Postdoc in Ultrasound Computed Tomography and Elastography


The Computer-assisted Applications in Medicine group ( in the Computer Vision Lab is seeking a qualified postdoc.

The tasks will involve designing, developing, and testing signal processing and image analysis solutions for ultrasound computed tomography (in particular imaging speed-of-sound in tissue) and/or elastography imaging.  The position will allow for exploring diverse research directions also in line with the applicant’s background, as well as close interaction with and potential co-supervision of PhD students.  Applicants should demonstrate a strong research potential and relevant background, with publications in top-ranked journals and conferences.  Programming skills in Matlab and C++ are essential.  Candidates are required to hold a doctoral degree and to have demonstrated considerable achievements in a related research field.    The position is open immediately.



  • PhD degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, or related fields
  • A good publication record in relevant fields, with a strong research interest and orientation
  • Enthusiasm for leading-edge research, team spirit, and capability for independent problem-solving
  • Good programming knowledge and experience with Matlab and C++
  • Experience in inverse problems, optimization, and/or ultrasound signal analysis is a plus
  • Experience in the medical domain and with clinical partners is an advantage
  • Fluent written and spoken English is a must
