Post-doc position at the Bioacoustics Reasearch Laboratory, Illinois

The Bioacoustics Research Laboratory of the ECE Department at the University of Illinois is looking for a post-doc fellow to work in the area of biomedical ultrasound. Interested individuals are encouraged to contact Professors Aiguo Han (han51@illinois.edu) and/or William D. O’Brien, Jr. (wdo@uiuc.edu). 

Qualifications:

  • 1. Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Medical Physics, Acoustics, Applied Physics or other closely related quantitative ultrasound areas.
  • 2. Strong knowledge of ultrasound and/or wave propagation physics and signal processing, and experience with ultrasound instrumentation/transducers.
  • 3. Experience with image processing, machine learning and clinical translation of imaging technologies is a plus.

Examples of potential projects:

  • 1. Ultrasonic scattering and/or wave propagation models (e.g., structure function) for tissue microstructure characterization.
  • 2. Novel Quantitative Ultrasound (QUS) imaging techniques.
  • 3. Ultrasound signal processing and machine learning methods to facilitate healthcare decision making.
