Expert in 3D Image Processing with AI-Enabled Methods

Are you excited about the prospects of machine learning and artificial intelligence? Do you relish opportunities to tackle tough challenges and come up with creative solutions on your own?

Then we might just have the job for you!

As a member of the Innovative System Design group, you will research innovative 3D image processing solutions (including segmentation of 3D CT voxel data sets) based on current machine learning methods. To this end, you will develop software and algorithms and apply them to large voxel data sets generated by the high-energy XXL CT at the Fürth site. You will also collaborate with customers to prototype the algorithms you have developed.

What we expect from you

  • A university degree in an engineering, technology or science-related field
  • Good knowledge of machine learning, deep learning and/or current reinforcement learning methods
  • Proficiency in Python
  • The ability to distribute large amounts of data across computing clusters
  • Experience with relevant libraries (e.g. TensorFlow, Caffe, Theano, Keras)
  • Knowledge of computer vision and OpenCV; tracking and SLAM skills are an advantage
  • The ability to think analytically and handle complexity
  • A passion for scientific investigations and scientific methodology
  • Very good oral and written communication skills in both German and English
