Multiple Research Scientist and Postdoctoral Positions in Computer Aided Diagnosis Department of Biomedical Engineering, Texas A&M University, College Station-Texas
The Laboratory for Optical Diagnosis and Imaging (http://biomed.tamu.edu/LODI) in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Texas A&M University invites applications for multiple research scientist and postdoctoral positions in the area of computer aided diagnosis (CAD) system development. Ideal candidates should have substantial experience in 2D and 3D pattern recognition, computer vision, image analysis, and machine learning. Experience in both deep learning and medical imaging analysis is highly desirable. Successful applicants will join a dynamic, multidisciplinary and international team focused on developing and clinically validating endoscopy imaging based CAD tools for automated in-situ cancer detection. Excellent opportunities exist for collaborating closely with researchers and clinicians at various academic and clinical institutions, including UT Health Science Center, UT Southwestern, TAMU School of Dentistry, UT Dallas, Hamad Medical Corporation (Doha, Qatar), Universidad Autónoma de San Luis Potosí (San Luis Potosí, Mexico), Pontificia Universidad Católica del Peru (Lima, Peru), and University of Sao Paulo (Sao Paulo, Brazil).
Responsibilities include some or all of the following:
- Programming of medical image segmentation, feature extraction, and pattern classification algorithms for fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy (FLIM) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) clinical data.
- Integrating and/or correlating FLIM and OCT data with pathology and clinical data.
- Developing image analysis algorithms and CAD systems for FLIM and/or OCT imaging based automated in-situ cancer detection.
- Embedding the developed image analysis algorithms and CAD systems within FLIM and/or OCT endoscopic instrumentation.
- Designing prospective clinical studies for validating the CAD systems.
- Coordinating multi-center clinical studies involving clinical centers both in the U.S. and abroad.
- Taking the lead on preparing scientific conference and journal publications.
Additional exciting opportunities include:
- Working closely with the FDA to develop a plan for filing 510(k) applications of the CAD systems for specific cancer detection clinical applications.
- Working closely with the Texas A&M Technology Commercialization Office to develop a plan for protecting and/or securing intellectual property relevant for the commercialization of these CAD tools.
- Applying for research funding as co-investigator or principal investigator.
- Have a doctoral degree in computer science, computer engineering, or equivalent.
- Have strong background in applied mathematics and statistics, and extensive experience in algorithm development and computer programming.
- Have excellent written and oral communication skills.
- Being self-motivated, independent, driven, responsible and a true team player.
- Full time position (40 hours/week)
- Temporary 1-year position, with intention to extend upon performance evaluation.
- For additional information, please contact Dr. Javier A. Jo (Email: firstname.lastname@example.org)
