Description: We are recruiting a postdoctoral fellow, who will conduct research in the field of medical image processing targeting high-dimensional brain imaging data.

Medical imaging modalities such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) often produce complex image data in vector or tensor format, e.g. diffusion tensor MRI, functional MRI or MR elastography. For the computationally demanding post-processing of such data, we use modern machine learning techniques like convolutional neural networks, graph convolutional networks and reinforcement learning. This project will deal with developing, adapting and applying such techniques to imaging data from patients with neurodegenerative diseases, available to us thanks to our close cooperation with Karolinska Institute.

dBRAIN is an interdisciplinary initiative at KTH to better understand neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease. We combine brain imaging, machine learning, topological data analysis and computational modelling of biological neuronal networks at multiple scales to identify causal links among disease biomarkers and disease symptoms. This understanding should improve diagnosis, prediction of the disease progression and suggest better therapies.

As a postdoc you will independently develop such methods, resulting in scientific publications and presentations at international conferences.

The application must be done through the recruitment system of KTH:
