Starting date: 01/02/2024 or soon after

 The Lamylab at University of Geneva is seeking a talented and driven postdoc to join an international collaborative project (Archimed) as a Bioimage Analyst.

The ArchiMed project (“Mining medical archives and pathological collections in the digital age”) aims at transforming historical human histopathological tissue collections in modern, digitally operated research biobanks. The successful candidate will develop AI-based image processing tools to perform automated histopathological analysis of microscopic images. The first indication will be in neuropathology, but will also extend to other tissue types. The candidate will work closely with the Geneva Brain Bank and a multidisciplinary team comprising clinicians, pathologists, historians, molecular biologists, bioinformaticians, and statisticians based in Geneva and Strasbourg.

The position is funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation for up to 3 years in the first instance.
