Postdoctoral position in Pattern Recognition, Machine Learning and Computer Vision with applications to Biomedical Imaging - [ Postdoc ]

Workplace: Genova, IIT
Added on: 14/01/2019 - Expires on: 15/06/2019

The Pattern Analysis and Computer Vision Research Line at Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (http://www.iit.it/pavis.html) is looking for a highly motivated post-doc that will carry out research on machine learning, pattern recognition and computer vision methods with particular interest but not limited to biomedical imaging applications.

We are looking for a scientist with a solid background in computer vision and machine learning approaches and methods, to be adapted and customized to biomedical and neuroscientific applications. In particular, the research may focus on the following areas of interest:

  • Analysis of multimodal neuroimaging data (fMRI, DTI, etc.) to characterize neurological and neurodegenerative diseases, with particular interest on functional and structural connectivity, and their fusion;
  • Neuronal network and cell analysis from microscope fluorescence imaging, analysis of neural population spiking activity recorded from multi-electrodes array;
  • Animal behavior from video data and electrophysiological recordings;
  • Medical image analysis with applications to radiomics, possibly integration with genomics and proteomics;
  • Monitoring of elderly people in a protected environment.

Candidates for this position should have a Ph.D. in machine learning, pattern recognition, computer vision or related areas. Research experience and qualification following the above lines will be privileged.

The ideal candidate should be knowledgeable within at least one of the following subjects: deep learning, kernel methods and manifold learning, graph-based learning and spectral analysis. Strong programming skill is required.

Evidence of high quality research on the above specified areas in the form of published papers in top conferences/journals and/or patents is mandatory.       
Experience in the preparation and management of research proposals (EU, US, national) and a few years of postdoc experience, either in academia or industrial lab, will also be duly considered. The scientist is expected to publish his/her research results in leading international journals and conferences. She/he is also expected to contribute to the set-up of new project proposals, participate in funding activities, helping with the supervision of PhD candidates and collaborate with scientists from different disciplines.

Salary will be commensurate to qualification and experience and in line with international standard. The working location is Genova, Italy.
