Open PhD positions for Domain Shifts in Pediatric brain MRI

Position: Ph.D. Student

Deadline: 1 September 2023

Employment Start Date: 1 September 2023

Contract Length: 4years

City: Lausanne

Country: Switzerland

Institution: Lausanne University Hospital (CHUV) & Lausanne University (UNIL), Switzerland

Department: Radiology Reserach Center


The two PhD positions are funded by the Swiss National Research Foundation in Switzerland which supported the research project “Tackling domain shifts in pediatric neuroimaging: bridging advanced computational MR techniques and clinical practice” (205320215641). The project tackles these two important domain shifts in pediatric MRI, linked to the magnetic field strengths and to population gaps. The PhD candidate will develop deep learning approaches, primarily in the areas of generative modeling and representation learning to overcome domainshift robust methods for motion estimation, superresolution reconstruction and
segmentation of fetal and newborn brain MRI. The developed methods will be applied at lowfield (0.55T) and high field (1.5T and 3T) MRI acquisitions.
