Offer Description

We seek a creative, collaborative and motivated candidate with an interest in medical ultrasound research with a focus on ultrasound elastography techniques. The candidate identified for this fellowship will work on projects related to ultrasound imaging and ultrasound-based characterization of tissues using elastographic techniques. Our goal is to transform medical ultrasound diagnosis through work that spans hardware and algorithm development focused on image and data analysis. The right candidate will have background in medical ultrasound with an excellent understanding of ultrasound physics and signal and image processing.

Our laboratory has extensive experience in non-invasive ultrasound techniques used in both medical applications and mechanical structures. The Principal Investigator has extensive experience towards developing techniques that can be used in the evaluation of tissue mechanical properties for the purposes of disease diagnosis. Elastography methods are available on machines produced by every major ultrasound vendor, and these techniques are used worldwide for assessing various conditions. The potential for impacting many patients is highly possible due to the widespread dissemination of ultrasound scanners.

A Research Fellow at AGH University is a temporary position intended to provide training and education in research. Individuals will train in the research program of an AGH UST Principal Investigator. Qualified individuals will demonstrate the potential for research as evidenced by their training and peer-reviewed publications and should become competitive for national research grants.

The successful applicant will:

The successful candidate will be appointed at the AGH University and will be expected to proactively develop research interests and to work effectively with others. Candidates who seek creative academic careers will have excellent growth opportunities, access to committed mentors, assistance with defining an early career trajectory, and mentored opportunities to apply for career development and research grants. Candidates will gain a deep understanding of key problems in medical imaging. Across a wide range of projects, our laboratory has developed specific expertise in advanced signal processing and there will be opportunities to gain exposure to these techniques.


  • The ideal candidate will have a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, or a related discipline obtained not later than 7 years before taking up this position.
  • A demonstrated record of scientific achievements, in particular publications in renowned international journals, post-conference reports of leading conferences and previously involved in the implementation of national and international scientific and research projects.
  • Experience in the analysis of spatio-temporal signals and images.
  • Strong knowledge of ultrasound wave propagation physics, signal processing, and experience with medical ultrasound instrumentation is required.
  • Proficiency in one or more programming language, especially MATLAB or Python is required.
  • Knowledge of FD, FE or other numerical methods will be a plus.

Strong communication skills in written and verbal English at least at B-2 level are required.
