PhD position: development and automation of the reconstruction software and evaluation software for the multi-center study with 3D ultrasound computer tomography
3D ultrasound tomography is an innovative method for breast cancer diagnosis developed at KIT. The advantages are the radiation-free measurement of three tissue properties for the diagnosis as well as their 3D representation. After first promising clinical studies, a large multi-center study in the People's Republic of China will now be carried out in cooperation with an industrial partner. For this purpose, within three years, several customized devices are built and the necessary firmware and control software are developed. At the same time CE marking, medical approval in China and industrial series production are being prepared.
As part of your work you are responsible for the development and automation of the reconstruction software and evaluation software for the multi-center study with 3D ultrasound computer tomography. You will conduct tests, further develop the reflection and transmission reconstruction, and participate in the statistical evaluation and publication of the multi-center study.
You have a university degree (Diplom (Uni) / Master) in the field of electrical engineering, computer science, physics or engineering. It is desirable to have experience in the development of medical software and application of case study design software, breast cancer diagnosis research and medical imaging techniques, as well as common 3D USCT reconstruction algorithms. Very good German and English skills are obligatory. Knowledge in Mandarin completes your profile.
