Our group is working on data-intensive problems in biomedicine by combining machine learning, statistical and other computational methods. Image data and deep learning solutions are a major part of our research. All projects involve collaboration with experimental and medical partners located in Cologne and at the Charité University Hospital Berlin.
We are currently looking for a PhD candidate to join our collaborative project on chronic kidney disease. The tasks will involve devising computational methods for analysis of kidney structures imaged with super-resolution microscopy in 3D as well as automating nephropathology procedures using deep learning. Our collaboration partners include medical as well as microscopy experts located in Cologne and Freiburg. We offer work in a stimulating, interdisciplinary environment in the heart of cosmopolitan, historical city.
