Nov 2004: National Institutes of Health Staff Scientist

 Warren G. Magnuson Clinical Center
 National Institutes of Health
 U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
 Staff Scientist
 Medical Image Processing

The Department of Radiology is seeking a Staff Scientist to support our research efforts in image processing (virtual endoscopy, volumetric visualization, segmentation, registration and algorithm development) and computer-aided diagnosis (feature extraction, classification, database development). In particular, advanced skills in image segmentation (level sets, active shape/appearance models, etc.) are sought. The incumbent will work closely with a team of computer scientists and engineers. Applicants with a proven track record as evidenced by peer-reviewed publications on medical applications of image processing and having advanced mathematical and computer skills are encouraged to apply. Demonstrated expertise in C++ and ITK (NLM’s Insight Toolkit) are required. The candidate should have a Ph.D. in Electrical or Biomedical Engineering, Computer Science, Mathematics, Biophysics or Physics. Salary commensurate with experience. Applications should include a CV, brief statement of research interests, and three letters of reference. Applications are due 6 weeks after posting of this announcement. DHHS and NIH are Equal Opportunity Employers.

Oct 2004: National Institutes of Health Postdoc

Post-doctoral Fellowship
Medical Image Processing
Department of Radiology
National Institutes of Health

A Post-doctoral fellowship is available in three-dimensional medical imaging. Specific interest areas are image processing (virtual endoscopy, volumetric visualization, image segmentation, registration, fusion, and algorithm development) and computer-aided diagnosis (feature extraction, classification, and databases). Fellows have access to state-of-the-art whole body MRI, 16-row detector CT and advanced graphics workstations (PC and Beowulf cluster). Candidates must have or soon expect to receive doctorates in applied mathematics or computer science. Applicants with a proven track record as evidenced by peer-reviewed publications on image processing and having strong software development and C++ skills are encouraged to apply. Applications should include a CV and a brief statement of research interests. NIH is an equal opportunity employer. If a US work permit is not available, then the only visa the NIH can provide for this position is a J visa.

June 2004: Computer Vision Research Position

Computer Vision Research Positions at GE Global Research
Visualization and Computer Vision Lab

We are seeking highly qualified candidates to innovate and develop computer vision technology for commercial and government applications. We are particularly interested in recruiting candidates with expertise in one of the following areas:

  • Machine Learning - applying semantic knowledge to practical vision problems
  • Deformable Registration / Deformable Modeling
  • Segmentation
  • Object Detection and Tracking

The Visualization & Computer Vision Lab at GE Global Research in Niskayuna, NY conducts basic and applied research in computer vision and closely related areas. With 30 Staff Researchers (most holding a PhD) the lab develops advanced technologies for GE businesses, including GE Security, GE Healthcare, GE Aircraft Engines, GE Power Systems and NBC Universal; Lockheed Martin; and US Government agencies including NIH, DARPA, FBI, AFRL and NIMA. Areas of active research include image segmentation, deformable registration, perceptual organization, texture classification, object detection, event recognition, tracking, camera calibration, optical metrology, video content extraction, change detection, and superresolution.

We are active users and contributors to ITK and VXL; experience with either of these toolkits is desired. Strong C++ skills along with a superior ability to work in a team environment are essential qualities for successful candidates.

Interested? Please contact Jim Miller at `millerjv at`
