Job opening in medical image analysis, Siemens, Erlangen, Germany


Research Scientist -- Medical Image Analysis (m/f) 
Siemens AG, Corporate Technology, CT SE SCR 2 

Location: Erlangen, Germany 
Job number: GER48579 
Starting date: 01/06/2007 
Level of activity: full time 
Siemens Corporate Technology, department for Integrated Data Systems (CT SE SCR 2), has immediate openings for research scientists in the areas of computer vision and medical imaging, statistical analysis and estimation, 3D/4D segmentation, tracking and information fusion, pattern recognition, graphical models and applied machine learning. We are participating in the German research project Theseus-Medico. The goal of this 5 year effort is to develop intelligent image search engines for medical images by 

I) Developing and applying innovative and formal concepts for generic image vocabularies, image syntax and semantics 
II) Researching new scalable and hierarchical information representations that generalize across applications 
III) Developing new architectures that support semantic image search and scalable searching solutions. 
In this position you will be conducting leading-edge research and prototyping of medical image search applications. 
Your main tasks will be to develop novel image descriptors and feature selection algorithms that are specific to medical images and to investigate the integration of generative and discriminative models for medical images. You will be working with German research institutes, especially the Fraunhofer-Institut fr Graphische Datenverarbeitung. Additional areas of interest include semantic image parsing, semantic image annotation and semantic image search. 

We will preferably consider candidates holding a Ph.D. in CS, EE or related fields with a strong, proven record in problem solving and research (leading journal and conference publications). 

The candidate should have advanced background of using machine learning techniques for semantic analysis of image data. Furthermore, she/he will have knowledge in image descriptors, generative and discriminative models, and statistical as well as structural and syntactic pattern recognition, preferably in medical imaging. In addition, candidates should have C/C++ or Java proficiency on MS Windows platform. 

fluent in English, German will be appreciated 
Candidates need to demonstrate strong interpersonal skills, be able to work independently on problems, be an effective team player and be willing to accept challenges and responsibility.
