Postdoc in Shape Theory and Image Reconstruction at KTH Royal Institute of Technology

A postdoctoral position in shape theory and image reconstruction is available at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, based in Stockholm, Sweden.


The position is part of a medical imaging project, where the overall goal is to develop theory and algorithms for image reconstruction applicable to X-ray based medical imaging with under-sampled or highly noisy data.

The project involves the following imaging modalities:

  • 3D spiral/helical CT
  • 4D SPECT/CT and PET/CT
  • C-arm 3D-CT
  • Spectral CT

Job description

The successful candidate will design and implement numerical algorithms for joint non-rigid image registration and reconstruction for tomographic inverse problems.

Specific focus is on:

  1. Deformable templates using diffeomorphisms
  2. Spatio-temporal imaging

Algorithms will be implemented as software components integrated with ODL, a Python-based software framework for numerical functional analysis.

Required qualifications

  • PhD in mathematics
  • Strong background in differential geometry and functional analysis
  • Experience in scientific computing, preferably using Python or C/C++
  • Experience in image processing and reconstruction (desired)
  • Experience in optimization on Riemannian manifolds (desired)

How to apply

Prepare the following information and apply online:

  • Cover letter (1 page)
  • Curriculum vitae
  • Publication list
  • Recommendation letters or contact information of 2–3 referees

The application deadline is October 3, 2016.
