PhD Position in Biomedical Image Analysis
Biomedical Computer Vision Group, University of Heidelberg and DKFZ, Germany
The research group Biomedical Computer Vision (BMCV) at the University of
Heidelberg and the DKFZ currently offers a PhD position in the field of
Biomedical Image Analysis. The task is the development of innovative
methods for automated analysis of 3D microscopy images. Focus is on the
segmentation and quantification of cells and subcellular structures in
3D volume images with the aim is to improve medical diagnosis and therapy.
The work is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF)
and carried out in close cooperation with biomedical partners at Heidelberg
University Hospital and the DKFZ Heidelberg.
The BMCV group develops methods and algorithms for automated analysis
of biological and medical images, in particular, cell microscopy images
and medical tomographic images. A wide spectrum of methods is
investigated including segmentation, tracking, registration, and machine
learning. The group achieved excellent results in recent international
competitions on tracking.
Candidates must have a Master’s (Diploma) degree in Computer Science,
Electrical Engineering, Medical Informatics, Biomedical Engineering,
Bioinformatics, Applied Mathematics, Physics, or a related discipline.
We expect experience in Image Analysis as well as good mathematical
and programming skills. Candidates should be highly motivated,
team-minded, and interested in interdisciplinary research.
