PHD THESIS PROPOSAL: Retina Tracking and Co-Registration Concepts Using Optical Coherence Tomography and Confocal Scanning 
Laser Ophthalmoscopy
 
The Ophthalmic Technology Group of the University of Bern is looking for a PhD student as of now for a research project at the ARTORG 
Center for Biomedical Engineering Research.

The project focuses on the development and investigation of generic methods to track and co-register the retina using different image 
modalities originating from optical coherence tomography devices or confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscopes.
Of particular interest in this work are real-time capability and registration reliability of the algorithms under pathologic conditions in patients.
We are looking for a highly motivated candidate holding a Master’s degree or equivalent in electrical engineering, computer science, physics, 
or a related field with experience in digital signal and/or image processing. Background in medical image data processing and DSP algorithm 
development are an asset.
The ideal candidate has strong analytical skills and programming experience in Matlab, C/C++, or equivalent and some experience in 
electronics. For a good working communication, oral and written fluency in English is required. It is essential that the candidate is willing to work 
in a multidisciplinary and international research team. The project is supported by the Haag-Streit Foundation for a duration of three years.
 
Feel free to contact Prof. Dr. Jens Kowal, at jens.kowal at artorg.unibe.ch or 
+41 31 632 7604. Please send your complete application via e-mail.

best regards Jens Kowal
