HZG is one of the 19 national institutions of the Hermann von Helmholtz Association of German Research Centres e.V. (HGF). Around 1,000 employees carry out basic research and development work in close cooperation with national and international research institutions, research-oriented clinics and economic and public institutions.
At the Institute of Materials Research some 200 scientists conduct research in the five sub-institutes "Materials Mechanics", "Materials Physics", "Materials Technology", "Magnesium Innovation Centre MagIC" and "Metallic Biomaterials".
Postdoc (m/f/d)Multi-task deep learning for multimodal image analysis
Reference code: 50012250_2 – 2020/WB 1
Commencement date: as soon as possible
The place of employment is Hamburg (outstation at DESY).
Research at HZG in the field of “Metallic Biomaterials” focusses on the development of biodegradable Mg-based alloys and implants by the optimization of mechanical, biological and degradation properties for specific applications. To this end, it is crucial to understand the mechanisms governing the interactions between microstructure, mechanical properties, biology and degradation. In the long run, such an understanding will enable the manufacturing of implants tailored to the specific needs of individual patients. To achieve this, large amounts of multimodal biomedical image data (laboratory / synchrotron CT, MRI, histology, SAXS etc.) have been acquired which have to be processed and analyzed.
In order to process and analyze these multimodal data, you will develop a unified framework that enables a quick and efficient implementation and application of common image processing tasks. Within this project, we focus on the tasks of image enhancement (reduction of artefacts, noise, etc.), segmentation and registration. Multi-task learning solutions will be employed in order to simultaneously address these tasks and to exploit synergetic effects. The unified framework shall facilitate the application of these multi-task solutions across domains and modalities. The position will initially be limited to three years.
