POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCHER- DEEP LEARNING AUTOMATED DOMINANT INTRA PROSTATIC LESIONS FOR IMAGE GUIDED RADIOTHERAPY
Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center
One to two openings are now available for a research appointment in the Department of Medical Physics at the postdoctoral level for individuals interested in medical image analysis research. The two-year research projects will focus on the development of advance deep learning-based analysis of multi-parametric MRI images for automated detection and volumetric segmentation of dominant prostatic lesions for aiding in real-time MR guided radiation therapy on the new MRI guided linear accelerator (MR-LINAC) systems. The project entails development of deep learning algorithms for detecting and classifying domain index lesion, volumetric segmentation, and tracking of whole prostate gland and the dominant lesion for real time guidance. This project involves working with multi-disciplinary scientists including computer scientists, MRI physicists, radiation oncologists, and radiologists
Successful execution on the project is expected to result in high impact publications, as well as implementation of the software prototypes in to the clinical treatment planning workflow in coordination with our team of developers and physicists. Ideal candidates must have strong programming background (python) with knowledge of machine learning applied to computer vision or medical image analysis. Deep learning knowledge and some image registration/segmentation development experience is highly desirable. Candidates are expected to have excellent written and oral communication skills for writing manuscripts and presenting to multi-disciplinary audiences
The Department of Medical Physics consists of over forty faculty physicists plus support staff working on various physical problems related to the diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center is located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, and is recognized as a world leader in clinical cancer care and research.
Interested candidates should send a resume and list of three references by May 31, 2020 via e-mail, including the project title in the application, to:
