Title: Postdoctoral Researcher – Interactive Image Segmentation Methods for Radiation Therapy Treatment PlanningPosted: February 16, 2016
Company/Institution: Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center
Location: New York
Department: Medical Physics

Description: The Department of Medical Physics at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center is looking for a full-time, postdoctoral researcher with expertise in computer vision and medical image analysis. The position involves clinical and experimental research in developing advanced image segmentation methods for use by radiation oncologists applied to radiation therapy treatment planning. MSKCC has an active research program to develop imaging applications that can inform and improve radiation oncology treatment decisions. This is a full-time two-year appointment. Selected candidates will have an option to enroll in a two year MSKCC CAMPEP Accredited Residency Program in either Therapeutic Medical Physics or Diagnostic Medical Physics following the completion of the postdoctoral research fellowship. Admission to the residency program is contingent on satisfactory completion of all aspects of postdoctoral research and an appropriate background in advanced physics. The ideal candidate should have expert knowledge of computer vision, pattern recognition and image processing. A strong proficiency in C#/C++, Python, ITK and visualization tools including VTK is highly desirable. Matlab programming and knowledge of machine learning is a plus. The research will focus on developing interactive image segmentation methods for head and neck and lung cancers for use by radiation oncologists. The Department of Medical Physics consists of over forty faculty physicists plus support staff working on various physical problems related to diagnosis and therapy for cancer. Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center is located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, and is recognized as a world leader in clinical cancer care and research.
