Research Scientist Job
Date: Oct 9, 2013
Location: Bangalore, India
|Business Segment:||Global Research|
|About Us:||GE Global Research (GRC) is the central research arm for the GE company and is one of the oldest and most diverse industrial research labs. It performs strategic and longer-term R&D for all GE businesses, in addition to providing technology development and R&D support for new product introduction. It employs roughly 2,000 employees at five global locations in almost every scientific and engineering discipline.|
GRC has played a central role in the growth and expansion of the Healthcare business through breakthrough innovation and critical technology development. From the invention of the first practical x-ray tube, the first
1.5T clinical MR scanner, the first digital x-ray imager and numerous inventions in MRI, CT and ultrasound to more recent programs in areas such as physiological monitoring, cell therapy technologies and molecular pathology, GRC has often laid the technology foundation for the growth of GE Healthcare. GRC also plays a central role in identifying adjacent spaces for business growth and often spearheads technology development in these spaces to establish a footprint for the business.
Personalization in healthcare has been identified as a key growth area for GE Healthcare (GEHC) and GRC is playing a key role in this regard. There are on-going, multi-disciplinary programs in digital and molecular pathology, tissue imaging, circulating tumor cells, diagnostic gene sequencing, diagnostic imaging (MRI, CT, PET, Ultrasound), physiological monitoring (ECG, US, EEG, etc.) and informatics approaches to identify clinically relevant biosignatures. Biomedical signal processing will play a central role in this initiative with breakthroughs resulting in novel, portable imaging modalities for many applications including tissue characterization, and instrument design and development for gathering and analyzing physiological data for patient care and life support solutions. Image processing and signal processing also plays a key role in emerging applications of next generation CT, MRI and Ultrasound imaging. Markers generated by signal processing and image analysis algorithms will feed into biosignature algorithms along with –omics data to answer biological questions such as risk of cardiovascular disease, recurrence of cancer, etc.
We are looking to grow our team of medical image processing and biomedical signal processing researchers within the Biosignatures & Signal Processing Technology Organization at GE Global Research in Bangalore. We are looking for top notch researchers at all career levels who want to be part of this exciting journey. As a group, we will:
- Innovate and execute on the R&D strategy around image processing and signal processing aligned with the GEHC business initiatives in a broad set of areas ( Patient monitoring, Life support, MRI, CT, Ultrasound, Cell therapy, Molecular Diagnostics, etc.).
- Drive cutting edge research
- Participate in strategic collaborations with top universities and pharma/biotech
- Publish in key conferences and journals, as well as generate core IP.
