Postdoctoral researchers or research assistant professors in biomedical image analysis and machine/deep learning at CWRU

We are seeking multiple researchers to work on exciting biomedical imaging projects, which will use advanced image processing and state-of-the-art machine/deep learning. Research funding comes from new NIH grants to map the vagus nerve from the brainstem to target organs and to predict cardiovascular risk. We are seeking innovative researchers for these projects within CWRU’s Center of Computational Imaging and Personalized Diagnostics (CCIPD). Participating faculty on the project include Dr. David Wilson (BME), Dr. Shuo Li (Computer and Data Science), and Dr. Satish Viswanath (BME).  
The goal of the unique human vagus nerve project is to map nerve bundles over the 50‑cm length of the vagus using whole-body MRI, micro-CT, nano-CT, and 3D-MUSE microscopy. A press release on this grand challenge is here. This project will create Penta-bytes of data to analyze, creating a need for algorithms, visualization, and coding. The cardiovascular project will use CT calcium score images acquired in the one-of-a-kind, free program offered by University Hospitals of Cleveland, providing a database of >80,000 medical images. We will use AI to predict those patients who are at the most risk of having a future heart attack to enable personalized medicine.
Successful applicants will have an interest in biomedical imaging and quantitative image analysis including machine/deep learning approaches. Software coding experience is a big plus! Please contact us for more information at To apply, persons should send an email stating why they should be selected with a resume or curriculum vitae. Be prepared for a reference request.
