The Vision Lab, an fun and exciting research group at the University of Antwerp (http://visielab.uantwerpen.be/ ), has an open position for a PhD student to work on developing innovative image reconstruction methods for X-ray Computed Tomography (CT). Tomography is an image reconstruction technique that leans strongly on large-scale numerical mathematics, particularly linear algebra. It has a wide range of applications in medicine (CT-scans), industry (nondestructive testing) and science (e.g., 3D imaging of nanomaterials). In this project, new methods will be developed that combines real-time dual energy radiography with 3D morphed CT reconstructions.
The Vision Lab has unique expertise in the development of algorithms for reconstruction, processing and analysis of imaging data. Application domains are X-ray CT, MRI, and electron Imaging. The working environment is strongly interdisciplinary, combining techniques and insights from Physics, Mathematics and Computer Science. The group has a broad range of national and international collaborations with both academic and industrial partners. Recent Vision Lab publications on tomography can be found on http://visielab.uantwerpen.be/research/tomography .
You have a M.Sc. degree іn thе field οf Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics, or Engineering. You love interdisciplinary science, and want nothing more than advancing the field of dynamic X-ray CT reconstruction and processing with your skills, creativity and novel solutions. You have a good sense of humor and really like programming to put your findings into practice. You also want to tell the world about your findings with sparkling presentations.
Start date: as soon as possible. Additional information about the vacancy can be obtained from: Dr. ir. Jan De Beenhouwer (email@example.com) or Prof. Dr. J. Sijbers, (Jan.Sijbers@uantwerpen.be) from the University of Antwerp.
Interested candidates are invited to send a motivation letter, a detailed CV (including followed courses, honours, grades, previous work, programming skills, publications, …) and contact info of two references to Dr. ir. Jan De Beenhouwer (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Prof. Dr. J. Sijbers, (Jan.Sijbers@uantwerpen.be).
