Two year postdoctoral position in medical image analysis
Translational Imaging Group, University College London, United Kingdom.

The Translational Imaging Group (TIG) at University College London (UCL) is seeking to fill a postdoctoral position in medical image analysis within an exciting EU / ERC project. 

The postdoctoral researcher will be involved in the development of algorithms to recover the 3D structure of histological slices. The researcher will work in close collaboration with researchers at the UCL Brain Bank, who are carrying out the histological processing of the (brain) specimens.

These tasks are part of an EU/ERC project with the title "Building Next-Generation Computational Tools for High Resolution Neuroimaging Studies", awarded to Dr. J. Eugenio Iglesias. The project ultimately aims for creating an ultra-high resolution probabilistic atlas of the whole human brain using ex vivo data, as well as companion image analysis tools that apply the atlas to the automated segmentation of in vivo MRI scans. 

Applicant should have:

- A Ph.D. degree in (bio)medical image analysis or a related area (e.g., computer vision). 
- Strong mathematical and problem solving abilities.
- Strong programming skills.
- An established publication track record.
- Ideally, experience with analysis of histology data and / or image registration.

The postdoctoral researcher would be hired at grade 7 of the UCL salary scale ( We are looking for fill this position as soon as possible, but there is some flexibility with the dates. The duration of the contract would be two years, with possibility of further extension.
