Ph.D. opening in MR image analysis, SFU, Vancouver


Contact: mfbeg@ensc.sfu.ca

Ph.D. student opening in the School of Engineering/Computing Science, 
Simon Fraser University, Vancouver, Canada.

As part of a three-year Pacific Alzheimer Research Foundation grant to 
quantify structural changes in the brain in Alzheimers disease, the 
Medical Image Analysis Lab at Simon Fraser University 
(http://mial.cs.sfu.ca/) has an opening for a PhD student. This is a 
joint collaboration with Johns Hopkins University, Washington 
University, St. Louis and University of New South Wales. The project 
involves working with MR images (T1, T2, DTI) for processing a large 
database of brain images. The student will be using existing algorithms 
for Computational Anatomy, as well as developing new algorithms for 
segmentation, registration and shape statistics.

Applicants suitable for this project would need to have a good 
background and proficiency in mathematics, signal processing, C++/Matlab 
programming and good communication and organizational skills. Prior 
experience with medical image processing, segmentation, registration, 
shape modeling and familiarity with packages such as ITK/VTK will be 
valuable.

The position is open immediately. Please send a copy of your resume to 
Dr. Faisal Beg (mfbeg@ensc.sfu.ca ,
