Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Nuclear Medical Physics

A three-year Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Nuclear Medical Physics will be available at the Department of Radiology of the University of Massachusetts starting 1-February-2021, or thereafter. The position is designed to train recent graduates to work as a medical physicist in an academic department, clinical position (training for ABSNM certification), and in industry, and introduce NIH grant writing. The successful candidate will participate in ongoing research in single-photon emission computed tomographic (SPECT) imaging, reconstruction, motion estimation and correction, and applications of machine learning. The facilities available include private office/research space, high-performance workstations, a large CPUs/GPUs cluster facility, and access to nuclear medicine imaging systems in the clinic.

Candidates must have a doctoral degree in medical physics, physics, applied mathematics, engineering, or computer science. Proven expertise in C/C++ and/or python programming and working with Linux and Windows workstations is required. Demonstrated experience with tomographic imaging and reconstruction, Geant4/GATE/SIMIND Monte Carlo simulation, MATLAB, machine learning (particularly deep learning(DL)) with a focus on medical imaging, and programming with one or more of the major DL packages (Pytorch, Tensorflow, Caffe, etc.) is desired.

To apply send a letter of application detailing relevant experience and career objectives, a curriculum vitae, and the names of three references to:
