IMT Institute for Advanced Studies Lucca invites applications for a Post-Doctoral Fellowship in the area of pattern recognition and image analysis. Candidates with a Ph.D. in electrical or biomedical engineering, computer science, imaging, or equivalent are preferable. We are specifically interested in the development of new data-driven computational methods for morphometric assessment of Magnetic Resonance images of the brain. The fellow will have access to a large collection of datasets modeling human disease of the Central Nervous System. The ideal candidate should have a strong mathematical and computational background, experience in pattern recognition and machine learning and biomedical image analysis and excellent programming skills. Previous experience with brain image processing (e.g., non-linear registration, VBM, TBM) and suites (e.g., FSL, FreeSurfer) will be considered a plus but is not required. Candidates must have an excellent track record of high-impact international publications and an excellent level of both written and spoken English is mandatory. The fellow will be a member of PRIAn - Pattern Recognition and Image Analysis Research Unit (http://prian.lab.imtlucca.it/), and is expected to focus mostly on research and mentoring of Ph.D. students. Limited participation in teaching of graduate courses may be requested. We offer competitive salary packages and several benefits.
