Position: Research Assistant Image Analysis for Studying Radiotherapy Induced Lung Damage
Institution: University College London
Department: Department of Medical Physics & Biomedical Engineering
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: Our project on Radiation Induced Lung Damage (RILD) has funding for a research assistant to work for a short-term 4-month placement. The main focus of this placement will be to develop and evaluate an automated method of segmenting the ‘chest wall’ in CT scans. This will be done in close collaboration with others working on the project, in particular the research associate and clinical fellow currently employed on the project. The placement may also involve contributing to some of the other research activities being undertaken by the project and the RTIC group, in particular integrating the image processing pipelines with our ‘data analytics’ platform to enable fully automated and streamlined processing of large datasets
Requirements: Candidates must have at least Upper Second honours degree (or equivalent) in Computer Science, Engineering, Physics, Mathematics or a related subject. Practical experience of algorithm and software development for medical image analysis, digital image processing and/or computer vision. Strong programming and software development abilities using Python and/or C++ and/or MATLAB. Experience of working in a multi-disciplinary collaborative team with clinicians, medical physicists, and computer scientists is desirable
