Research Associate in 3D Tomographic Imaging

We are looking for an enthusiastic and strongly motivated researcher to join our group within the Institute for Digital Communications in the School of Engineering. You will work in an EPSRC-funded project on imaging cerebral blood flow based on 3D electrical impedance tomography.

You will have the opportunity to work on a multidisciplinary project. The ultimate goal of the project is to develop a novel method of quantifying cerebral blood flow in the brain using a portable non-invasive electrical impedance tomography technique. The main objective of the project is to explore the rich spectroscopic information of brain tissue and select optimal working frequency for EIT; (2) develop advanced image reconstruction algorithm to improve image resolution; (3) compute 3D velocity field of CBF from series EIT images and reveal the process of cerebral hemodynamics.

You should hold (or be about to receive) a PhD in signal processing, electronics, computer science, or a related numerate discipline. Experience in tomography, inverse problem and/or neuroimaging will be considered a plus. A good track record of international publications demonstrating prior experience is required. You should have good programming skills, a strong mathematical background, and an interest in interdisciplinary research.

This post is full time and fixed term for 16 months, to commence in January 2017 or as soon as possible thereafter.
