PhD Position: Deep Learning for Biomedical Image Analysis
Biomedical Computer Vision Group, Heidelberg University, Germany

The research group Biomedical Computer Vision (BMCV) currently offers a PhD position in the field of Biomedical Image Analysis. The aim is the development of novel methods and software for automated analysis of biomedical images using Deep Learning (e.g., segmentation, tracking, registration). The general aim is to improve medical diagnosis and therapy, and the work is carried out in cooperation with biomedical partners.

The BMCV group develops methods and algorithms for automated analysis of biological and medical images, in particular, cell microscopy images and medical tomographic images. A wide spectrum of methods is investigated including segmentation, tracking, registration, and machine learning. A focus is on deep learning methods. The group achieved excellent results in international competitions on tracking.

Candidates must have a Master in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Medical Informatics, Biomedical Engineering, Bioinformatics, Applied Mathematics, or a related discipline. We are looking for a person with experience in Image Analysis and Deep Learning as well as good mathematical and programming skills. Experience with software container techniques such as Docker is helpful. Candidates should be highly motivated, team-oriented, and interested in interdisciplinary research.

Heidelberg University is a German Excellence University, the oldest University in Germany, and consistently ranked among the top universities in Europe. A research focus is on Biomedicine with close ties to other renowned institutions in Heidelberg.
