#15 Job: Post doctoral opening at Northeastern University

Post-Doctoral Research Position Available at Northeastern University
in Computational Physics and Signal Processing.

Description: As part of a Multidisciplinary University Research
Initiative aimed at the detection, localization, and classification of
buried land mines, a post-doctoral research position is available at
Northeastern University in Boston, MA combining elements of
computational physics and signal/image processing. The research will
center around physics-based signal processing methods for solving the
demining problem. The initial phase of the work will be directed
toward the development of computationally efficient sensor models
describing the diffusion and/or propagation of energy through the
earth, the interaction of the energy with buried objects, and the
process of measuring the resulting scattered fields. In particular,
models for low frequency electromagnetic inductive systems and radio
frequency ground penetrating radar sensors are of interest. The
second portion of the research will center on the development of
signal and image processing algorithms based on these models for mine
detection, localization, and classification. Of interest here are
statistical signal processing methods employing elements of decision
and estimation theory which are robust to sensor noise and
environmental clutter. 20

Requirements: A Ph.D. and strong analytical skills in a field relevant
to the above described work (eg. Electrical Engineering, Mathematics,
Physics, Geoscience etc.) with experience in at least a subset of the
following areas:

1. Statistical signal processing,
2. Computational electromagnetics,
3. Numerical analysis
4. Inverse scattering,
5. Multiscale methods including wavelets

The candidate will be expected to carry out research in an independent
manner and if interested aid in the supervision of Master's and
Doctoral level graduate students. Strong oral and written English
skills are a must.

Funding is available for up to three years and I am looking for someone
to start as soon as possible.

All interested applicants are invited to contact
Prof. Eric Miller
235 Forsyth Building
Northeastern University
Boston, MA 02115
Tel: 617-373-838609

for more information or to submit an application (CV, references, and a
reprint of a published journal article).20
