About Sheffield

Mechanical Engineering has been a major discipline in the University of Sheffield since its foundation in 1905. In the most recent Research Assessment Exercise the Department came second in the country in the league table of Mechanical Engineering departments, and achieved an "Excellent" rating in the last Teaching Quality Assessment. The Department currently has 41 members of academic staff who support the learning and development of an ever-growing undergraduate and postgraduate student body. For more information on the Department please see our web site http://www.shef.ac.uk/mecheng/.

The INSIGNEO Institute for in silico Medicine is an initiative between the Faculty of Engineering and the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Sheffield and the Sheffield Teaching Hospitals Foundation Trust. INSIGNEO will realise the scientific ambition behind the Virtual Physiological Human (VPH), producing a transformational impact on healthcare. INSIGNEO performs cutting edge research in areas of fundamental and applied biomedical modelling, imaging and informatics. It will pursue the research agenda of the VPH initiative; in particular, in the first five years it will focus on the Digital Patient, In Silico Clinical Trials, and Personal Health Forecasting. It will achieve transformational impact on healthcare through multidisciplinary collaboration in strategic areas, which initially will include personalised treatments and independent, active and healthy ageing.

The Computational Imaging and Simulation Technologies in Biomedicine (CISTIB) Group at the University of Sheffield is part of INSIGNEO. CISTIB focuses on algorithmic and applied research in the areas of computational imaging, modeling and simulation. CISTIB is working in different areas of medical image segmentation, statistical shape analysis, pattern recognition and image-based personalized computational electro-mechanics and fluid dynamics, and modeling of virtual interventions with endovascular and cardiac rhythm management devices. The centre hosts academic members from the University of Sheffield as well as research fellows, research associates, PhD Students and scientific software developers forming a cross-disciplinary team of biomedical engineers, computer scientists, electrical engineers, mechanical engineers, physicists, and mathematicians.

The main objective of CISTIB is to contribute to the development of technologies for advanced screening, diagnostics, interventional guidance and therapy planning of cardio- and neurovascular diseases as well as growing activity in the musculo-skeletal system. Converging technologies such as computational imaging, computational physiology and virtual implantation of medical devices are integrated with state of the art multimodal acquisition systems to achieve an enhanced interpretation of human physiology and pathology and supply integrative approaches for in silico medical device customization, optimization and image-based efficacy assessment. Core technologies include spatial and temporal image segmentation, non-rigid image registration, multimodal image fusion, pattern recognition, statistical shape analysis, multi-view geometry, image-based tissue property estimation, tissue deformation quantification, computational geometry, image-based mesh generation, computational fluid dynamics and electro-mechanical simulation.

CISTIB fosters basic and applied research and promotes technology transfer to industry.

August 2007 to sept. 2008: Caltech & Harvard Medical School

The Caltech Center of Excellence in Genomic Science (CEGS) is a newly funded initiative that’s driven to digitize life. Our goal is to understand embryonic development as the execution of a program in our genome. We seek to upload embryonic development into a virtual life form called the Digital Fish through the use of genetics, molecular imaging, and information technology. Our approach called “in toto imaging” is to use confocal/2-photon imaging to image all the cells in developing transgenic zebrafish embryos and special software we are developing called GoFigure to extract complete cell lineages and gene expression patterns.

We are looking for people with strong experience in C++ programming and VTK/ITK to join our GoFigure development team. There are a number of significant image analysis problems we are addressing including: segmenting cells in space, across time, and across cell division; quantitating protein expression patterns and subcellular localization; developing a standard, cell-based, 4-d atlas of embryonic development; and registering molecular data from thousands of different embryos onto this atlas.

There are opportunities at the graduate, post-doc, and staff levels. The successful applicant would join our team at Caltech in Pasadena/LA soon and then move with us to my new lab in the Department of Systems Biology at Harvard Medical School in Boston in summer 2008. To apply, please send a cover letter, CV, and letters of reference to me by email (megason@caltech.edu).
