Postdoc position in Deep Retinal Image Analysis at Shiley Eye Institute , University of California , San Diego.


We are looking for an Independent researcher to develop deep structural analysis of 2D/3D retinal images including 2D fundus images, 3D spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT), OCT Angiography and other imaging modalities.

Candidates required to work closely with a multidisciplinary team of UCSD computer scientists, clinical researchers and ophthalmologist from Shiley Eye Institute and other data centers to use state of the art deep learning techniques along with computer vision and pattern recognition methods to develop new methods for retinal pathologies detection.  The candidates should be familiar with machine learning concepts and use detected pathologies as a feature to diagnose different retinal diseases including diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration and glaucoma. Highly motivated candidates will also receive training and guidance in writing research grants.

Initial appointments will be made for 2 years with a possibility of extension.
