As a leading university hospital with a rich tradition, the Inselspital is part of the Insel Group and is a centre of medical expertise and high technology with an international reputation as well as being a first-class training and research centre.
Postdoctoral position in machine learning and Neuroimaging University Institute of Diagnostic and Interventional Neuroimaging
Admission from 01.05.2021 or upon agreement
(Duration 3 years)
At the Support Center for Advanced Neuroimaging (SCAN), our goal is to investigate advanced neuroimaging technologies and to develop innovations for the future. We are passionate about transforming methodological developments into clinical practice. As part of the Innosuisse project 'Advanced Stroke Analytics Platform' (ASAP) between the Inselspital, the Advanced Clinical Imaging Technology group of Siemens Healthineers, and the CHUV Radiology Department, we are recruiting a motivated post-doctoral researcher for three years to develop predictive algorithms for MRI stroke imaging. In this project, we will leverage recent advances in algorithms and tooling to develop federated deep learning algorithms that enable joint training of high-capacity deep neural networks while allowing each hospital to keep their data private. Our focus will be on developing robust and explainable 3D/4D models applied to stroke imaging, where both the CHUV and Bern hospitals have very high expertise and available data (several thousands of patients). Because stroke imaging workups rely on several protocols, an important and exciting challenge will be to develop algorithms that can deal with spatiotemporal differences in images between hospitals in terms of contrast, voxel size, slice thickness, repetition time, etc.
- PhD in a scientific discipline with a strong mathematical and computational component.
- Good knowledge of python and experience with with a deep learning framework (Tensorflow or Pytorch)
We are offering a position as a post-doc in one of the largest Neuroradiology Departments in Europe. The position is based at the Support Center for Advanced Neuroimaging, Inselspital Bern, Switzerland. Prior knowledge of medical imaging is appreciated but not required: a desire to develop solutions to real-world problems is essential. You will work in an interdisciplinary team of physicists, biomedical engineers, computer scientists and medical doctors. The preferred start date of the fellowship is May 2021 or upon availability. We embrace diversity and equal opportunity. The official language at the Lab is English.
