Daily responsibilities of the candidate include:

  • Create test protocols for collecting ultrasound data from volunteer participants in the clinic studies.
  • Develop custom code for analyzing ultrasound data in your choice of software (MATLAB/Python/R/etc.). The analyses range from segmentation of ophthalmic components, quantitative analysis of vitreous backscatter and statistical analysis of disease versus non disease patients.
  • Assemble and organize a data base of clinical data and oversee analysis of the data as it relates to the clinical goals of the research program.
  • Establish test protocols with clinical ultrasound machine, train clinical collaborators on feature and protocols use and manage data collection and transfer.
  • Become familiar with the anatomy of the eye and the characteristics of the vitreous in health and diseases such as myopia.
  • Prepare data visualizations and perform statistical analyses for conference presentations and journal articles.
  • Attend weekly meetings with the PIs and record participate in the progress of the project on multiple fronts.

 

Qualifications

  • Earned a recent or soon to earn a doctorate in mechanical, electrical, biomedical engineering or related relevant field.
  • Experience with ultrasound imaging systems and technology strongly desired.

The successful candidate will work closely with internationally recognized investigators at WCM, New York University, and North Carolina State University.

This project will develop new high-frequency ultrasound, plane-wave CMUT row-column instrumentation and signal-processing techniques to determine subtle changes in complex blood flow patterns in a mouse model of heart failure. Progressive changes to flow characteristics in a transverse aortic banding mouse model will be analyzed as a possible method of early detection prior to the development of left ventricle dilatation and heart failure

Daily responsibilities of the candidate include:

  • Create test protocols for collecting high-speed ultrasound data using high-speed plane-wave techniques.
  • Develop custom code for analyzing ultrasound data in your choice of software (MATLAB/Python/R/etc.). The analyses include flow characterization in small animals and phantoms, segmentation of cardiac structure, and strain imaging of myocardium.
  • Assemble and organize a database of in vivo cardiac data and oversee analysis of the data as it relates to the clinical goals of the research program.
  • Establish test protocols with clinical ultrasound machine, train clinical collaborators on feature and protocols use and manage data collection and transfer.
  • Become familiar with cardiac function and cardiac diseases such as diseases related to left ventricle disfunction.
  • Prepare visualizations of blood flow in format that provide insight into normal and abnormal flow patterns.

 

Qualifications

  • Earned a recent or soon to earn a doctorate in mechanical, electrical, biomedical engineering or related relevant field.
