    on the project: MR Brain Image Analysis: Early Markers of Neurodegenerative Disease (Full-time position) The Biomedical Imaging Group Rotterdam (BIGR; www.bigr.nl) of the Departments of Medical Informatics and Radiology of the Erasmus MC, performs innovative fundamental and applied research to develop and validate advanced techniques for the processing and analysis of large, complex, and heterogeneous medical and biological image data sets. MR images of the brain reveal evidence of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease already before clinical symptoms appear. For instance, some brain structures are slightly smaller in people who will develop dementia later on. Such image based markers are of enormous importance for early diagnosis and may lead to improved treatment in an early stage. Erasmus MC performs a large scale image based study of the aging brain to investigate the complex neurodegenerative patterns involved in the development of dementia as well as in normal aging. Within this study, multi-sequence MR brain data of approximately 5500 participants is collected at intervals of three years. In this PhD project you will develop model based segmentation techniques to automatically analyze brain structures in a large number of images, and you will use machine learning techniques to derive image markers, related to the shape, size, and appearance of brain structures, that can help in recognizing early onset and predicting future development of dementia.

    on Image Processing for Smart Confocal Microscopy Full-time The Biomedical Imaging Group Rotterdam (BIGR; www.bigr.nl) of the Departments of Medical Informatics and Radiology of the Erasmus MC, performs innovative fundamental and applied research to develop and validate advanced techniques for the processing and analysis of large, complex, and heterogeneous medical and biological image data sets. Optical (confocal) microscopy has gone through impressive progress in the past decades and has provided powerful instruments for biomedical research. However, the limited resolution of even the best microscopes available today is impeding precise quantitative studies into the molecular mechanisms responsible for normal biological function of living cells and organisms, but also aberrant processes in diseases such as cancer, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s. In collaboration with Delft University of Technology we have therefore set up a multidisciplinary project to improve confocal microscopy for cutting-edge live-cell imaging research by the use of smart optics systems. For this project we are looking for a PhD student or Postdoc to develop advanced image processing and analysis methods needed to allow application of the smart confocal microscopy imaging system to address challenging biological research questions that cannot be answered with current state-of-the-art microscopes. The research includes the development of image deconvolution methods to further enhance the image data, as well as object tracking and shape analysis methods to quantify the (morpho)dynamics of moving cells and intracellular particles.

    on the project: Plaque@risk: Predicting rupture of atherosclerotic plaque The Biomedical Imaging Group Rotterdam (BIGR; www.bigr.nl), Erasmus MC, has two open PhD positions in the field of medical image analysis, applied to risk assessment of carotid atherosclerotic plaque. The main objective of the work is to define an algorithm that determines the chance of rupture of a specific atherosclerotic plaque by integrating the information from multiple imaging modalities (MRI, CT, Ultrasound). One PhD student will focus on the development and evaluation of computational methods to spatially align (register) multi-modal imaging data, cine imaging data, and imaging data acquired at different time points. The other PhD student will work on automated plaque composition analysis (segmentation) and will develop a rupture prediction model, based on the integrated analysis of imaging-derived data and other relevant risk factors. The project consists of fundamental research on image processing and machine learning, but also has a clearly defined clinical application.

    on the project: 4D Ultrasound for improved image guidance (full-time position) The Biomedical Imaging Group Rotterdam (BIGR; www.bigr.nl) of the Departments of Medical Informatics and Radiology of the Erasmus MC, performs innovative fundamental and applied research to develop and validate advanced techniques for the processing and analysis of large, complex, and heterogeneous medical and biological image data sets. We have one open PhD position in the field of medical image analysis, applied to utilization of pre-operative images in image guided liver interventions. The main objective is to integrate information on the target anatomy as obtained from pre-operative CT(A) or MR images into 3D ultrasound guided interventions. You will develop and evaluate methods to register the pre-operative imaging information to the interventional scene, using the interventional images and (a priori) knowledge on patient motion/deformation. The PhD position is part of an STW-funded research project, called “4D ultrasound for improved image guidance in minimally invasive needle interventions: the interventional cockpit”. This is a large project of TU Delft (Industrial Design), Erasmus MC (Department of Radiology and BIGR), and Philips Healthcare, and aims at developing optimal ultrasound-guided interventions.



  • Post doc Economic and Social History (0,8 fte)
    Post doc Economic and Social History (0,8 fte)
    Utrecht University, Faculty of Humanities
    The Project The pre-industrial era was characterized by sharp differences in economic growth, both spatially and chronologically. The proposed research aims to clarify some of the underlying causes of such differences by focusing on the institutional organization of the exchange of land, labour, capital and goods, since this critically influences the allocation of scarce resources and thus the potential for economic growth. In order to better understand why these institutions acquired their specific and often highly distinct nature, their development will be studied in the context of the socio-political organization of the area. The project is funded by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO), in the prestigious VICI scheme. Research leader is Prof Dr B.J.P. van Bavel. The post doc position and the wider project The research project consists of one PhD sub-project, three post-doc sub-projects and the sub-project of the research leader. The PhD and two post docs have already been selected and are working on the project for some time now. These are: Dr Michele Campopiano, Dr Jaco Zuijderduijn and Auke Rijpma. Together our five sub-projects will focus on the arenas where the influence of the social groups crystallized and where the decision-making process in the institutional organization of exchange took place, that is, the social organizations. Chosen as topics for the five sub-projects are social organizations at three levels of society. The post doc would focus on the craft guilds, or, alternatively on the villages. Choices for the particular sub-project can thus be discussed in the course of the selection process. For a further description of the sub-projects see the Appendix.
