THE PERFORM CENTRE AND THE DEPARTMENT OF ELECTRICAL AND COMPUTER ENGINEERING (ECE), FACULTY OF ENGINEERING AND COMPUTER SCIENCE
Concordia University’s PERFORM Centre and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering are seeking excellent applicants at the Associate Professor or Assistant Professor level in Biomedical image processing. The successful candidate will be expected to develop a strong and independent research program at PERFORM while being a faculty member of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
The recently launched PERFORM Centre is a multi-disciplinary research centre located in Montréal, Canada, and part of Concordia University. The centre involves more than twenty researchers from different departments across campus with a research focus on preventive health research and the promotion of healthy lifestyles. The PERFORM Centre hosts a state-of-the-art imaging unit dedicated to conducting cutting-edge lifestyle preventative health research. The centre houses a GE Healthcare 3T Magnetom functional MRI scanner, a PET-CT scanner with cardiac imaging and a SPECT-CT scanner. In addition there are specialized labs in electroencephalography (EEG), transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), ultrasound and dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA).
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is comprised of 41 faculty members, 14 staff members and approximately 550 undergraduate and 600 graduate students.
Applicants must possess expertise and research interests in the processing of biomedical imaging data. She/He would be an emerging or established expert in developing new signal/image processing tools to build advanced statistical models of biomedical signals. The candidates interest could include but not be limited to, structural biomedical imaging, resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or diffusion MRI, PET imaging, advanced EEG, near-infrared spectroscopy and Doppler imaging.
A strong emphasis is placed on fundamental and applied research, interdisciplinary research partnerships, and the ability to establish and develop industrial collaborations as well as international collaborations. Teaching is also an important activity of the successful candidate.
Applicants must hold Ph.D. and Bachelor’s degrees in a relevant Engineering discipline. The language of instruction at Concordia is English; however, knowledge of French is an asset.
Detailed applications should include, a CV, teaching and research statements, and names of three referees, and shall be accepted in electronic form (PDF) until positions are filled. Applications should be sent to Dr. W.E. Lynch, at blynch(at)ece.concordia.ca, no later than February 15, 2014. Review of applications will continue until suitable candidates have been identified. Further details are available at www.encs.concordia.ca and a comprehensive description of PERFORM facilities and activities can be found at http://performcentre.concordia.ca/en/.
All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents of Canada will be given priority. Concordia University is committed to employment equity and encourages applications from women, aboriginal peoples, visible minorities and disabled persons.
