Open Positions: 2 M.A.Sc. positions: I am looking for two enthusiastic creative, hard-working M.A.Sc. students to join our research team working on digital histopathology and pathomics (collaborative work with HURON Digital Pathology Inc - Waterloo, ON). The UofT team develops an innovative image processing framework for the custom-tailored fluorescence imaging workflow of HURON's next generation digital scopes. Using tools from signal & image processing, computer vision, bio-informatics, and machine learning the graduate students will be engaged in researching, developing, and testing new, cutting-edge fluorescence imaging solutions and predictive pathomics. Positions allow for close collaboration with both the postdoctoral fellows and researchers at the DSP lab and the technical staff at HURON.
Required Qualifications: B.Eng. in ECE, bachelor's degree in Computer Science or Physics with experience in image analysis, computer vision and machine learning.
Preferred Qualifications: Hands-on experience in image processing and machine learning in C/C++, Python, and MatLab.
Competitively funded and volunteer openings Positions for Ph.D. or M.A.Sc. students interested in working on explainable artificial intelligence, cognitive dynamic systems, autonomous systems, computer aided automated diagnosis for medical images, and predictive analytics. If you have received a NSERC (or OGS) graduate fellowship or have secured another funding source, please include the pertinent information in your communicate.
If you want to join my research group, please read my recent research papers (i.e. through Google Scholar, ScienceDirect or IEEEXplore), and contact me by sending an email (in plain ascii text) indicating a) the research area of interest to you, b) why you are interested, and c) what research you have done in the past. List your research publications (if any). A successful candidate should be able to apply and study at the competitive graduate ECE program at the University of Toronto (Communications-Signal Processing-Biomedical), have excellent background in mathematics and systems, and strong analytical skills. A strong track record in research with publications in conferences and journals in our area of research is a definite plus.
Note: The Multimedia Laboratory supports M.Eng. and undergraduate students and hosts visiting researchers, exchange graduate students, and post-doctoral fellows (research associates). If you like to join the laboratory as a post-doctoral fellow you must have a Ph.D. from a reputable research university (ECE/CS), a high-quality dissertation with an excellent set of publications, professionally mature written and oral communication skills, and seeking a post-doctoral position to pursue new research avenues and not just follow up on your previous work. A number of openings for M.Eng. and undergraduate students usually became available at the beginning of the academic year.
