Research Associate in Biomedical Image Analysis - Biomedical Engineering

Research associate in biomedical image analysis

We are seeking a researcher to use advanced image processing and state-of-the-art

machine/deep learning to map the vagus nerve from the brainstem to target organs, creating the first-ever vagus nerve connectome. The goal is to map nerve bundles over the 50cm length of the vagus using whole-body MRI, micro-CT, nano-CT, and 3D-MUSE microscopy. This is a grand challenge requiring creative solutions. The project will create Penta-bytes of data to analyze, creating a need for algorithms, visualization, and coding.

A successful applicant must have a PhD degree in biomedical engineering, computer science, or a similar discipline. The person should have training in biomedical imaging, image analysis, statistics, and machine/deep learning approaches. A successful applicant should have experience in software coding of larger programs, preferably in python.

Please contact us for more information  at To apply, persons should send an email stating why they should be selected with a resume or curriculum vitae. Be prepared for a reference request.
