OPTIMA Lab (http://optima.meduniwien.ac.at 
<http://optima.meduniwien.ac.at/>) is seeking an exceptionally motivated 
post-doc to strengthen our interdisciplinary medical image analysis 
team. You will be leading exciting projects in the domain of machine 
learning for healthcare.

The focus of the research project is on automated characterization of 
retinal pathology from 3D optical coherence tomography (OCT) images of 
human eye, and on learning and predicting patient-specific disease 
progression from very large-scale multimodal imaging and electronic 
health records data sets.

The successful candidate will be immersed into an interdisciplinary 
environment working closely with a team of post-docs and PhD students, 
research engineers and medical doctors. Advancements will have a real 
world impact on clinical management of patients suffering from retinal 
diseases, a leading cause of blindness today

Your profile:
- PhD degree (or soon to be completed) in a relevant discipline 
(computer science, applied mathematics or related field)
- Strong background in machine and deep learning, medical image 
computing or computer vision
- Relevant publication record in the field
- Excellent programming skills (Python, Julia, C/C++)
- Excellent analytical, interpersonal, as well as written and oral 
communication skills in English are essential

- Your cover letter with a summary of your previous and present 
scientific activities and your motivations
- CV
- The 2 most significant publications
- Contact information of at least two references

Please send applications to: hrvoje.bogunovic (at) meduniwien.ac.at

interdisciplinary research lab composed of retinal specialists, computer 
scientists and software engineers, developing innovative image analysis 
methods for precision medicine in retinal disease. Our research focus 
lies on the quantitative analysis of state-of-the-art ophthalmic imaging 
data, in particular OCT, and the development of prognostic disease 
models for improved patient management in leading eye diseases. The lab 
has access to extremely large sets of ophthalmic images and is 
well-equipped with a dedicated high-performance computing cluster 
containing the latest generation GPUs. The group keeps close 
collaboration with several high-performance academic research 
institutions, as well as partnership with imaging device and 
pharmaceutical companies.

Medical University of Vienna is an international center of excellence 
and one of the largest research institutions in Europe located at the 
heart of historic Vienna. Vienna has recently been named the world's
