Topic: Mathematical Understanding of the Left Ventricle Remodeling after 
Myocardial Infarction using CT & MR Images

Acute myocardial infarction, the term often describe by heart attack, is 
a disease state that occurs when the blood supply to a part of the heart 
is interrupted. The resulting ischemia or oxygen shortage causes damage 
and potential death of heart tissue. The aim of this project is to 
understand the long term natural remodeling process of the LV towards 
compensating the inability of dead-tissues to contract. To this end, the 
patient will be imaged regularly using non-invasive means, and 
information on the the heart cycle (volume,...) will be extracted. The 
aim of the post-doc is to determine a time series process which is able 
to explain the long term behavior of the LV in particular as far as the 
ability to contract is concerned in relation with the dead tissues.

Ecole Centrale is one of the top three engineering schools in France 
(Grandes Ecoles).
As a postdoc in Ecole Centrale, the candidate is expected to participate 
in PhD guidance, while there will be several opportunities to work in 
numerous project of medical image analysis and computer vision and 
collaborate with the leading academic and industrial institutions in 
Europe. Technical requirements: PhD in computer science (graduation 
before 15/12/2006) or allied field , preferably with a specialization in 
medical imaging, registration, segmentation, etc.  - Excellent 
mathematical and analytical abilities - Good programming skills in C, 
C++, Matlab

DEADLINE for application: March 01, 2007
Duration & Salary: 12 months (with possible renewal), starting 
01/09/2007 (or later), 30-40,000EY

Potential candidates please contact:  Prof. Nikos Paragios 
(mailto:nikos.paragios@ecp.fr) with a resume and a list of two-three 
referees.
