The MERLIN project is a H2020 ICT project focused on improving in-depth diagnosis and therapeutic follow-up of diseases that impact the eye's retina. To that end, the project partners will develop a novel medical imaging device able to detect pathological alterations in the retina with highly enhanced sensitivity and specificity. Modalities included are ultrafast scanning laser ophthalmoscopy, optical coherence tomography and OCT angiography, while ultrahigh resolution will be provided by adaptive optics technology. In this project, the Biomedical Imaging Group Rotterdam (BIGR) will develop advanced image processing software for the visualization and quantitative analysis of microscopic structures.
The main tasks in the project are to provide fast registration approaches to improve the quality of the images acquired and to develop advanced image analysis methods for image-based quantification. The candidate will collaborate with the other partners in the MERLIN project.
We are seeking a candidate with an MSc degree in a technological subject, such as Physics, Electrical Engineering or Computer Science. Experience with biomedical imaging, segmentation/registration techniques as well as advanced machine learning approaches such as deep learning is an advantage. You should have programming experience and be able to work in a multi-disciplinary team.
Being able to present a certificate of good conduct is a condition for the appointment.
ConditionsWe offer a temporary appointment for a maximum period of 36 months (full-time), depending (among others) on the starting date. The gross monthly salary amounts to a maximum of € 4.216,- (scale 10), depending on your level of education and relevant experience and based on a full-time working week of 36 hours. The terms of employment are in accordance with the Collective Bargaining Agreement for University Medical Centers (CAO UMC).
Additional informationFor more information about this position, please contact Dr.ir. T. van Walsum and Dr.ir. S. Klein, project leaders, phone number: +31 (0)10 704 30 51. Applications should include a curriculum vitae, a motivation of your application and a description of research interests; a list of followed courses and grades; a list of publications and copies of up to three publications (in English), e.g. your MSc thesis.
