Postdoctoral / Ph.D. researcher “Deep learning analysis of neuroimaging
The job

Amsterdam UMC (University of Amsterdam) has a vacancy for a postdoctoral
researcher. The aim of the project is to develop deep neural network (DNN)
analysis of neuroimaging data to enable neuroimaging biomarker development.
Neuroimaging data consist of thousands of features but the training of DNNs
is typically hampered by limited samples. You will use large existing
datasets (>10.000 subjects) for the development of DNN analysis and test
the resulting models in smaller samples to develop neuroimaging biomarkers
for psychiatric disorders.
Our department

The project is a collaboration with Phillips Research and funded by a
public-private partnership grant from the Netherlands Organisation for
Scientific Research (NWO). You will closely collaborate with experts in DNN
and neuroimaging data analysis from Philips. The project is embedded within
the Department of Psychiatry of the Amsterdam UMC, and you will be
supervised by Dr. Rajat Thomas (deep learning) and Prof. Guido van Wingen
Your experience

We are looking for a postdoctoral fellow with a (nearly completed) PhD in
computer science, artificial intelligence, bioinformatics, mathematics,
statistics, engineering, or related discipline. You have a strong
background in mathematics, statistics, and programming in one of the major
frameworks for deep learning like TensorFlow, Pytorch and/or Keras, and
preferably have experience with medical image analysis. You have excellent
communicative skills in written and spoken English (Dutch is a plus but not
required) and are well able to work independently as well as in a team. You
have an interest in neuroscience and developing biomedical applications,
and as postdoctoral researcher will assist in the supervision of junior
Our offer

We offer a challenging research project and excellent resources for the
duration of 1 year with a possible extension of 2 years. The starting date
is preferably around December 2018. Compensation is according to the
collective agreement (CAO-UMC), depending on education and experience. You
will be employed by AMC Medical Research BV.
