The candidate will join our interdisciplinary research team and will be responsible for (i) validating CE-CT contrast agents for tendon staining, allowing 3D visualization of its microstructure, (ii) generating the 3D and 4D CE-CT images and (iii) developing and validating advanced image processing and analysis approaches for segmentation and analysis of the CE-CT images. Therefore, the candidate should have:
- an MSc degree in Materials/Biomedical Engineering, Bio-Engineering or a related discipline, and should be graduated with at least distinction
- a strong interest in both experimental and computational research
- a profound interest in advanced image analysis and processing tools, such as machine learning and texture analysis
- good communication skills in English, both spoken and written
- the capacity to act independently and to take initiatives
- an interest in bridging the gap between the engineering and biological/biomedical sciences.
