Skilled and committed employees are a crucial factor in the success of
Linköping University. And we need more of them. Our core expertise comes from
teachers and researchers, but a successful university requires experienced and
motivated employees in many fields. Everyone is important. We need to recruit
many new employees thanks to, among all, an expansion in our research
activity. We need you here. We look forward to receiving your application!
The Department of Health, Medicine and Caring Sciences (HMV) conducts
teaching and research across a wide range of medical disciplines and is noted
for its interdisciplinary profile. The aim of the department's operations is
to provide relevant training against the backdrop of a rapidly evolving
healthcare sector and a society in constant flux. HMV is located both in
Linköping and Norrköping .

We are now looking to appoint a postdoc in the field of Postdoc in
cardiovascular image processing and machine learning formally based at the
Department of Health, Medicine and Caring Sciences
The postdoc in this announcement will focus on collecting of image data and
development of methods that support an efficient and effective analysis of the
data for diagnosis and model building. The emphasis will be the use of high-
resolution time-resolved spectral data of the heart that will be acquired
using a novel photon-counting detector Computer Tomography (PCD-CT). Based
on this data, time-varying data representing the heart anatomy, its dynamics,
the blood flow, and myocardial strain will be obtained.
Responsibilities include development of methods for segmentation and analysis
of PCD-CT data. Publication of the work in scientific journals is also
included in the assignment.
As postdoc, you will principally carry out research. A certain amount of
teaching may be part of your duties, up to a maximum of 20% of working hours.
The position is connected to the Center for Medical Imaging and
Visualization (CMIV, www. liu.se/cmiv). CMIV is an interdisciplinary research
center within Linköping University that conducts focused front-line research
in interdisciplinary projects that provide solutions to tomorrow's clinical
questions. The interdisciplinary cardiovascular imaging research group within
CMIV, conducts technical development and application of advanced magnetic
resonance and computed tomography in the cardiovascular field. The group has
access to 3 research magnetic cameras and 2 computer tomographs, one of which
is a unique photon-counting computer tomograph.
This position is part of a joint collaboration between the two largest
research programs in Sweden, the Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and
Software Program (WASP) and the SciLifeLab and Wallenberg National Program
for Data-Driven Life Science (DDLS), with the ultimate goal of solving
ground-breaking research questions across disciplines. The SciLifeLab and
Wallenberg National Program for Data-Driven Life Science (DDLS) is a 12-year
initiative that focuses on data-driven research, within fields essential for
improving the people´s lives, detecting and treating diseases, protecting
biodiversity and creating sustainability. The programme will train the next
generation of life scientists and create a strong computational and data
science base. The program aims to strengthen national collaborations between
universities, bridge the research communities of life sciences and data
sciences, and create partnerships with industry, healthcare and other national
and international actors. Read more: https: // www. scilifelab.se/data-driven
Within the WASP-DDLS financed project “Huge Complex Diagnostic Imaging Data”,
two postdoc will work jointly on a pipeline for the generation of personalized
models from huge complex imaging data.
The position requires a doctorate or an equivalent degree from a foreign
university. The doctorate shall have been obtained no longer than three years
before the expiration date of the application.
It is considered advantageous if your doctoral degree is no older than three
years at application deadline for this job. If there are special reasons for
having an older doctoral degree – such as taking statutory leave – then these
may be taken into consideration.
You have good knowledge in programming and image processing. Experience in
imaging processing av medical images, and specific cardiovascular computed
tomography images is an advantage. Knowledge in machine learning of medical
images is a plus.
You have good English language skills both in terms of speech and writing, as
we are multilingual within the research group. You have good communication
skills and easy to collaborate with others.
