Postdoctoral Deep Learning Scientist for Cardiovascular Imaging

RDM Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford, OX3 9DU

We are seeking a highly motivated Postdoctoral Researcher to join the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine in close interaction with the Big Data Institute, and work closely with an interdisciplinary team of machine learning scientists, MR scientists (Prof. SK Piechnik) and cardiologists (Prof. VM Ferreira). Recent deep learning breakthroughs have provided a new perspective to rethink contrast enhancement in medical imaging. You will develop novel generative AI to enhance CMR without intravenous contrast, to detect myocardial pathologies (especially diffuse fibrosis) beyond the current diagnostic capabilities of cardiovascular imaging.

Your responsibilities will include making a significant contribution to deep learning methodology for cardiovascular imaging, by developing novel deep learning algorithms, especially deep generative models, to unveil and assess pathological signals in CMR imaging. You will also develop and implement the latest deep learning models for CMR imaging and data analysis, using programming languages such as Python, TensorFlow, Keras and PyTorch.

You are required to hold or be close to complete a higher degree (DPhil/PhD) in a relevant area of research and have strong deep learning and machine learning programming skills. Experience in CMR image processing, good understanding of CMR scanning protocols would be desirable.

This is a full-time appointment on a fixed term contract for 3 years funded by BHF and you will be based at the University of Oxford Centre for Clinical Magnetic Resonance Research (OCMR), Level 0, John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford, OX3 9DU. You will also have access to computing resources, facilities and networking at the Oxford Big Data Institute.

Applications for this vacancy are to be made online; you will be required to upload a CV and supporting statement (up to 2 pages) which explains how you meet the selection criteria for the post.

Only applications received before 12.00 midday on 10th May 2024 can be considered. Interviews are scheduled take to place on 31st May 2024.
