Postdoctoral Cardiovascular Imaging Researchers

Two  postdoctoral imaging researchers to develop new translational applications in cardiovascular imaging are needed.

Successful applicants will join our team of biomedical engineers, computer scientists, cardiologists, and industrial researchers. The first project will advance CT imaging to include reliable perfusion measurements of myocardial tissue using the latest Philips Healthcare CT imaging technology. This advancement will allow CT to become the only imaging modality providing a “one stop shop” including cardiac function, vascular anatomy, and tissue perfusion. This will be exceedingly important for managing acute patients in a timely, cost effective, and reliable manner. The other project involves optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging of coronary arteries. OCT provides microscopic imaging of the blood vessel wall enabling unique assessment of plaque vulnerability. It also enables assessment of stent tissue coverage, unique information for the 100s of thousands of stent implantations done yearly in the US.

Applicants are expected to have a PhD in engineering, computer science, medical physics or related field and knowledge of medical imaging and image analysis. The emphasis is creation of new image analysis methods using machine learning, registration, spatially regularized parameter estimation, etc. Specific knowledge of OCT, CT, perfusion, and/or cardiac imaging is a plus. A unique aspect of our work will be accurate validation using large animal models of coronary artery disease, providing ample opportunity for publications. We want ambitious candidates who will communicate well with our diverse, dynamic group; aggressively pursue research; and publish.

We will create analysis applications which can be translated to clinical solutions. Our group has a broad base of funding from the Philips Healthcare Global Advanced Imaging Innovation Center at Case Western Reserve University and University Hospitals of Cleveland, Ohio Third Frontier, Cardiovascular Imaging Core Lab, Coulter Foundation, and NIH.

The larger biomedical imaging community at CWRU is outstanding. There are currently 26 tenured and tenure track faculty members in biomedical imaging and plans for growth. Facilities are superb. The educational program is well established and post docs have an opportunity to take classes and participate in seminars such as CWRU’s Imaging Hour.

Applicants should send an email stating why they should be selected, curriculum vitae, and contact information for at least three references to Dr. Wilson, In employment, as in education, Case Western Reserve University is committed to Equal Opportunity and World Class Diversity.
