*Stockholm Brain Institute* offers state-of-the-art facilities for PET 
imaging with the High Resolution Research Tomograph (HRRT) scanner and 
state-of-the-art analysis possibilities with its IBM Blue Gene 
supercomputer located at PDC, KTH. This two year full-time position will 
develop advanced analysis tools to enhance the accuracy of 
quantification and to optimize the temporal resolution of brain PET 
studies. The implementation of such tools will be achieved through the 
use of parallel programming on the Blue Gene in collaboration with IBM.

Candidates should have a background in computer science or a closely 
related field and have experience with high-performance parallel 
computing, PET reconstruction techniques, and image analytics. 
Candidates interested in disseminating high-performance computing 
techniques to other users within SBI will be preferred.

Form of employment: Two year temporary position.
Start date: According to agreement
