Two postdoc positions at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in joint project between WASP and DDLS.

Job description

We are currently looking for two postdocs, one with the focus on optical microscopy of live cells and one on machine learning, for a joint project between the Department of Applied Physics and the Division of Robotics, Perception and Learning at KTH.

The goal of this project is to explore advanced microscopy methods in combination with recent methods in deep learning to identify cells with particular functional properties, such as immune cells and their abilities to kill tumor cells. We will exploit methods that have shown promising results in other application areas, but further develop and refine them for biomedical imaging. To automatically identify and harvest cells with certain functional properties has far-reaching potential benefits.

The project is financed by the two large research programs in Sweden, the Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program (WASP), and the SciLifeLab and Wallenberg National Program for Data-Driven Life Science (DDLS), with the joint goal to solve ground-breaking research questions across disciplines.
