CAMP Scholarship for Spain

CAMP is providinig a scholarship for extraordinary talented students aspiring a doctorate degree. Subject of this two years stay abroad will be the development of dedicated reconstruction algorithms for PET which take patient movements into account. Positron-emission-tomography (PET) is nowadays a well-established tool for diagnosing, staging and monitoring diseases in patients. However, due to the long acquisition times which are necessary for a PET scan, patient movements are often unavoidable. Patient motion during data acquisition can cause image blurring and even severe artifacts in the reconstructed image, thus posing a significant problem for further diagnosis and treatment. To date, available algorithms have been tested only on synthetic data since they rely on general transformation data of the patient which are currently not practically available.

Applicants Profile

Please only apply if fulfill ALL of the following mandatory requirements:

  • you recently finished your studies in computer science and you are from an elite university and received the highest possible grade
  • at least two international publications in the field of image processing/reconstruction
  • you master spanish language - fluent in spoken and written
