A postdoctoral fellowship is available within the Medical Physics group at
the University of Massachusetts Medical School, Department of Radiology. The
Medical Physics group consists of a number of physicists, engineers, 
and PhD students working on medical imaging problems. The successful 
will work on projects related to PET imaging, specifically the optimization
and evaluation of time-of-flight PET and the development of novel approaches
for PET reconstruction. In addition, the candidate will work on the 
of objective measures for assessing PET image quality. A major 
will be working with Monte Carlo simulation using the GATE software, and 
UMASS in the openGATE collaboration 
Resources that are dedicated to this research include a 346 CPU computer 

Candidates must have a doctoral degree in medical physics, physics, 
or computer science.  Proven expertise in computer programming, working 
with Unix
workstations,  and mathematics through linear algebra are essential. 
Knowledge and
experience with nuclear medicine imaging (PET), Monte Carlo simulation, 
image reconstruction, and methods for objective assessment of image 
quality is desired.
Good communication skills are necessary. The successful candidate will 
have the
opportunity for gaining exposure to the Nuclear Medicine clinic and teaching
experience if desired.  This position carries a minimum three-year 
and promotion to junior faculty is possible.

To apply, send a letter of application, a curriculum vitae, a list of 
courses, and names of three references to: Stephen Glick, Ph.D.,
