Two PhD Positions in Computer Vision/Artificial Intelligence for 
Healthcare @ University of Strasbourg, France

The operating room is a high-tech environment in which the equipment 
generates a lot of data about the underlying surgical activities. Our 
research group aims at making use of this large amount of multi-modal 
data coming from both cameras and surgical devices to develop an 
artificial intelligence system that can assist the clinicians and staff 
in the surgical workflow. In this scope, we currently have two open PhD 
positions that will focus on developing new machine learning and 
computer vision methods to detect, recognize and analyze human 
activities. The successful candidates will have the rare opportunity to 
apply their work on large RGB-D and endoscopic video datasets captured 
during real procedures using the state-of-the-art facilities of our 
clinical partners. If interested, they will also have the exceptional 
possibility to collaborate with engineers and clinicians to implement 
real-time clinical demonstrators of their research, thereby contributing 
to the development of real-world AI-based solutions for the OR.

More information about our research is available on our website:

   Strong C++ programming skills
   Experience in computer vision and machine learning
   Proficiency in English (oral and written)
   Experience in GPGPU programming and Deep Learning is a plus

The position is located in Strasbourg, France. Strasbourg is a lively, 
green and cosmopolitan city situated in the heart of Europe and is also 
home to the European parliament. The successful candidate will work with 
the research group CAMMA and be hosted within the IRCAD institute at the 
University Hospital of Strasbourg. He/She will thereby have direct 
contact with clinicians, industrial partners and also have access to an 
exceptional international research environment.

   Cutting­-edge research in an interdisciplinary and leading 
international research environment
   Ability to work at the forefront of a rapidly growing field at the 
intersection of computer science, artificial intelligence and medicine
