[visionlist] job opening for a patent examiner in pattern recognition

position: patent examiner in Pattern Recognitionwhere: European Patent Officelocation: The Hague (Netherlands)The job of a European patent examiner demands
a unique combination of scientific expertise, analytical thinking, language
skills and an interest in intellectual property law. Minimum requirements Candidates must meet the following formal
requirements:- Citizenship of one of the member states
of the European Patent Organisation.- Full university degree in physics, chemistry,
engineering or natural sciences.- The degree should be relevant to the technical
field in which you would like to work.Generally, an excellent knowledge of one
official language (English, French and German) and the ability to understand
the other two.In exceptional cases, excellent knowledge
of one official language and the ability to understand another. In such
a case, the Office may also consider offering a fixed-term contract (for
a maximum of three years) instead of permanent employment. Candidates recruited
on that basis may be appointed as permanent employees if, no later than
three months before expiry of the contract, they demonstrate that they
have reached the level of knowledge of the third language stipulated in
the contract.You should also have a genuine interest in
technology, an eye for detail and an analytical mind.ExperienceWork experience in industry is not essential,
but would be an advantage.As to the field of pattern recognition, we
can inform you about the following. It would be preferable to have knowledge
and experience in one or more of the following subjects:- tools of image processing, e.g. for de-noising,
filtering, descriptors, segmentation, feature extraction – statistical signal/image analysis and insight
in the underlying background, e.g. Bayes theory, multivariate distributions,
Markov models – broad knowledge and interest in physics
and technology – classification techniques, e.g. support
vector machines, discriminant analysis neural networks, boosting – a PhD encompassing the above qualities
is not strictly required, but would be an advantage Please visit: http://www.epo.org/about-us/jobs/vacancies/examiners.htmlfor further information. The on-line application form can be found

[Imageworld] MICCAI workshop on Medical Content-Based Retrieval for Clinical Decision Support

* Call for Papers*
MICCAI workshop on Medical Content-Based
Retrieval for Clinical Decision Support
Submission Deadline: June 3, 2013
Workshop Date: September 26, 2013
Nagoya, Japan
The goal of this workshop is to bring
together researchers in medical
 imaging, medical image retrieval,
data mining, text retrieval, and in the
machine learning/AI communities to discuss
new techniques of
multimodal mining/retrieval and their
use in clinical decision support.
We are looking for original, high-quality
submissions that address
innovative research and development
in the analysis, search and
retrieval of multimodal medical data.
Topics for the workshop include, but
are not limited to:
 – Mining of multimodal medical
data (X-ray, MRI, CT, digital pathology,
   echo videos, time series
data, text)
 – Machine learning algorithms
for classification and similarity retrieval
   of medical image collections
 – Disease correlations from mining
multimodal imaging and
   non-imaging data
 – Biomedical imaging interpretation
(pathology imaging, cellular imaging)
   and its use in disease
 – Browsing and summarization methods
for large multimodal data for use
   in clinical decision support
 – Algorithms for indexing of data
from multimodal medical databases
 – Disease model-building and clinical
decision support systems based
   on multimodal analysis
 – Practical applications of clinical
decision support using multimodal data
   retrieval or analysis
 – Results of clinical studies/evaluations
of decision support algorithms
MCBR-CDS will use a double-blind review

[Imageworld] Post-Doc position in in Medical Imaging, Machine Learning and Compress Sensing at INRIA, Rennes, France

Post-doctoral position in Computer Vision,  Medical Image Analysis, Machine Learning and Compress Sensing  at INRIA, Rennes, FranceSTARTING DATE: End of 2013DURATION: 12 to 18 months 
TITLE: Sparse Estimation For Real-Time Quantitative Detection Of Arterial Spin Labelling Activations In Neuroimaging

Keywords: Image Analysis, Clinical Neurosciences, Medical Imaging, Sparse Representation, Non linear estimation

Objectives of the project:

The objective of this Post-Doc
position is to elaborate new robust parametric estimation methods for real time
detection of Arterial Spin Labelling (ASL) activations in the context of
evolution of perfusion through visual or auditory stimuli under MRI. The
post-doc activity will need to take into account dynamic temporal information
coming from functional MRI and elaborate estimation methods of quantitative
parameters of brain perfusion evolution along time. We expect this postdoc to
elaborate new imaging solutions taking into account the real-time / streaming
constraints and involving advanced techniques based on sparse representations
and mixed norms to introduce spatial and temporal regularization of the
parametric maps.


This work will be conducted in the
context of the Inria National research project HEROES and will be conducted in
collaboration between the Unit/Project VISAGES U746 (INSERM / INRIA / CNRS / University
of Rennes I) whose research activities are directed towards neuroimaging and
medical image processing, and the PANAMA Inria research Team whose research
activities are directed towards machine learning and compressive sensing. This
work will benefit from a new research 3T MRI system provided by the NeurInfo
in-vivo neuroimaging platform on which these new research protocols will be set
