Position Openings

Postdoctoral Scholar

A Postdoctoral Scholar position is available for a highly motivated individual who wants to develop or advance his/her academic career in the fields of medical imaging and machine learning. Our laboratory in Medical Imaging Research Center at Illinois Institute of Technology focuses on research on machine learning in medical imaging and computer-aided diagnosis of lesions in medical images and the development of techniques of machine learning, medical image processing and analysis, pattern recognition, and computer vision. Our center is one of the leaders in machine learning in medical imaging.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. in computer science/engineering, biomedical engineering, or a similar discipline. The successful candidate must have substantial experience in machine learning, 2D and 3D pattern recognition, computer vision, and image analysis in medical imaging. The successful candidate must also have several to a dozen of first-author high-quality journal publications (with decent impact factors) in relevant fields, strong problem-solving and excellent collaboration skills as well as excellent programming skills in the computer languages (C/C++, Perl, and Matlab) on platforms (Linux, Mac OS, and Windows).

Interested candidates are encouraged to send their CV and a brief statement of research interests to: ksuzuki [at] iit.edu.

Available Positions

To apply for positions in our laboratory, please email ksuzuki [at] iit.edu with your resume or CV, a short description of your research interests, and names/contact information for references (if available).

Computer Scientist

If you have an M.S., Ph.D., or equivalent degree in computer science/engineering, biomedical engineering, or a similar discipline, there may be a possibility for a Computer Scientist position.  This position may be suited for a person who wants to develop his/her academic career in the field of medical imaging sciences/engineering.  Required skills for this position are excellent programming skills in the computer languages (C/C++, Perl, and Matlab) and strong problem-solving skills.  Substantial experience in 2D and 3D pattern recognition, computer vision, image analysis, and/or machine learning is desired.  Research projects will involve the development of new algorithms/methods for computer-aided diagnosis or machine learning.

Research Assistant or Research Technician

If you are currently a graduate/undergraduate student at Illinois Institute of Technology, there may be a possibility for a Research Assistant or Research Technician position.  If you are seeking research experience in a medicine-related field, for example, if you have an M.D. degree and are looking for your residency, you may work on a research project in our laboratory as Research Technician or Research Professional to develop your career.  There are a variety of jobs in this category: (1) collection of diagnostic images (CT, digital radiography, MRI, etc.), (2) selection of diagnostic imaging cases, (3) reconciliation of diagnostic images with radiology reports and/or pathology reports, (4) analysis of computer output on clinical cases, and so on.

Visiting Scholar, Visiting Postdoctoral Scholar, or Visiting Professors

We accept a Visiting Scholar in a relevant research area from a university outside of the U.S., but will not accept a short-term (< six months) visitor.  If you have a Ph.D., M.D., or equivalent degree in a relevant area, you may be qualified for a Visiting Scholar position.  If you already have experience for several years after earning of your Ph.D. or M.D. degree, you may be qualified for a Visiting Assistant/Associate/Full Professor position.
