Postdoctoral position in ‘Automated skin lesion detection and severity classification using image analysis and machine learning’

Unique opportunity to boost your career in Switzerland as an outstanding researcher.

We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher who is an expert in image analysis and machine learning including deep learning. This project is about developing image analysis and machine learning algorithms for the automated skin lesion detection and severity classification in dermatological diseases. We are focusing primarily on psoriasis, an autoimmune skin disease with a severe quality of life impact. A first version of the algorithm has been developed, demonstrating the feasibility of this approach, and a set of images is available to continue the development and the training of the algorithms. The project will be done in collaboration with the EPFL Lausanne and with several Swiss University Hospital for the access of medical expertise and patient image data.

Requirements
This project requires excellent computational skills in general and in particular in image analysis, advanced machine learning and deep learning. Programming will be done in Matlab, R and/or Python. iOS programming skills can be advantageous in order to implement basic image recording apps for patient images.

Position
This is a two-year postdoctoral position.
