Machine learning techniques are quickly becoming indispensable in medical and scientific imaging because of their often unmatched speed and accuracy, and because of the increasing amount of data that need to be analyzed and interpreted. Despite the recent improvements, however, these techniques still pose a considerable technical challenge and a steep learning curve to non-expert users.
As software developer/engineer by training you will repurpose, develop and implement advanced machine learning algorithms and pipelines for scientific and medical image analysis. The pipelines will be deployed to an open-source and open-access, cloud-based platform, with the major goal of providing straightforward access to image analysis capacity, based on reusable machine-learning algorithms, to non-expert scientists and medical specialists worldwide. There is a considerable chance for extension of the project beyond 24 months in case of excellent performance.
You will join the Department of Medical Biology, Amsterdam UMC, location AMC, and will be embedded in the Cellular Imaging Core Facility – a large microscopy facility with more than 500 users and access to state-of-the-art imaging technologies, datasets and scientifically-relevant questions. The project will be directly supervised by Dr. Ron Hoebe, microscopy and software development expert, but it is a joint venture of multiple Dutch imaging and microscopy centers. The candidate will, therefore, work together with experts in various areas of advanced microscopy and data sciences.
