  • At least 3 years of research experience in the field of MR physics, sequence development and image reconstruction.
  • Strong background in inverse problems and regularization as well as in MR physics.
  • Knowledgeable in IDEA programming environment of the Siemens MR scanners and basic experience in sequence programming.
  • Strong programming skills, good knowledge of C++, Python, Matlab and neuroimaging software will be a plus.
  • Hands-on experience with in vitro and in vivo MR scanning
  • Excellent verbal and written skills in English.
  • Rigorous work habits, a curious and critical mind, and a good sense of initiative.
  • A high-level perseverance and a strong personal commitment are expected.
  • Experience in student and/or researchers supervision.

We offer:

  • a multidisciplinary project between cutting-edge brain imaging and advanced image processing, MR physics, and clinical context.

2 PhD students for «Quantitative MR imaging of the in-vivo fetal brain»

 

We are looking for two motivated students for a PhD candidacy positions (4 years funding with annual renewal of contract) at the Medical Image Analysis Laboratory of the Radiology Department and Center for Biomedical Imaging, Lausanne University.

 

Description: We look for two PhD student candidates that will work jointly with a post-doctoral researcher expert in MR physics and under the direction of Dr. Meritxell Bach Cuadra. The two PhD thesis projects are:

  1. the development machine learning segmentation methods for the fetal brain analysis and their integration to a joint segmentation-super-resolution reconstruction of T2-weighted and T2 quantitative images of the fetal brain.
  2. The development of an image processing pipeline for the super-resolution reconstruction of diffusion fetal brain MRI, including the exploration of new acquisition schemes on phantom data.

Your profile:

  • You should have a master's (MSc) degree in physics, computer science, or electrical engineering, or similar degree with an equivalent academic level.
  • A genuine interest in signal and image processing and machine learning techniques is a must.
  • Strong mathematical background.
  • Good programing skills in C++, ITK and Python (knowledge of MevisLab is a plus).
  • Prior exposure to medical imaging and or neuroimaging is a plus.
  • Good skills in English (oral and written).
  • Rigorous work habits, a curious and critical mind, and a good sense of initiative.
  • A high-level perseverance and a strong personal commitment are expected.
