PhD positions/scholarships in Machine Learning and Deep Learning

Two funded PhD positions/scholarships are available at the College of Science and Engineering, Flinders University, Australia. The research area is in Machine Learning and Deep Learning. Projects are described below.
Project A:  Deep Learning for medical image modality This project will exploit Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) for the synthesis of Head MRI from Head CT/multi-energy CT scan. We will focus the clinical applications in head stroke detection and diagnosis, traumatic brain injury, and brain cancer.
Project B: Machine Learning for airport baggage inspection Baggage inspection is a measure to prevent the transportation of prohibited and dangerous goods and is a critical element of airport security. There is a growing need in delivering sufficient but more flexible security and ensure a more positive passenger experience. This project will use machine learning and deep learning approaches in processing and analysing 2D and 3D x-ray images for baggage check, thus building a resilient, efficient, and intelligent system for airport security.

Essential and Desirable Criteria: Candidates with a relevant background (e.g. Medical Image Analysis, Computer Vision, Computer Science, ICT and Engineering, Mathematics and Statistics) are invited to apply. Positions are open to Australian and International students.
For project A, working knowledge of deep learning architectures, GANs and python is essential. Working knowledge of Matlab is desirable. Previous research experience with medical images e.g. CT and MRI images is beneficial.
For project B, working knowledge of Computer Vision and Machine Learning in images is essential.  Competent in programming languages such as Matlab and python. Previous research experience with CT images is beneficial.
The successful candidate will work under the supervision of Dr Gobert Lee and Dr Mariusz Bajger and must be able to work independently and as part of the group. Collaboration with academic, clinical, and industrial partners will be required. The successful candidate must also demonstrate excellent oral and written communication skills.

The PhD positions/scholarships:

  *   Scholarship stipend $28,854 (2022 full-time rate) per year for 3 years (max 3.5 years)
  *   Projects are expected to commence before June, 2022 (commence date maybe negotiable)

For information and to apply, please send email to Gobert.lee at flinders.edu.au<mailto:Gobert.lee at flinders.edu.au>. Application please include: 1) a current CV and your transcripts 2) a cover letter outlining your interest in, and suitability for, this project; and 3) the names and contact details for two academic/industrial referees. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis.

Best regards,
Dr Gobert Lee
College of Science and Engineering, Flinders University, Australia
