Functieomschrijving

This PhD project is part of the NWO-TTO funded Simon Stevin Master award. The overarching aim of the project is to improve disease prognosis by integrated analysis of imaging and genetic data. We will address this challenge by developing methods for supporting the analysis of the relation between genetic data, imaging data, and disease outcome. Whereas the project focus will be on the development of novel analysis techniques, this development will take place in the context of different, societally relevant biomedical applications, primarily in the field of dementia and oncology. The use of state of the art machine learning and deep learning methods will be a main part of the project. In this project, the PhD student will work together with other image analysis researchers as well as with clinical researchers.

Functie-eisen

You should be an independent and highly motivated researcher with an MSc or MEng degree in a technical domain (e.g. Computer Science, Physics, Biomedical Engineering, Mathematics). Good programming skills are required. Experience with machine learning, image processing, and medical imaging is an advantage. You should be able to communicate and work with researchers from various clinical and technical fields.

Being able to present a certificate of good conduct is a condition for the appointment.

Conditions

The position is available immediately. You will receive a temporary position for 4 years. The gross monthly salary is € 2.279 ,- in the 1st year and increases to € 2.919,- in the 4th year (scale OIO). The terms of employment are according to the Collective Bargaining Agreement for Dutch University Medical Centers (CAO UMC).
