June 2004: National Institutes of Health Postdoc

Post-doctoral Fellowship
Medical Image Processing
Department of Radiology
National Institutes of Health

A Post-doctoral fellowship is available in three-dimensional medical imaging. Specific interest areas are image processing (virtual endoscopy, volumetric visualization, image segmentation, registration, fusion, and algorithm development) and computer-aided diagnosis (feature extraction, classification, and databases). Fellows have access to state-of-the-art whole body MRI, 16-row detector CT and advanced graphics workstations (PC and Beowulf cluster). Candidates must have or soon expect to receive doctorates in applied mathematics or computer science. Applicants with a proven track record as evidenced by peer-reviewed publications on scientific visualization or image processing and having strong software development and C++ skills are encouraged to apply. Initial appointment is for one year and is renewable thereafter. Applications should include a CV and a brief statement of research interests. NIH is an equal opportunity employer. If a US work permit is not available, then the only visa the NIH can provide for this position is a J visa.

June 2004: Computer Vision Research Position

Computer Vision Research Positions at GE Global Research
Visualization and Computer Vision Lab

We are seeking highly qualified candidates to innovate and develop computer vision technology for commercial and government applications. We are particularly interested in recruiting candidates with expertise in one of the following areas:

  • Machine Learning - applying semantic knowledge to practical vision problems
  • Deformable Registration / Deformable Modeling
  • Segmentation
  • Object Detection and Tracking

The Visualization & Computer Vision Lab at GE Global Research in Niskayuna, NY conducts basic and applied research in computer vision and closely related areas. With 30 Staff Researchers (most holding a PhD) the lab develops advanced technologies for GE businesses, including GE Security, GE Healthcare, GE Aircraft Engines, GE Power Systems and NBC Universal; Lockheed Martin; and US Government agencies including NIH, DARPA, FBI, AFRL and NIMA. Areas of active research include image segmentation, deformable registration, perceptual organization, texture classification, object detection, event recognition, tracking, camera calibration, optical metrology, video content extraction, change detection, and superresolution.

We are active users and contributors to ITK and VXL; experience with either of these toolkits is desired. Strong C++ skills along with a superior ability to work in a team environment are essential qualities for successful candidates.
