JOB DESCRIPTION: Helps design and conduct research within a specified field while receiving advanced training from a designated Principal Investigator to enhance professional skills and research independence needed for pursuit of a career. The specific area of research in which the trainee is mentored is determined by the department and laboratory of the Postdoc. Designs and evaluates experiments. Develops new ideas that promote current research. Prepares and publishes scientific manuscripts under the direction of the Principal Investigator. May be responsible for operation of specific equipment. May teach techniques to others, train, and supervise research staff. Positions are temporary appointments as a research trainee. The initial appointment is for one year, renewal expected if progress is satisfactory and funds are available. Appointments cannot exceed five years.
MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS: A doctoral degree or equivalent (Ph.D., M.D., ScD., D.V.M., DDS etc) in an appropriate field. Excellent scientific writing ability and strong oral communication skills. The ability to work effectively and collegially with colleagues. Additional qualifications as specified by the Principal Investigator.
A post-doctorate fellow position is open in the Laboratory of Translational Research in CT (Tri-CT) in the Department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences, Emory University School of Medicine. The research scope of Tri-CT Lab is to explore new imaging methods and systems that can be translated into clinical applications to save patient lives and/or improve healthcare quality. To be a team member, the knowledge and/or experience in signal and system modeling, simulation and analysis, imaging physics, analytic/statistical image reconstruction, and particularly, machine or deep learning and its applications in low dose CT, is expected. Under the guidance of lab director, the post-doc fellow is expected to conduct research projects and generate data to support publication in scientific journals and submission of research proposals. The research projects to be undertaken by the candidate will aim at addressing the primary challenges imposed by advanced preclinical and clinical applications, such as cardiovascular and oncologic imaging, with a focus on the research and development of advanced CT image reconstruction solutions, in which machine or deep learning will play a pivotal role.--78275BR
