Postdoc position Dynamic X-ray Tomographic Image Reconstruction

Position nr.: 
Dept. of Physics (Vision Lab)
Date posted: 
Sunday, 12 September, 2021
Position status: 
Full Time Salaried

Imec-Visionlab, an imec ( research group at the University of Antwerp ( ), has an open position for a Postdoc to work on developing advanced image reconstruction methods for X-ray phase contrast tomography. Tomography is an image reconstruction technique that leans strongly on large-scale numerical mathematics, particularly linear algebra. It has a wide range of applications in medicine (CT-scans), industry (nondestructive testing, inspection and quality control) and science (3D characterization and material analysis).

In this project we want to develop improved image reconstruction methods for scanning problems where the object changes over time.


Applicants are expected to have a PhD in Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science, or Engineering. Excellent communication skills in English are key, as well as expertise in tomographic image reconstruction and deep learning.

Labs involved: 

The Vision Lab, an imec ( 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. The working environment is strongly interdisciplinary, combining techniques and insights from Physics, Mathematics and Computer Science. The group 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: 

An exciting research trajectory of 2 years (with possibility for extension of 1 more year). Multidisciplinary research: cooperation with strong academic research groups and industrial partners. A world-class research environment with state-of-the-art instrumentation and a brand-new customized UniTOM XL microCT system (FlexCT). A competitive postdoc salary with benefits.

Starting date: 
The latest by 1/1/2022.
