Post-doctoral Fellow in Computational Nuclear Medicine Imaging

Position Summary: The Computational Medical Imaging lab at Washington University in St. Louis (WashU) is seeking highly motivated postdoctoral fellows for NIH-funded projects on developing computational methods for quantitative nuclear-medicine imaging. This is a highly exciting opportunity to impact both the technology and the clinical translation of quantitative imaging.

The fellow will conduct highly innovative and clinically impactful physics and artificial intelligence-based computational nuclear-medicine imaging research. The fellow will leverage the unique strengths of WashU, including access to state-of-the-art scanners and opportunities to collaborate with a diverse group of multidisciplinary researchers from the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology in the School of Medicine and the Department of Biomedical Engineering in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at WashU. Opportunities to initiate new projects will also be available. For more information visit our Research page.

Required Qualifications: Applicants must have a PhD degree in Biomedical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, Medical Physics, or closely related areas. The successful candidate will have a strong background in imaging physics. Experience in machine learning, conducting physical phantom studies, and in working with clinical data will be advantageous.

Salary and Benefits: Job Type/Schedule: This position is full-time and works approximately 40 hours per week. Base pay will be commensurate with experience.  This position is eligible for full-time benefits.  Please visit our website at to view a summary of benefits.

Applicant Special Instructions: Position is available starting immediately. Interested candidates please go through the research and publications on our web page and send (1) a research statement and (2) their CV via email to Dr. Abhinav K. Jha (

Graduate Research Assistant in computational imaging

Graduate Research Assistant positions are available for projects on developing novel computational methods for medical imaging. Research will lead to training in the areas of task-specific computational imaging, imaging science, statistical signal processing and machine learning. Projects are available in the areas of image reconstruction, image analysis, and developing deep-learning-based methods for medical imaging. Further, there will be opportunities to pursue new ideas.

The ideal candidate will have a keen desire to learn, a strong work ethic, and background in programming and signal processing. Interested students please go through a few of our Publications and send us (1) a short write up summarizing what they find interesting and how they can contribute and (2) their resume to Dr. Abhinav K. Jha via email.

Summer positions for undergraduate students

Opportunities for summer projects on developing novel computational methods for medical imaging are available. This is a highly exciting opportunity to gain research experience in the areas of signal processing, image analysis and machine learning at a new lab. There will be opportunities to extend the work to a longer duration project.

Applicants must have a keen desire to learn and strong work ethic. Interested students please send (a) a short writeup summarizing their interests and objectives in gaining this research experience and (b) resume to Dr. Abhinav K. Jha via email.
