UiT: Researcher in Medical Image Analysis


UiT is seeking a researcher which is keen on shaping the health care of the future by the development of novel machine learning and AI solutions for medical image analysis. This is one of the most important areas for realizing the impact of AI for the wellbeing of people. This field of research is interdisciplinary as it entails collaboration with clinicians and health care providers as well as the development and validation of new deep learning-based image analysis methodology.

The position will entail a special responsibility to be the UiT Machine Learning Group’s main resource for contributing to the aforementioned Horizon Europe project for the development and validation of AI algorithms for diagnosis support by colon capsule endoscopy (CCE) to detect and treat colorectal cancer. The AI algorithms will primarily be based on development of new variants of convolutional neural networks particularly tailored for the task at hand. This research has a great potential to innovate colorectal cancer screening, to potentially save lives, and to substantially reduce the burden upon clinical services.

The researcher will also contribute to other medical image analysis projects in Visual Intelligence and will interact with the other researchers in the centre and in the UiT Machine Learning Group.
