Postdoctoral Fellowship in IMAGE-GUIDED RADIATION THERAPY at University of Iowa

Applications are invited for one Postdoctoral Fellow position in
IMAGE-GUIDED RADIATION THERAPY at the Center of Excellence in
Image-guided Radiation Therapy, Department of Radiation Oncology,
University of Iowa. The center is a state-of-the-art radiation oncology
facility where faculty are performing research in 4D imaging, treatment
planning, verification, and treatment delivery.  The center is equipped
with the latest imaging and treatment equipment:  4 linear accelerators
(with gating and megavoltage cone beam CT), 3T MRI scanner, 4-D PET/CT
scanner, mobile C-arm for fluoroscopy and kV cone beam CT, and infrared
optical image guidance.

The successful candidate will contribute substantially to the
development of new computational tools improving the efficacy of 4-D
image-guided radiation therapy, with an emphasis on increasing the
precision of tumor localization and radiation dose delivery by
accounting for respiratory motion during the treatment. This
Postdoctoral Fellowship provides an opportunity to engage in this
emerging multi-disciplinary research area involving imaging, medical
physics, computer algorithm development, and radiation treatment, and to
work in an interdisciplinary team of faculty collaborators from
Radiation Oncology and Electrical & Computer Engineering Departments.
With the formation of an Iowa Institute of Biomedical Imaging in the
near future, the Postdoctoral Fellow will have an opportunity to
interact with a large group of more than 100 medical imaging and image
analysis scholars, postdocs, and graduate students.

The position is for one year in the first instance and has the potential
to be extended for up to three years for suitably qualified candidates
if skills, interest and performance allow. This position is immediately
available and will start at a mutually agreed upon date.  All qualified
candidates are encouraged to apply.

The ideal candidate must be highly motivated and has a strong background
in medical imaging and computational science.  Proven ability to work
independently and experience in Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy
and medical image analysis are considered to be important assets for
this position. The candidate is also expected to be willing to work in a
cross-disciplinary environment.  Strong programming skills in Matlab and
C/C++ are required.  Good communication as well as writing skills is
desirable.  Applicants should hold (or shall obtain within six months of
application) a Ph.D. in Computer Engineering, Medical Imaging or a
related field.

The application must include the following:
1) Cover letter highlighting the candidates suitability for this position;
2) Curriculum vitae;
3) Up to three selected preprints/reprints most relevant to this position;
4) Three letters of reference.

The application should be sent to Dr. Xiaodong Wu at the address below
(email applications only). The position is available until filled.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
