Title: Postdoc in medical image analysisPosted: September 26, 2019
Company/Institution: Medical University of Vienna
Location: Vienna, Austria
Department: Lab for Ophthalmic Image Analysis (OPTIMA)


We are seeking exceptionally motivated postdoc computer scientists to strengthen our interdisciplinary retinal image analysis team. You will be leading exciting projects at the interface of engineering and medicine. The focus of the research project is on automated characterization of retinal pathology from 3D OCT images of human retina, and on learning and predicting patient-specific disease progression from very large-scale multimodal imaging and non-imaging data.

The successful candidate will be immersed into an interdisciplinary environment working closely with a team of computer scientists, software engineers and medical doctors. Advancements will have a real world impact on clinical management of patients suffering from macular 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, computer vision or medical image analysis
  • Relevant publication record in the field
