Postdoctoral Position
             In signal processing and image analysis for
                        biomedical applications

Posted: August 3, 2006

Description: A postdoctoral research position is open for applicants with strong
background and research experience in biomedical signals and image analysis.
The successful candidates will work on NIH funded multidisciplinary research
projects focused on research and development of advanced optical techniques
and ultrasonically-assist optical methods for in-vivo diagnosis and therapy of
human diseases including vulnerable atherosclerotic plaque and brain tumors.
The projects involve the development of novel fast signal processing, image
analysis, and classification methods with application to fluorescence lifetime
spectroscopy/imaging microscopy; and to ultrasound backscatter microscopy.
Theoretical and computational studies will be combined with experimental
research in our laboratory. This is an opportunity to work in the newly established
Biophotonics Laboratory at the University of California Davis (Department of
Biomedical Engineering) and in collaboration with the NSF Center for
Biophotonics Science and Technology at the UC Davis Medical Campus.

Qualifications: Candidates must have a Ph.D. in electrical engineering,
biomedical engineering, computer science or other relevant discipline with
considerable mathematical and computational experience including signal
processing, non-linear and dynamical systems, and multivariate statistics.
Knowledge of MATLAB and C/C++ programming is essential. The candidate
must have demonstrated a strong background in signal and image processing as
evident from publication of papers in peer-reviewed conferences and journals;
and to work independently and in an interdisciplinary team. Interested applicants
should submit via e-mail a complete curriculum vitae, the contact information for
three references, and a copy of one or two publication from previous research to:
