Postdoctoral position - Computational Breast Imaging Group - University of Pennsylvania

posted Apr 24, 2014, 10:01 AM by Bradley Harden   [ updated Apr 24, 2014, 10:02 AM ]
The Computational Breast Imaging Group (CBIG) of the Radiology Department at the University of Pennsylvania has open postdoctoral positions.

CBIG is a research group within the Center for Biomedical Image Computing and Analytics with a mission to act as a translational catalyst between computational imaging science and breast cancer research. Work in our group focuses on developing innovative methodology for multimodality image analysis and also on incorporating such methods for improving personalized clinical decision making for breast cancer screening, prognosis, and treatment.

Postdoctoral Position Qualifications:
We are seeking highly motivated individuals with excellent academic track-record, including first-author publications in peer-reviewed journals. Successful candidates should have, or be in the process of completing, a PhD (or equivalent) in Computer Science, Biomedical Engineering, Biostatistics, or related field. Ideal applicants should have a background on biomedical imaging, statistical analysis and/or machine learning. Proficiency in computer programming (e.g., Matlab, C/C++, Windows/Linux platforms) and statistical analysis methods (e.g., R, STATA, SPSS) is essential. Applicants should demonstrate excellent oral and written communication skills, and the ability to work effectively independently and as part of a multidisciplinary team.

Successful applicants will join a vibrant collaborative research environment, will work closely with clinical investigators, and will gain a first-hand experience of our breast imaging program. Collaborators include faculty in our Radiology department, the Abramson Cancer Center, the Institute for the Translational Medicine and Therapeutics, and the Center for Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics.
