Postdoctoral Research - Cardiovascular Imaging - Case Western Reserve University

posted Mar 27, 2014, 9:32 AM by Bradley Harden

We are seeking postdoctoral imaging researchers to develop new translational applications in cardiovascular imaging. Cutting-edge clinical image acquisition systems include microscopic imaging of the blood vessel wall with OCT and quantitative CT imaging using a clinical prototype, Philips Healthcare Spectral CT. We will are creating image analysis applications that can be translated to clinical solutions.

Successful applicants will join our team of biomedical engineers, computer scientists, cardiologists, and industrial researchers. As an example, we are using optical coherence tomography (OCT) to image coronary arteries. OCT provides microscopic imaging of the blood vessel wall enabling unique assessment of plaque vulnerability and thin tissue coverage of stents. Another project is advancing CT imaging to include reliable perfusion measurements of myocardial tissue using the latest Philips Healthcare, Spectral CT imaging system. This advancement will allow CT to become the only imaging modality providing a “one stop shop” for diagnosis including cardiac function, vascular anatomy, and tissue perfusion. We are creating image analysis applications that can be translated to clinical solutions. Our group has a broad base of funding from NIH, the Philips Healthcare Global Advanced Imaging Innovation Center at Case Western Reserve University and University Hospitals of Cleveland, Ohio Third Frontier, and the Cardiovascular Imaging Core Lab.

The biomedical imaging community at CWRU is outstanding. There are currently 26 tenured and tenure track faculty members in biomedical imaging and plans for growth. Facilities are superb. The educational program is well established and post docs have an opportunity to take classes and participate in seminars such as CWRU’s Imaging Hour, aka, “The Best Hour of the Week.”

Applicants are expected to have a PhD in engineering, computer science, medical physics or related field and knowledge of medical imaging and image analysis. The emphasis is creation of new image analysis methods using machine learning, registration, spatially regularized parameter estimation, etc. Specific knowledge of OCT, CT, perfusion, and/or cardiac imaging is a plus. A unique aspect of our work will be accurate validation using large animal models of coronary artery disease, providing ample opportunity for publications. We want ambitious candidates who will communicate well with our diverse, dynamic group; aggressively pursue research; and publish.

Applicants should send an email stating why they should be selected, curriculum vitae, and contact information for at least three references to Dr. David Wilson, Robert Herbold Professor of Biomedical Engineering and Radiology,

In employment, as in education, Case Western Reserve University is committed to Equal Opportunity and Diversity. Women, veterans, members of underrepresented minority groups, and individuals with disabilities are encouraged to apply. Case Western Reserve University provides reasonable accommodations to applicants with disabilities. Applicants requiring a reasonable accommodation for any part of the application and hiring process should contact the Office of Inclusion, Diversity and Equal Opportunity at 216-368-8877 to request a reasonable accommodation. Determinations as to granting reasonable accommodations for any applicant will be made on a case-by-case basis.

NIH Postdoctoral Position - Arterial Stiffness And Arterial-Ventricular Coupling

posted Aug 29, 2013, 2:59 PM by Bradley Harden


The Human Cardiovascular Studies Unit/Laboratory of Cardiovascular Science (LCS), a major component of the Intramural Research Program at the National Institute on Aging (NIA), is recruiting a postdoctoral fellow with interest in age-associated changes in arterial stiffness and arterial-ventricular coupling.

A major research focus of the Human Cardiovascular Studies Unit is exploring the age-associated changes in cardiovascular structure and function utilizing large, prospective, population-based studies. Since 1988, we have been performing serial comprehensive cardiovascular assessments using echocardiogram, multigated acquisition (MUGA) scans, exercise stress test, arterial applanation tonometry, and more recently magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) on participants from Baltimore Longitudinal Study on Aging and SardiNIA (A large prospective study conducted in SardiNIA, Italy). Extensive databases of these cardiovascular traits are available to test novel hypotheses on cardiovascular aging and identify targets for preventive interventions. We also work in collaboration with the Division of Cardiology at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, on state-of-art research projects including MRI assessment of coronary endothelial function among other projects.

We are looking for candidates with research interests and experience in the related fields of arterial stiffness and arterial-ventricular coupling, and familiarity with analyzing data from non-invasive techniques such from applanation tonometry, or cardiovascular imaging using MRI. Candidates are also expected to have statistical background as well as strong writing skills. Fellowship duration is up to 2-3 years. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in, epidemiology, physiology, biomedical engineering, or M.D., with less than five years of postdoctoral research experience. Salary is in accordance with NIH post-doctoral fellowship salary/stipend guidelines, and commensurate with experience and accomplishments.
