Postdoctoral associates (UVa): imaging and data science

The Departments of Electrical Engineering and Biomedical Engineering at the University of Virginia seek multiple post-doctoral Research Associates to work in the Imaging and Data Science Laboratory ( focusing on mathematical modeling and machine learning. The laboratory seeks to develop mathematical approaches in support of predictive modeling tasks in a variety of medical imaging applications (e.g. radiology, biology, pathology) as well as signal processing applications (e.g. reduced order modeling, system identification, structural health monitoring). Specific topics of interest include the mathematics of optimal transport and other Lagrangian methods for representing signals, images, and data in general. See for more information.

Applicants will be expected to interact with graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, faculty, and staff to perform scientific research in the topics outlined above. The laboratory publishes papers in biomedical imaging journals (e.g. IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging, Neuroimage, Cytometry), applied mathematics (e.g. Applied and Computational Harmonic Analysis, Journal of Mathematical Imaging and Vision, Sampling theory, signal processing, and data analysis, AIMS Foundations of Data Science), signal processing (IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing), image processing/computer vision (International Journal of Computer Vision, IEEE Transactions on Image Processing) as well as machine learning (CVPR, Neurips) and other venues (PNAS, Nature Communications). The applicant will be expected to contribute publications to these and other venues. The Imaging and Data Science Laboratory has ongoing collaborations with diverse faculty at UVA and other academic institutions in the US and abroad, government research institutions including the National Institutes of Health, and the Naval Research Laboratory, and private companies. The applicant will be expected to help lead projects with these and other collaborators.
