Job Description

Position Summary

An immediate opening for a postdoctoral position is available at the Breast Image Computing Lab, within the Computational Imaging Research Center (CIRC) of the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology (MIR), at Washington University School of Medicine (WUSM) in St. Louis. 

The Breast Image Computing Lab, directed by Dr. Aimilia Gastounioti, offers meaningful projects at the forefront of translational breast imaging research. The selected candidate will lead or participate in projects developing, implementing, and applying computational breast image analytics and artificial intelligence algorithms for breast cancer screening applications. A priority area is breast cancer risk assessment models for 2D and 3D mammography, with a primary focus on racial disparities towards bringing effective risk models to a larger breast cancer screening population than being targeted today. The selected candidate will have the opportunity to work in a highly collaborative and multi-disciplinary environment and to closely interact with world-class radiologists, medical physicists, oncologists, biostatisticians and imaging scientists. They will also have ample opportunities to publish research methods and scientific findings in academic journals and at premier scientific conferences. We are dedicated to maintaining a vibrant and diverse working environment and to providing as many opportunities as possible for young trainees to pursue their scientific and professional goals.

CIRC is a multi-investigator research center with over 40 students, postdoctoral fellows, staff, and clinical fellows that provides a collaborative environment for diverse computational research initiatives. CIRC investigators perform ground-breaking work in medical image processing and analysis, imaging informatics, artificial intelligence, and a range of disease-focused applications. MIR is an international leader in future-driven education and groundbreaking research. MIR is deeply committed to distinction in teaching and learning and excellence in research, being consistently ranked one of the top Diagnostic Radiology Departments for NIH funding. It has a highly productive, extensive and collaborative research program based on modern scientific disciplines. Faculty and students of MIR have access to world-class research support facilities including Center for High Performance Computing, Shared Data Storage, Center for Clinical Imaging Research, Cyclotron Facility, MRI Facility and Pre-Clinical Imaging Facility. Pursuing highly interdisciplinary research, MIR offers unparalleled opportunities for collaborative research within the Department, with other WUSM departments, the Siteman Cancer Center, the Institute for Informatics, the McDonnell Genome Institute, the Institute for Clinical and Translational Research, and the School of Engineering & Applied Science on the Danforth Campus of Washington University in St. Louis.
