Postdoctoral position in machine learning

Postdoctoral position in machine learning-based image analysis

Opening date: February 2021
Closing date: open until the positions are filled.

The Gordon Center for Medical Imaging (GCMI) in the Department of Radiology at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and Harvard Medical School (HMS) in Boston, MA has an immediate opening at the postdoctoral level to work on research projects related to PET and MR image analysis, image restoration and image reconstruction.

The projects are funded by NIH, aiming to utilize machine learning-based image analysis to improve the diagnosis and progression tracking for Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and Neuroendocrine tumor (NET). The projects are based on cooperation with Harvard Aging Brain Study (HABS) and MD Anderson Cancer Center (MDACC).

Applicants should have earned a Ph.D. in engineering, statistics/mathematics, physics, neuroscience, or a related field. Strong analytical, quantitative and programming skills as well as proficiency in machine learning are essential. Prior experience with PET/MR image analysis is not required. The successful candidate will have joint appointments at MGH and HMS.

The Department of Radiology offers extensive core research facilities, including a new digital time-of-flight PET/CT scanner, brain and whole body PET/MRI scanners, and small animal PET/SPECT/CT systems. Studies on these imaging systems are supported by the MGH Gordon PET Core’s fully equipped blood/radiometabolite processing laboratory, on-site cyclotron, dedicated research radiochemistry laboratories, and a world class GMP radiopharmacy. The Gordon Center maintains a large-scale computing facility for image analysis, network training, tomographic reconstruction, Monte Carlo simulation, and other computationally intensive research applications. The successful applicant can interact collaboratively with a large (140+), growing research group in diverse areas of imaging technology and applications.

The position is available as of February 2021 and the start date is flexible. If interested, please send your curriculum vitae, a cover letter describing your background and research interests, and contact information of three references to Dr. Kuang Gong ().

MGH is an equal opportunity employer.
