Associate professorship "Biomedical Image Analysis" at Eindhoven University of Technology

Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) has the following unique vacancy:

Associate professor "Biomedical Image Analysis" (V50.086)

at the group Biomedical Image Analysis, Department of Biomedical 
Engineering, leading to a tenure position after qualification.

The group Biomedical Image Analysis (head prof. Bart M. ter Haar Romeny, 
PhD) is a large research group in the Masters track Biomedical Imaging 
and Informatics: The group conducts research, 
development and teaching of new methods for biomedical image analysis in 
an inspiring, high quality and international environment. A longstanding 
collaboration is established with Philips Medical Systems in Best, and 
the Maastricht University Hospital. The research and educational tasks 
focus on the area of biomedical image analysis. The group consist of 5 
strongly collaborating subsections: a) fundamental research to develop 
novel models and effective algorithms for quantitative analysis of 
multi-dimensional and multi-valued images, b) advanced visualization and 
analysis of DTI images, c) cardio-vascular image analysis, d) 
neuro-surgical navigation, e) computer-aided diagnosis (in collaboration 
with Philips)..

Tasks: The associate professor will be leading the fundamental section 
of the group. Emphasis will be on the development of robust and 
mathematically well founded image processing and computer vision 
theories and applications, among others to multispectral and 
tensor-valued images. The research should aim at ground-breaking 
international level.

It is expected that the associate professor develops his own focus of 
fundamental computer vision theory, fitting in the biological 
inspiration by the visual system exploited in the other subgroups. He / 
she will assist the other research areas of the group with mathematical 
support and infrastructure, and makes a coherent link between 
fundamental algorithms design and applications. The algorithms have 
finally to be applied in the areas of (bio-) medical computer-aided 
diagnosis and 3D visualization. The algorithms developed should be 
problem driven. As such, a strong collaboration is expected with all 
other sections in the BMIA group (this will occur in a natural way), in 
the BME department and with our medical, industrial and international 

Given the multi-disciplinary character of the research and the education 
it is a prerequisite that the associate professor is able to operate on 
a broad scientific terrain and is capable to communicate well with 
colleague researchers from technological, industrial, mathematical and 
pre-clinical/life sciences disciplines. The mathematical approach of the 
research requires also knowledge of a broad spectrum of mathematical 

We offer:

? A challenging and rewarding job in a dynamic and ambitious group and 
university, with a full-time contract for four years, which may be 
extended in a tenure track, after proven qualification;

? Gross monthly salaries are in accordance with the Collective Labour 
Agreement of the Dutch Universities (CAO NU) and are at least ? 4337 per 
month (scale 13).

? Salary is based on knowledge and experience

? There is an attractive package of fringe benefits, including excellent 
work facilities, child care and sport facilities.
