Postdoctoral Fellowship in Medical Image Analysis at University of Copenhagen

A postdoctoral fellowship in medical image analysis is available at DIKU, the Department of Computer Science of University of Copenhagen, Denmark.
The fellowship is part of the project "Computer-Aided Assessment of COPD
from CT Images", a joint initiative of the University of Copenhagen,
Gentofte University Hospital in Copenhagen, and a major pharmaceutical
company. In this project we are developing new techniques to detect,
quantify, and monitor lung disease from CT scans, in connection with the
Danish lung cancer screening trial. The focus lies on the assessment of lung
emphysema which is a main component of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
(COPD, or 'smoker's lung') and a major cause of death and disability

At DIKU, three faculty members are associated with the project and three PhD
students are working within the project on image segmentation, image
registration, and pattern characterization in lung CT images. The postdoctoral
researcher is expected to perform research in close collaboration with the
other project members.

Candidates should have a PhD degree in (medical) image analysis or computer
vision. The position is available from 1 August 2008 but may be filled in
earlier. Appointment will be for a one-year period with the possibility of
extension. Funding for the position is secured for two years.

Application and enclosures must be submitted on the basis of the complete
text of the vacancy available at Application
deadline: 31 March 2008.
