Postdoc in Image processing of high-dimensional brain imaging data (2 years)
Job description

The Department of Biomedical Engineering and Health Systems at KTH is recruiting a two-year post-doctoral fellow in Image processing of high-dimensional brain imaging data.

Medical imaging modalities such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) often produce complex image data in vector or tensor format, e.g. diffusion MRI or functional MRI. For the computationally demanding post-processing of such data, we use modern machine learning techniques like convolutional neural networks, graph convolutional networks and reinforcement learning. This project will deal with developing, adapting and applying such techniques to imaging data from patients with neurodegenerative diseases, available to us thanks to our close cooperation with Karolinska Institute.

dBRAIN is an interdisciplinary initiative at KTH to better understand neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease. We combine brain imaging, machine learning, topological data analysis and computational modelling of biological neuronal networks at multiple scales to identify causal links among disease biomarkers and disease symptoms. This understanding should improve diagnosis, prediction of the disease progression and suggest better therapies.

The position is financed by Digital Futures<https://www.digitalfutures.kth.se/>

What we offer

  *   A position at a leading technical university that generates knowledge and skills for a sustainable future
  *   Engaged and ambitious colleagues along with a creative, international and dynamic working environment
