Research Associate Vacancy in Mammographic Modelling and Image Analysis, UCL


RA - Mammographic Modelling and Image Analysis

The Centre for Medical Image Computing (CMIC) at University College
London is seeking to appoint a Research Associate or Senior Research
Associate in mammographic modelling and analysis.

The appointments will be made on the HERA pay scale at grade 7,
26,666 to 32,796 (this is a three year post) or Grade 8, 33,779 to
40,335 (this is a two year post) plus 2,572 London Allownace

CMIC is a world class Centre combining excellence in medical imaging
sciences with innovative computational methodology. We have recently
obtained grants from the EPSRC, to develop a model-based approach to
comparing breast images, from the Technology Strategy Board, to work
with Dexela Ltd in the development of digital breast tomosynthesis and
from the EU, to develop a multimodal breast cancer imaging

The posts will involve developing computational methods for comparing
pairs of x-ray mammograms, or digital breast tomograms. Radiologists
make extensive use of such comparisons when searching for signs of
cancer in screening mammograms. The task is intrinsically difficult,
and we plan to take a comprehensive model-based approach to making
meaningful comparisons. We aim to develop methods, which are generic
and capable of broad application to other fields in medical image
analysis where organs are imaged whilst undergoing mechanical

The positions would suit an individual with a strong background in
maths, physics or engineering and a PhD in structural analysis or
computational vision.

UCL is centrally located adjacent to London's West End and the
excellent transport links of Euston, St. Pancras and Kings Cross
Railway Stations.
