Postdoctoral Positions, Center for Imaging Science, The Johns Hopkins University

The Vision Dynamics and Learning Laboratory at Johns Hopkins University has two immediate post-doc openings in computer vision and machine learning with applications to biomedicine. In particular, we are looking for highly talented individuals to develop advanced computer vision and machine learning algorithms for cell classification and counting. The project will involve collaboration with a large team with varied expertise in microscopic imaging, microbfuildics, chemistry, public health and medicine. The successful candidate should have a Ph.D. in a relevant quantitative field (e.g. Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Biomedical Engineering, Applied Math and Statistics), a strong publication record in computer vision, machine learning, and biomedical image analysis. Remuneration is competitive and commensurate with skills and track record. The appointment will be for one year initially (renewable) starting November 2015 or as soon as possible thereafter. Applications should be sent by email to Prof. Rene Vidal at rvidal@cis.jhu.edu, and must include a brief letter of application, a CV including a list of publications, and names and email addresses of 2-3 referees. Review of applications will begin immediately.


Postdoctoral researcher or research scientist

The Center for Imaging Science (Dr. Siamak Ardekani) at the Johns Hopkins University is seeking a postdoctoral researcher or research scientist to apply in vivo and ex vivo MR imaging in preclinical study of cardiovascular disease.

The successful candidate must be highly motivated and have a university degree (Ph.D. for postdoctoral fellow) in physical science, Biomedical Engineering, or related fields. The candidate will be involved in a multi-modality cardiac MR imaging of murine model to investigate heart failure. The candidate should have knowledge of preclinical MRI (ideally in Bruker environment). Prior knowledge of pulse sequence programming is a plus. Experience with ex vivo characterization of tissue using MRI is desirable. Responsibilities include acquisition of image data on mice, optimizing MR acquisition and reconstruction techniques, and contributions to publications and grants.

This research activity utilizes high-field preclinical MR resources available at F.M. Kirby Research center (http://mri.kennedykrieger.org/preclinical/facilities.html) and/or Johns Hopkins University (http://www.mri.jhu.edu/div_mri_res/facilities.htm).

This position is available immediately and is for one year with the possibility of extension. Excellent oral and written communication skills in English are required. To apply for this position, please send your application material, including detailed CV, research interest, and name and contact information for two to three references to Dr. Siamak Ardekani via email at sardekani@jhu.edu (subject: preclinical MRI position).
