Project title: 

Scientific programmer (in the domain of computed tomography)


Imec-Visionlab, an exciting research group at the University of Antwerp ( ), has an open position for a Scientific Programmer to efficiently implement novel image reconstruction methods for X-ray and TeraHertz Computed 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) and material science (3D imaging of nanomaterials).


You have a M.Sc. degree іn thе field οf Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics, or Engineering (or equivalent). You love coding in C++, python/matlab and in CUDA and you see an interdisciplinary environment as a plus. You have a good sense of humor and you also want to tell the world about your findings with sparkling presentations.

Labs involved: 

The Vision Lab has unique expertise in the development of algorithms for reconstruction, processing and analysis of 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 Vision Lab publications on tomography can be found on

Our offer: 

• a world-class research environment with state-of-the-art computer infrastructure
• Multidisciplinary research: cooperation with strong academic research and industrial partners

Starting date: 
As soon as possible
