Two PHD positions Artificial Intelligence in Medical Imaging

Monday 8th March 2021

Closing date: April 5 2021
The “Knowledge-Driven AI Lab” (KDAI Lab) at the Department of Imaging Physics, Faculty of Applied Sciences is devoted to the development and application of AI in applied sciences. We aim to strengthen today’s data-driven AI through integrating fundamental knowledge of imaging physics.
KDAI has 2 PhD vacancies for AI research in medical imaging:
(1) Research on AI methods integrating imaging physics. Your role is to develop AI methods that go beyond the data-driven principle and actively integrate the imaging physics of data (e.g. MRI, CT). The goal is to make the AI algorithms fundamentally robust and generalizable to data sources, including different manufacturers and medical centers. 
(2) Research on explainable medical imaging AI. You role is to investigate explainable AI (XAI), in the scenario of medical imaging. This includes post-hoc understanding and visualization of complex deep neural networks for medical image analysis, and integration of explainability into the medical imaging AI algorithm design.

• An MSc degree in (applied) physics, (applied) mathematics, computer science, electrical engineering, data science, artificial intelligence, or related fields.
• Interest in modern AI principles and applications.
• Proficiency in programming languages C/C++, Matlab, Python.
• Proficiency in written and verbal English.
• The ability to work in a team, take initiative, and be results-oriented.
• An affinity with teaching and guiding students.
• An affinity with medical imaging, image analysis, and clinical applications will be a plus.
