PhD student position on machine learning and 3D mammography (tomosynthesis)

Tomosynthesis is a promising 3D modality for diagnosing breast cancer. Deep learning is the most successful form of artificial intelligence (AI). The aim of this project is to utilize a unique database of tomosynthesis and mammography images and new methods in deep learning to create novel diagnostic tools for breast cancer. The position offers good opportunities to gain deeper knowledge of recent techniques in deep learning such as generative adversarial networks (GAN), spherical convolutional neural networks or normal appearance autoencoders, a method developed in our group, in addition to explainable-AI and uncertainty quantification methods. The selected candidate will be part of the EU-funded European Training Network consortium BosomShield. That includes access to educational and career development activities from the network and several secondment visits to the partners.
