Openings for Research Associates in Computational Imaging and Machine Learning
The Center for Computational Imaging and Personalized Diagnostics (CCIPD) at Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) has an opening for a research associate with interest and expertise in radiomics, deep learning and machine learning in the fields of precision medicine, oncology, cardiovascular disease, nephrology, radiation oncology, ophthalmology, digital pathology, and image guided interventions.
Representative projects within CCIPD include distinguishing recurrent brain tumors from post-radiation changes, planning surgical margins in patients undergoing excision for rectal cancers using MRI, computational pathology approaches for predicting the need of adjuvant chemotherapy for breast and lung cancer patients, amongst many others. The lab works on different patient cohorts, ranging from cancers like lung, breast, rectal, brain, prostate head and neck, to non-oncologic related pathologies like chronic kidney disease, Alzheimers disease, cardiovascular and ophthalmic diseases.
In the past 7 years, the center has rapidly grown, now boasting over 60 members including faculty, staff, graduate and undergraduate students and post-doctoral researchers. The center members have received a number of awards from the NIH, DOD and the VA amounting to over $44M in federal, state and industry funding. Center members have published high impact papers in Lancet Oncology, Clinical Cancer Research, Nature Reviews Clinical Oncology and Nature Reviews Drug Discovery and been awarded nearly 50 patents.
The center offers an intellectually stimulating environment for students and postdocs to develop and apply image-computing solutions to highly translational and clinically relevant problems in oncology, cardiology, nephrology, opthalmology and neurology. Students and postdocs work closely with the clinical collaborators, including radiologists, pathologists, surgeons, and medical, and radiation oncologists. The CWRU campus is located in the heart of Cleveland, and is within a 10 minute walk of 4 nationally and internationally renowned medical centers: University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center, Cleveland Clinic Foundation, MetroHealth Medical Center and Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center. CCIPD researchers also work closely with a number of cancer diagnostic, medical imaging and pharmaceutical companies on industry sponsored research projects.
The research associate will be working on development of image analytic/machine learning algorithms for clinical applications. Applicants must have a Ph.D. degree and have demonstrated excellent qualifications in research. A successful candidate would have a PhD degree in in Biomedical Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering or related field and a demonstrable record of accomplishment in medical image analysis, machine learning, computer vision, and image registration and feature extraction. Experience in MATLAB and C++ programming is required.
