Vacancies & Student projects

Vacancy

Development and validation of machine-learning based histopathologic skin cancer diagnostics for real-world clinical practice

Are you a creative researcher with a MSc degree in Computer/Data Science, Engineering, Technical Medicine, Biomedical Sciences or similar? Do you want to contribute to the world’s first prospectively evaluated algorithm-supported workflow for digital pathology, which will increase the time of pathologists for complex diagnostics and reduce the wait time for patients? Then we are looking for you!

Student project

Deep Learning to predict recurrence in triple negative breast cancer (TNBC)

Aim of the presently proposed ‘proof of concept‘ study is to develop digital pattern recognition algorithms (more specifically: deep neural networks) for the extraction of morphological features from scanned H&E stained tissue sections from TNBC which are indicative for the risk of recurrence.
