PhD student “Deep learning analysis of neuroimaging data”
The job

Amsterdam UMC (University of Amsterdam) has a vacancy for a PhD student.
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 highly talented and dedicated PhD student with a
(nearly completed) Master’s degree in a computer science, artificial
intelligence, bioinformatics, mathematics, statistics, engineering, or
related discipline. You have a strong background in mathematics,
statistics, and programming, preferably 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 good communicative skills
and are well able to work independently as well as in a team. You are
proficient in English in speech and writing. Dutch is a plus but not
Our offer

We offer a challenging research project and excellent resources for the
duration of 4 years. The starting date is preferably around December 2018.
Compensation is according to the collective agreement (CAO-UMC), and
amounts from EUR 2.279,- gross per month in the first year to EUR 2.919,-
in the fourth year. You will be employed by AMC Medical Research BV.
Your application

For more information, please contact Dr. Rajat Thomas (r.m.thomas at amc.nl)
or Prof. Guido van Wingen (g.a.vanwingen at amc.nl). Please apply online
before September 8 at
