Post-doctoral Position  Morphological analysis of 3D images in Centre de Morphologie Mathmatique (Ecole des Mines de Paris)

DeadLine: 31/12/2006

Topic : Morphological Image processing for 3D Images obtained by microtomography. Application to granular materials

The Centre de Morphologie Mathmatique (Paris School of Mines, Fontainebleau) offers a two-years research engineer position to a Doctor candidate. The position is open on december 1rst 2006.
It is asked to develop, in connexion with a partner, 3D Morphological algorithms to process images obtained by X ray microtomography. The algorithms will be integrated into an image analysis softwares (namely APHELION). The approach will be based on the following steps : images filtering, 3D multi-scale  segmentation, quantitative morphological analysis (granulometry, connectivity, space distribution), meshing of microstructures, homogenization of physical properties from segmented images  (thermal conductivity).  The developed softwares will be validated, and should satisfy to ergonomy conditions for an industrial use. 

The candidate will show a significant background in image analysis (if possible in materials), and in computer programming (the use of C++ language is compulsory). 

The Centre de Morphologie Mathmatique, ( part of the
School of Mines, one of the most prestigious French school, is looking for a
valuable PhD candidate.

The person will work in Fontainebleau, a name that is famous in the entire
world, a magical name that evokes for some a forest, for others a chateau. a
name which still shines from its royal history. It is a place where life is
pleasant, a place where the expression "quality of life" takes on its full
meaning (for a description, see

As a shuttle is operated everyday from and to Paris, an accommodation in
"the city of lights" can also be considered, in order to make the most out
of the cultural activities of the capital.
