing next generation x-ray and computed tomography solutions to provide clinicians with information that exceeds present clinical standards.When it comes to diagnostics and therapy monitoring, the current tendency is to look at simple "gray values" and contrast differences to determine whether anatomical or pathological changes have occurred. Our long-term vision is to play an active role in the fundamental transformation of x-ray-based imaging towards a diagnostics and therapy tool assisting on the biomolecular level with novel contrast mechanisms.We address the whole imaging chain by employing cross-discipline approaches, ranging from novel x-ray detection concepts to machine-learning algorithms. Our strong collaboration with experts in clinical departments and the medical device industry guides and accelerates the translation of novel technologies into early clinical applications. The Laboratory for Advanced Computed Tomography Imaging is located in the Department of Radiology of the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania.
