Job opening in Medical Imaging at Microsoft Research Cambridge


Contact: cambhr@microsoft.com

Microsoft Research established its laboratory (MSRC) in Cambridge http://research.microsoft.com/cambridge/ 10 years ago. It is now one of the leading computer science research laboratories in Europe, with over 100 researchers from around the world, across various disciplines. The interests of the laboratory span a number of areas in Computer Science, including Machine Intelligence and Perception (MLP) http://research.microsoft.com/mlp/ and, in particular, Computer Vision http://research.microsoft.com/vision/cambridge/. Now the scope is being expanded by the establishment of a Medical Imaging Group within MLP. It is intended that this will leverage existing MSRC expertise in Computer Vision and Machine Learning to make advances in the visualisation and analysis of diagnostic medical image data. It is also intended that the group will feed research innovation into the substantial software development programme underway in Microsoft Corporation's Health Solutions Group (HSG) htt
 p://www.microsoft.com/hsg/ .

MSRC is now looking to recruit a research scientist with an established track record of research in medical imaging, to help build the new research group. Candidates with various levels of experience, from a few years' post-doctorate upwards, are encouraged to apply. The research programme will aim to make advances in the visualisation and analysis of diagnostic medical image data, including automatic detection and recognition of anomalies, segmentation of multi-dimensional images, registration and 3D visualization. This is an exciting opportunity to influence the development of medical imaging at Microsoft right from the beginning of the programme.

The post will start on a mutually agreed date on or after July 1st 2008. In the first instance, please email MSRC Human Resources (cambhr@microsoft.com) with "Imaging" on the subject line, and attach your CV, and a brief statement explaining your interest in this position. The closing date for applications is March 31st 2008. Microsoft Research is an equal opportunities employer.
