The eils labs, a join research group between the division Theoretical Bioinformatics at the German Cancer Research Center (dkfz) and the department Bioinformatics and Functional Genomics at the Institute of Pharmacy and Molecular Biotechnology (IPMB) at Heidelberg University is searching for a postdoc in medical image analysis.
We are seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher to develop methods and software programs for non-rigid registration of high-resolution histological images of the brain. Accurate image registration is important for reconstruction of fibre tracts and establishing a high-resolution 3D model of the brain. Main challenges of image registration are the huge amount of multi-modal image data at different resolutions as well as the special characteristics of histological brain images comprising geometric distortions, artefacts, and intensity inhomogeneities. The focus of the work is on spline-based registration methods. The work is carried out in close cooperation with scientists at the Research Center Jülich (FZJ).
Application deadline: March 15, 2017
