PhD position or post-doc in Learning Nonrigid Registration of Images

The Computer-Aided Diagnosis and the Image Registration groups of the
Image Sciences Institute are looking for a

PhD student or postdoctoral researcher

for the project "Learning Nonrigid Registration of Images".

The Image Sciences Institute is one the largest medical imaging
research institutes in Europe and is housed in the University Medical
Center Utrecht, the Netherlands. More information can be found on our
web site

We closely collaborate with radiologists. In this particular project,
the clinical focus is on registration of chest CT scans. The project
is about using supervised techniques to steer the non-rigid
registration (elastic deformation) of medical images so that they line
up correctly. This is a computationally hard problem and by deriving
models from correct registrations we hope to speed up and improve this
process. More information about the project and the conditions for the
job, the requirements and how to apply can be found on
