Postdoc in medical image processing at Stony Brook

Contact: gindi at

			Postdoc in
Medical Image Reconstruction and Image Quality in Emission Tomography

(Note: A similar postdoc ad from 2006 has since been filled. We are 
seeking to fill a second position.)

The Medical Image Processing Lab (, which is
affiliated with both the Departments of Radiology and Electrical & 
Computer Engineering at Stony Brook, has a postdoc opening in the 
general area of emission tomography, with an emphasis on SPECT. The work 
would involve two broad areas: fast image  reconstruction algorithms, 
and the effects of noise and model error on reconstructed image quality. 
A strong background in applied math and detection and estimation theory 
  is desirable. Good programming skills, especially in MATLAB, C and C++ 
are necessary, with experience working in a Unix environment a plus. 
The applicant should have demonstrated skills in written and verbal
communication (in English). Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Electrical
Engineering, Computer Science, Physics or a related field. Candidates
with no medical imaging experience but with strong math and programming
skills will be considered.

We are seeking someone to start soon - by mid 2007 - and the position 
carries a minimum two-year commitment. The lab is one of three adjoining 
labs that work on a variety of medical image analysis and processing and 
medical physics projects. The facilities are excellent.

If interested, please email  email a CV (with list of graduate courses 
if possible) and the names of three references to:

Gene Gindi, Associate Professor
      of Radiology and Electrical & Computer Engineering
