Immediate opening for a post-doctoral fellow at 
the « Imaging and Modeling in Neurobiology and 
Cancerology » lab, UMR 8165 CNRS Paris 7 
University - Paris 11 University, Orsay, France

Our research group is looking for a talented 
researcher whose responsibilities would primarily 
include the modeling of a modular high resolution 
and high sensitivity SPECT system for small 
animal imaging based on solid state detectors, 
and the development and implementation of 
dedicated reconstruction algorithms.

Our project is building a SPECT prototype shaped 
as a set of modules for detection and collimation 
with the capability of being exchanged and 
removed, depending on the type of experiments. 
The detection modules will be based on specially 
designed CZT detectors with depth-of-interaction 
measurements. Tuned reconstruction algorithms 
will be developed to make the best of the 
detector capabilities. The project also includes 
the assessment of the prototype for cardiac, 
brain and cancer imaging applications in 
collaboration with three INSERM and CEA 
validation centers. We are looking for 
researchers who have experience in:
-	SPECT or PET simulations,
-	Detector and collimator design,
-	Tomographic reconstruction algorithms.

This is an exciting 3 year project which will 
provide opportunities for both basic research as 
well as development/deployment of fully 
functional prototypes for biological 
applications, in close collaboration with several 
teams of physicists (CNRS, CEA-LETI, Biospace 
lab), computer scientists and physicians (INSERM, 

The ANR-funded (French Research Agency) 
post-doctoral position is for 18 months renewable 
for 3 years. The successful candidate will be 
based at the « Imaging and Modeling in 
Neurobiology and Cancerology » research lab, UMR 
8165 CNRS Paris 7 University - Paris 11 
University, in the Orsay campus (20 km south of 
Paris), France.
