Let’s shape the future - University of Antwerp
The University of Antwerp is a dynamic, forward-thinking, European university. We offer an innovative academic education to more than 20 000 students, conduct pioneering scientific research and play an important service-providing role in society. We are one of the largest, most international and most innovative employers in the region. With more than 6000 employees from 100 different countries, we are helping to build tomorrow's world every day. Through top scientific research, we push back boundaries and set a course for the future – a future that you can help to shape.
Imec-Visionlab, an imec (https://www.imec-int.com/en/home ) research group at the University of Antwerp (http://visielab.uantwerpen.be/ ), has an open position for a Postdoc to work on developing advanced image reconstruction methods for X-ray phase contrast tomography. Tomography is an image reconstruction technique that leans strongly on large-scale numerical mathematics, particularly linear algebra. It has a wide range of applications in medicine (CT-scans), industry (nondestructive testing, inspection and quality control) and science (3D characterization and material analysis).
In this project we want to develop improved image reconstruction methods for scanning problems where the object changes over time.
Qualifications: Applicants are expected to have a PhD in Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science, or Engineering. Excellent communication skills in English are key, as well as expertise in tomographic image reconstruction and deep learning.
Labs involved: The Vision Lab, an imec (https://www.imec-int.com/en/home ) research group of the physics department at the University of Antwerp. The Vision Lab has unique expertise in the development of algorithms for reconstruction, processing and analysis of tomographic imaging data. The working environment is strongly interdisciplinary, combining techniques and insights from Physics, Mathematics and Computer Science. The group has a broad range of national and international collaborations with both academic and industrial partners. Recent publications on tomography can be found on http://visielab.uantwerpen.be/research/tomography .
An exciting research trajectory of 2 years (with possibility for extension of 1 more year). Multidisciplinary research: cooperation with strong academic research groups and industrial partners. A world-class research environment with state-of-the-art instrumentation and a brand-new customized UniTOM XL microCT system (FlexCT). A competitive postdoc salary with benefits.
