2 PhD Studentships in Computer Vision (Breast Image Analysis) in the 
Computer Vision and Robotics group.
University of Girona
Girona, Spain

Fixed term appointments for 3 years.
PhD Studentships: Salary of 14500 euros per annum
Starting date: 1st October 2012

We have 2 new exciting positions available within the Computer Vision
and Robotics (VICOROB) Group of the Department of Computer Architecture
and Technology. Detailed information about the research group can be
found at http://vicorob.udg.edu. These research positions are associated
with a new project funded by the European Union which aims to develop
computer vision and image analysis techniques to the evaluation of
medical images. In particular, the interest of the project is the
analysis of novel magnetic resonance (MRI) sequences and 3D ultrasound
(ABUS) breast images for lesion detection, characterisation and follow-up.
This involves research on image acquisition, segmentation and
registration of those modalities in order to detect and assess lesion
changes during time. Further information on the research area of the
project and informal queries can be directed to robert.marti at udg.edu

Applicants for the PhD Studentships will need to have a good honours
degree (or equivalent) in Computer Science, Engineering, Mathematics,
Physics or another related area and be able to demonstrate a strong
mathematical background. A Masters degree (or equivalent) in Computer
Science, Engineering, Mathematics, Physics or another related area is
also essential for this post. High levels of ability in computing and
programming skills (Matlab and C++) are required. Research experience in
image processing, computer vision, or machine learning, and a clear
interest in vision are also desirable. All applicants must be fluent in
spoken and written English.

Applications must include the following:
• A full CV including, University degrees and dates, past and present
posts, publications and the names and addresses of 2 referees preferably
from the University or Institute that awarded the degree.
• Certified copy of the University Degrees or equivalent with records
transcript (English translation)
• Proof of level of competency in English
• A copy of a valid ID document and passport
• A 1 page research statement should be provided indicating what you see
are interesting research issues relating to the above post, why your
expertise is relevant, and what your future research plans are.

Applications should be sent via email to:

Dr. Robert Marti
University of Girona

Email: robert.marti at udg.edu

The closing date for the applications is 15 August 2012.

Valuing diversity and commitment to equality of opportunity
