Post-doctoral and Research Engineer Positions in Computer
Vision/Artificial Intelligence for Healthcare @ University of
Strasbourg, France

We are looking for post-doctoral fellows and research engineers in
Computer Vision / Artificial Intelligence to join the development of our
clinical prototypes aiming at monitoring patient and clinician safety
during image-guided interventions. The project involves the perception
of the Operating Room through a set of RGB-D cameras mounted on the
ceiling as well as the recognition of surgical activities using both
RGB-D and endoscopic videos.

A better idea of our research can be
obtained from our website as well as from the illustrative videos below:

  – Deep Learning for the Live Analysis of Endoscopic Procedures: https://www.youtube.com/embed//zfZ1UrI_84g
  – Computer Vision and Augmented Reality for X-ray Monitoring:  https://www.youtube.com/embed/JpATPDrXvu8
  – Human Body Tracking in the Operating Room using RGB-D Data: https://www.youtube.com/embed/iabbGSqRSgE

The successful candidates will be responsible for the development of the
demonstration prototypes and for their introduction to a hybrid
operating room at IHU Strasbourg, a novel surgical institute with brand
new facilities. Their main tasks will be to

  – develop new methods and integrate existing methods for  activity recognition/prediction in surgical videos, person detection/tracking, or augmented reality
  – improve the existing prototypes to meet real-time requirements

  – develop clinician-friendly graphical user interfaces

Proficiency in English is mandatory for this position since the
development of the prototypes will involve communication with the
clinical and industrial partners of the project.


  – Research engineer: Master in Computer Science or equivalent. PhD is
welcome for research engineer positions but not mandatory

  – Post-doctoral fellow: PhD in Computer Science or equivalent

  – Strong C++ programming skills with experience in Computer
Vision/Machine Learning or 3D visualization

  – Proficiency in English (oral and written)

  – Knowledge/experience in GPGPU, Deep Learning or Qt 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 will 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 offering unique
clinical facilities.

The position is available as soon as possible for an initial duration of
one year with the possibility to extend. The position will be open
until an excellent candidate is found. The net salary is competitive and
ranges from ~2000Euros/month to ~2500Euros/month depending on prior

To apply, please send a long CV and a motivation letter
describing your experience in computer vision to Nicolas Padoy (npadoy
_AT_ unistra.fr).
