The mission is part of the program of the ANR Collaborative Research Project 'Simulation and Imaging of the Mitral Regurgitation' (SIMR) led by the INRIA COMMEDIA team which includes 6 partners and started in February 2020. Mitral valve regurgitation (or mitral insufficiency) is one of the most frequent pathologies of the mitral valve. The diseased valve can either be replaced or repaired surgically. The SIMR project has two objectives: 1) to evaluate the quality of mitral valve repair using the NeoCHord technique using innovative imaging and modeling tools (15 patients), 2) to develop tools for numerical simulation of cardiac hemodynamics, fluid-structure interaction and biomechanics.
In this context, the software engineer (M/F) recruited will participate in structuring the archiving of acquired multi-modality imaging data (cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT), ultrasound) and metadata produced on the infrastructure of the CREATIS laboratory; he will contribute to the implementation, development and availability of software tools for the analysis of these data to project members. Finally, it will aid the project members on the available data and tools.
The SIMR project involves collecting imaging data from patients before and after mitral valve repair and making it available on a common secure platform at CREATIS. The software engineer (M/F) recruited will contribute to the development of the data processing chain with in particular :
- Collecting and structuring acquired imaging data,
- Preparation of imaging data for analysis,
- Helping to build individualized patient models, geometric, parameterized and integrating the information produced by CT (highly resolved heart-valve anatomical model) for developments in simulation and MRI (Geometric Model of the Heart),
- Helping to extract information from images: tissue properties, movement (tracking primitives in Cine-MRI, DENSE imaging), flow...
We are looking for a software engineer with a specialization in data processing and analysis, including images, with if possible experience in medical image analysis and the following skills:
Programming: MATLAB and/or Python and/or C, C++. Image processing/analysis software and libraries. Knowledge of numerical simulation software (COMSOL, Abaqus, Ansys) is a plus.
Language: mastery of written and spoken technical English.
The work will be carried out at the CREATIS Laboratory (http://www.creatis.insa-lyon.fr/) on the LyonTech-La Doua Campus site in Lyon, for the medical data analysis component, in interaction with the DyCTiM2 team from the TIMC laboratory in Grenoble, for the biomechanical modelling component. Travel to the Saint Etienne CHU site (reference centre for cardiac MRI) will be necessary for patient acquisitions. The software engineer (M/F) recruited will work with the permanent staff and doctoral/post-doctoral students of the team involved in SIMR.
The recruited engineer will benefit from the advantages made available by the CNRS delegation on the Doua campus with in particular:
o Social aspects:
o Extra-curricular assistance
o Catering, transport assistance
o Leave entitlement (~45 days/year), telework under conditions
o Establishment involved (QWL disability, diversity, parity)
o Mobility support
o Dynamic Campus
o Sports and cultural facilities
o Exceptional working environment
o Campus map: soft transport
