Postdoc Position in Computational Imaging: Algorithms, Machine Learning, and Theory 

We are looking for candidates for a postdoctoral position involving work on numerous challenges at the intersection of computational imaging, machine learning, optimization, and theory. The postdoc may work on multiple problems in these domains. Potential topics include developing and analyzing new models, optimization algorithms and machine learning methods, and solving related fundamental theoretical questions in tomographic imaging, especially in the presence of scatter or with dynamic data. Mathematical questions and algorithms in extremely limited-data imaging (in tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, etc.) are also of interest. The postdoc position will be primarily with Prof. Sai Ravishankar’s Signals, Learning, and Imaging (SLIM) group at Michigan State University and would also be very collaborative with Los Alamos National Laboratory (Dr. Brendt Wohlberg and Dr. Marc Klasky) and Prof. Deanna Needell at the University of California, Los Angeles. 

Candidates must have a strong background in some or all of the above areas and should be highly motivated to perform rigorous scientific research both independently and collaboratively and have a strong vision for research. Candidates should have (or expect to have soon) a PhD degree in Electrical or Computer Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Mathematics, or related fields, and should have strong programming skills. 

Interested candidates should email Prof. Ravishankar ( and include their main interests and a CV with their publication and academic record, along with a brief research statement (of past research and future plans), and contact information for three references. We will contact candidates for interview after initial review.

Applicants should also submit their materials at
