Saturday 13th February 2021

Closing date: open until filled 

The research group Translational Image-guided Oncology (Kleesiek) is seeking a postdoctoral researcher with excellent knowledge and practical experience in the field of machine learning (ML) and medical image analysis. Our research focuses on unsupervised and self-supervised learning, in particular to recognize patterns in medical data and to quantify uncertainty in algorithms.

Access to real-world medical data and being located within a hospital enables us to deliver algorithms at the point of care - generating a meaningful difference for patients, doctors, and hospital staff. Strong funding and state-of-the-art equipment support our efforts.

Your responsibilities encompass driving cooperations within and outside the hospital,
planning and execution of scientific projects, support in raising third-party funds, and the supervision of students. The successful applicant must have a Ph.D. in the fields of Computer Science, Physics or an equivalent discipline.

We offer a dynamic and enthusiastic team that wants to make a difference in the field of real-world medical ML applications. A creative atmosphere in an attractive and modern workplace helps in fostering and pursuing ideas. 

The newly founded Institute for Artificial Intelligence in Medicine (IKIM) is part of the SMART Hospital concept of the University Hospital Essen and the University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany. The institute is located in the heart of Essen-Rüttenscheid, a vibrant district that offers many cultural, culinary, and intellectual opportunities.
