Research Opportunities: Brain Imaging
Location: UC San Diego
Position: Postdoctoral Scholar
Starting Date: As soon as the hiring process is complete
The Calit2 Center of GRAVITY (Graphics, Visualization and Imaging Technology) at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) invites applications for a Postdoctoral Researcher in the general area of biomedical visualization. This collaborative research project is aimed at the development of new visualization algorithms and tools, enabling interactive visual analysis of massive biomedical data sets. The position provides a unique opportunity to gain experience in various aspects of advanced interdisciplinary research. The postdoctoral researcher will closely collaborate with researchers from the Visualization and Interactive Systems Group (VIS) and the Transdisciplinary Imaging Genetics Center (TIGC) at the University of California, San Diego (UCI). Of particular interest is the development of new Visual Analytics paradigms for the rapid visual analysis and correlation of massive brain imaging and genetics datasets.
The position requires a Ph.D. in computer science, biomedical engineering or related field, and a demonstrated ability to work with an interdisciplinary research team. We seek a self-starter who can quickly grasp fundamental elements of technical problems and provide creative solutions while working with a team of graduate students. The candidate should have strong expertise in scientific visualization algorithms and techniques, parallel computing and rendering as well as a strong working knowledge of C/C++, Unix (Linux) and OpenGL. Good organization, communication, and writing skills are essential.
The initial appointment will be for a one-year period, with the possibility of renewal depending on performance and availability of funding.
