The investigation will be carried out in a research team specialized in multi-modality medical imaging.
The research is focused on 3D nano imaging of bone tissue. The data is acquired using a state-of-the-art nano-CT technique, which provides 3D images at a spatial resolution of up to 30nm.
This project will be held in a multidisciplinary and international environment, including partners in complementary fields such as:
- Ultrasound imaging
- Bone research
The successful candidate will develop 3D image analysis methods to quantify bone structures at nano-scale, including the bone cell network and collagen fiber.
- PhD in image processing or related topics
- Background in applied mathematics, physics, signal processing, and scientific computing
- Strong programming skills in MATLAB, C/C++, ITK and VTK
- Interest in instrumentation and biomedical applications
The position is for 1 year, starting in September 2016.
