Dear Vision List Admin,

Please post the following message about available postdoc positions to the mailing list:

2 Postdoctoral Fellowships are available in Artificial Intelligence / Retinal image analysis and personalized medicine at the University of California, San Diego, Shiley Eye Institute.

 The fellowships require a doctoral degree and are normally awarded for two years.

One fellowship is funded by a NEI Training Grant that requires that fellows be US citizens or permanent residents.

Retinal image analysis/computational ophthalmology/ personalized medicine: 

Independent researcher to utilize deep learning for evaluating retinal images from spectral domain optical coherence tomograph (OCT), OCT angiography and other imaging modalities for clinical decision support, screening, telemedicine and personalized medicine applications. The ideal candidate will have demonstrated research expertise and strong interests in at least one of the following areas for 2-D/3-D medical image analysis: 1) statistical / mathematical / numerical analysis, 2) image processing / computer vision techniques, 3) deep learning for feature detection and/or automated diagnosis 4) high performance computing techniques for image analysis, and 5) telemedicine, digital health or related areas.  Candidates will have the opportunity to work on large longitudinal cohorts of patients with and without retinal diseases including the Diagnostic Innovations in Glaucoma Study (DIGS) and the African Descent and Glaucoma Evaluation Study (ADAGES). Postdoctoral research projects and training can be completed under the multi-disciplinary initiative, “Computational Ophthalmology”, among the Departments of Ophthalmology, Biostatistics, Computer Science & Engineering, at UCSD with several opportunities to strengthen cross-discipline skills. Candidates will have access to several computational / cluster resources including resources available through the San Diego Super Computer Center and visualization infrastructure though the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (Calit2) and NexCAVE facilities.  Highly motivated candidates will also receive training and guidance in writing research grants and work with a multidisciplinary team of UCSD computer scientists, vision scientists, clinical researchers and basic scientists including Linda M Zangwill PhD, Akram Belghith PhD, Armin Schwartzman PhD, Christopher Bowd PhD, Robert N. Weinreb MD, David Kriegman, PhD

Interested candidates should submit 1) a curriculum vitae, 2) a brief statement of research interests and 3) contact information for 3 references to:

Linda M. Zangwill, Ph.D. @ lzangwill at ucsd.edu <mailto:lzangwill at ucsd.edu>
Job Requirements

PhD or an equivalent degree in electrical engineering, computer science, image and signal processing, biomedical engineering, mathematics, statistics or related discipline. Strong computer programming skills (MATLAB, Python, C/C++/Java, MPI/clustercomputing, or R) preferred. Excellent writing skills and history of productivity desirable.

Applications from individuals with disabilities or other underrepresented groups are particularly encouraged. Applications will be accepted until filled.
