Postdoctoral Researcher in Cardiac Image Processing

Johns Hopkins University

United States


General Description

A postdoctoral position is available at the Center for Imaging Science at the Johns Hopkins University. This fellowship is focusing on developing and applying novel medical image processing techniques (registration, segmentation, statistical shape modeling) to in vivo and ex vivo MR images in a preclinical study of cardiovascular disease.



The successful candidate must be highly motivated and have an advanced degree (Ph.D.) with strong mathematical background in any of the following fields: applied mathematics, applied or medical physics, electrical or biomedical engineering, or related fields with research focus on biomedical image processing and medical image computing. The candidate will be involved in developing/utilizing algorithms based on optimal control theory/variational problem and statistical shape models to investigate heart failure using multi-modality cardiac MR images. Ideal candidate should have experience in high performing programming languages such as C++ and Python. Experience with developing image-processing tools using ITK/VTK environment is a plus.

Excellent oral and written communication skills in English are required.
