Post-doc position in Czech Republic

http://www.muni.cz/fi/general/employment_offers/2361?lang=en

Institution: Faculty of Informatics at the Masaryk University in Brno

Department: Centre for Biomedical Image Analysis (http://cbia.fi.muni.cz)

Topic: Analysis of multidimensional image data acquired using optical 
microscopy

Deadline for applications: April 30, 2007

Available from: June 1, 2007 (or later)

Duration: 1-3 years

Salary: 1,500 - 2,200 EUR/month

Short description:
The post-doc will be involved in the research of image analysis methods 
suitable for the processing of biomedical image data generated using 
optical microscopy. Typically the image data contain cells that are 
stained with fluorescent dyes. There can be up to 5 dimensions that are 
acquired: time, color (light wavelength) and three spatial. The image data 
is mostly analyzed using our own library written in C++ that contains 
tools for image restoration, registration, segmentation as well as object 
reconstruction. The post-doc will participate on the development of these 
tools. Will to learn basics of molecular biology is needed as frequent 
communication with molecular biologists is assumed. Presently the main 
application is the study of structure and function of human genome.

Assumptions:
Applicants should have, or be about to complete a PhD in Computer Science 
or a closely related discipline and ideally will have a strong background 
in the respective research topics. The willingness and competence to 
contribute to the teaching programme of the Faculty of Informatics is also 
of interest. The applicants should enjoy working in a team and have good 
communication skills. Fluency in English is required.

What to submit:
The application should contain a CV, list of publications, statement of 
research interests and the names and contact information of three 
professional scientists who are familiar with the applicant's work and who 
could provide recommendation letters if needed. Electronic submissions are 
highly encouraged.
