PostDoc position for the study of innovative Cone-beam Computed Tomography solutions

Position: Post-Doc, duration: 18 months ((renewable for further 6 months), Net salary: ~2000 Euro/month - start May/June 2024 (negotiable).

Institution: INFN

Location: Ferrara, Italy

Application closes at: Apr 7th, 2024 23:59


PostDoc position for the study of innovative Cone-beam Computed Tomography solutions

Q-CT: Non-circular trajectory and collimated beam towards quantitative Cone-beam Computed Tomography


About the research Project

The project investigates and develops an innovative technical solution for an innovative Cone-beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) scanner aimed at overcoming the limitations of conventional CBCT scanners related to cone-artifacts and scatter abundance. The project involves the Italian Institute for Nuclear Physics (INFN),  Università “Federico II” di Napoli (Naples, Italy) and Italian clinics in a multidisciplinary context. A prototype will be realized and tested.


Foreseen activities

The foreseen activities will be regarding the technological implementation and performance characterization of the system, as well as the development of the reconstruction algorithms, simulation of performance, and image elaborations.

The candidate should possess a strong background in the field of X-ray imaging, at least 24 months of research experience (or a PhD title) are required for the application. Any previous experience with cone-beam CT systems, CT reconstruction algorithms, programming skills, and/or radiation transport simulations (e.g. Geant4) will be positively evaluated.


How to Apply
