The Computational Imaging Lab (www.cilab.upf.edu) at the Pompeu Fabra
University in Barcelona is a rapidly growing and dynamic team focused in algorithmic and applied research in the area of computer vision and computational modeling. The lab is composed of 15 members working in different domains of medical image segmentation, statistical shape modeling and analysis, computational geometry, pattern recognition and, more recently, in image-based and personalised computational mechanics.
Currently, the lab is engaged in or about to start several exciting projects aiming at personalised physical modeling and simulation of organs where medical imaging, computational mechanics and biology play an essential role. Our aim is to use medical imaging technologies with a combination of computational imaging, modeling and simulation tools to develop personalised tools for risk assessment and personalised treatment design. In addition, by collaborating with several teams around Europe and the US, our goal is to integrate all
available information of a patient to personalised both diagnosis and
treatment. In this context, the lab has been recently been awarded several projects, including an Integrated Project funded by the European Commission, coordinated by the lab, which all aim at personalized and integrative biomedical informatics in the cardiac or cerebrovascular domains.
The CILab is seeking proactive and highly talented young researchers
at the post-doctoral level with proven track record of publications in leading international journals and conferences. In addition, a number
of scientific software developer 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 research team, and be endowed with excellent communication and leadership
skills so as to collaborate with other peers and co supervise PhD students. The ability to work in a multidisciplinary team and be able to interact with other disciplines are 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 expertise in the following areas will be given particular attention:
1/ computational modeling and simulation: electromechanical cardiac
modeling, computational fluid dynamics, computational biology,
biophysics, grid computing and numerical computing, multi-scale and
multi-formalism modeling 2/ computational imaging: elastic multimodal image registration, 3D-2D image registration, model-based image
segmentation, 3D vision and reconstruction from projections,
computational geometry, information theoretic approaches to computer
vision 3/ medical imaging: image-based non-invasive flow measurement
and elastography 4/ biomedical engineering: clinical tool
specification and quality assurance, evaluation of tools and methods
in clinical environments, coordination of applied research and
technology transfer to industry and clinical centers
Starting dates will be prior to January 2006; positions will be for a
period of 3 to 4 years. No positions will be considered for less than
2 years. Salaries are negotiable depending upon qualifications and
experience of the applicants and compliant with Spanish salaries in
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 the coordinator of
the CILab, Dr. Frangi [firstname.lastname@example.org], at your earliest
