Postdoc position in Statistical Shape Modelling and Deep Learning based CT image processing (f/m)

Description:

Imec-Visionlab at the University of Antwerp has an open position for a Postdoc student to work on developing innovative methods based on Statistical Shape Modelling and Deep Learning to process X-ray CT image of the lower arm (radius). The goal is to automate the detection and segmentation of bone fractures and the prediction of a reduced bone (based on a shape model of a healthy bone). This research fits in a highly multidisciplinary project, which will be supervised by Prof Dr. Jan Sijbers and Dr. Femke Danckaers (both from Imec-Visionlab).

Research group

The Vision Lab (http://visielab.uantwerpen.be/) is a strong and exciting research group and has unique expertise in the development of algorithms for reconstruction, processing and analysis of imaging data. The working environment is strongly interdisciplinary, combining techniques and insights from Physics, Mathematics and Computer Science. The group has a broad range of national and international collaborations with both academic and industrial partners. Recent Vision Lab publications on statistical shape modelling can be found on http://visielab.uantwerpen.be/research/shape-modeling.

Qualifications

  • Candidates should have a PhD degree or equivalent in computer science, physics, mathematics or engineering

  • Experience with image analysis preferably deep learning based segmentation, classification methods and machine learning for image analysis

  • Experience with shape modelling is an advantage

  • Enthusiasm for working with industry and medical related problems

  • Excellent programming skills are key and experience with GPU implementation is a plus

  • Skills for working in a team

You love interdisciplinary science, and want to advance the field of shape modeling with your skills, creativity and novel solutions. You like to develop theory and afterwards code to put your new methods into practice. You also want to tell the world about your findings with sparkling presentations.

Our offer:

  • An exciting 2-year research project in a dynamic and international context (with possibility for extension)

  • Multidisciplinary research: cooperation with strong academic research groups

  • A world-class research environment with state-of-the-art instrumentation

Start date: October 1, 2020 (or earlier)

Applications:

Interested candidates are invited to send a motivation letter, a detailed CV (including followed courses, honours, grades, previous work, programming skills, publications, …) and contact info of two references to Christine.waerebeek@uantwerpen.be with cc to jan.sijbers@uantwerpen.be and famke.danckaers@uantwerpen.be with subject ‘POSTDOC/DIRAPLA/2020’.
