Imperial College LondonDepartment of Electrical and Electronics Engineering & Imperial-X
Applications are invited for a PhD studentship in the field of machine learning in medical imaging, which will be jointly hosted by Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering and the College’s new I-X initiative. The PhD position is partially funded for international students and fully funded for home student (UK). It is especially targeted at PhD applicants with an interest in artificial intelligence and healthcare. The successful candidate will also join the Biomedical Image Analysis Group (https://biomedia.doc.ic.ac.uk/).
The PhD research will explore the important topics of machine learning solutions for improving medical imaging workflow. Particularly, the research project will focus on investigating advanced deep learning approaches for inverse problems. It will develop approaches that can incorporate explicit prior knowledge into deep learning methods for data-efficient and interpretable learning. The aim of the research is to combine the best of knowledge-driven and data-driven approaches for inverse medical imaging problems, such as image reconstruction and image registration. The research is at the intersection of artificial intelligence and healthcare and has the potential to make significant positive impact on society by improving patient care through better diagnosis and treatment.
Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering has a long and proud history of world-class research and innovation and is at the forefront of tackling the most urgent global challenges in energy, healthcare, smart technology, and communications. It ranked the 1st in the UK (Engineering) in REF 2021 based on the proportion of world-leading research (4*).
I-X (Imperial-X) is a new collaborative environment for research, education, and entrepreneurship across the areas of artificial intelligence, machine learning, data science, statistics, and digital technologies. The goal of I-X is to realise new models for research, education, and entrepreneurship that go beyond traditional siloes imposed by academic disciplines, thus forming a blueprint for the university of the future. I-X benefits from a strategic investment by the College, which includes new facilities on Imperial’s White City and South Kensington campuses.
