Job DescriptionScientist/ Postdoctoral Fellow in Imaging
Join us (Das group) at the University of Houston to work on an array of exciting and novel imaging projects that combine optical physics and engineering. Intended applications for our methods are biomedical imaging but the methods are useful in may areas such as defense/security, materials imaging and geophysics. We welcome applications from candidates with experience in instrumentation, algorithm development or computational methods in novel developments related to x-ray, computed tomography, scatter tomography, photon counting detectors (Medipix, Timepix), ultrasound imaging, elastography, microscopy, computational imaging, optical imaging, PET or SPECT. Image science, psychophysics and new machine techniques are also part of our group's ongoing research. In the next stage our lab will be moving some of the ideas towards preclinical and translational efforts as well. You will play an integral role and lead multiple new projects in our group.
Some of our recent work has focused on x-ray phase contrast imaging and phase retrieval, photon counting detectors (CERN based like Medipix and Timepix), developing forward and inverse models for novel imaging concepts, spectral CT, X-ray spectroscopy, image texture analysis, image science, digital breast tomosynthesis and breast CT. More information can be found by emailing Prof. Mini Das (mdas at uh dot edu) and also from our group website: https://sites.google.com/nsm.uh.edu/ipl/home
For projects involving instrumentation, the candidates must have experience in some of the following: hands on instrumentation development, quick prototyping, visual C++, python.
For computational and analytical projects background in physics based modeling, analytical methods, computational approaches, algorithms, big data, and experience in some of the following: C, C++, Python, Matlab are essential.
Interested candidates should email Prof. Mini Das directly (mdas at uh dot edu) with CV and a brief statement of interest and future goals. PhD in Physics, Optical Sciences, Engineering (Electrical, mechanical, biomedical or computer) is required. We offer flexible start date and competitive salary (based on experience and accomplishments) and benefits.
