Postdoc position in 3D terahertz tomographic image reconstruction (f/m)


The Vision Lab at the University of Antwerp ( ) has an open position for a postdoctoral researcher to strengthen our tomography research team. Tomography is an image reconstruction technique that leans strongly on large-scale numerical mathematics and computational science. It has a wide range of applications in medicine (CT-scans), industry (nondestructive testing) and science (3D imaging of nanomaterials). She/he will develop image reconstruction methods for 3D terahertz imaging. The techniques will be applied to THz hardware technology developed at imec (

  • You develop novel reconstruction methods for THz tomography and publish your work in high quality journals
  • You would like to be involved in experimental THz tomography setups to validate your methods
  • You love to help PhD students in tomography
  • Qualifications: 

    Applicants are expected to hold a PhD іn computer science, physics, mathematics or engineering. Excellent programming skills and communication in English аrе key assets. Expertise іn tomographic image reconstruction or inverse problems is a plus.

    Labs involved: 

    The Vision Lab is a research group of the physics department at the University of Antwerp. The Vision Lab has unique expertise in the development of algorithms for reconstruction, processing and analysis of tomographic imaging data. Application domains are x-ray computed tomography (CT), MRI and electron tomography. The working environment is strongly interdisciplinary, combining techniques and insights from physics, mathematics, engineering, and computer science. The Vision Lab has a broad range of national and international collaborations with both academic and industrial partners. Recent publications on tomography can be found on .

    Our offer: 

    Our offer:
    • An exciting 1-year research project in a dynamic and international context, possible extension with 1 additional year.
    • Multidisciplinary research: close cooperation with imec for Thz data acquisition
    • a world-class research environment with state-of-the-art instrumentation

    Starting date: 
    As soon as possible

    Interested candidates are invited to send a motivation letter, a detailed CV (including honours, grades, programming skills, publications, …) and contact info of two references to Tanya Roovers ( ). Please mention ‘Postdoc_THz_2018’ in the subject of your mail.
