Software Developer

Updated: 2 months ago
Deadline: 20 Nov 2022

Are you interested in AI for 3D Imaging, and can you take a central role in creating an image analysis platform that links AI and 3D Imaging connecting software development with research? Then read on!

We are looking for a talented and energetic software developer to work on creating an image analysis platform that links AI and 3D imaging. In this position you will implement and test DTU software tools, customize software scripts, and create automatic image analysis pipelines and interfaces.

AI-based deep learning has tremendous potential for analysis of 3D images, and 3D imaging poses a range of difficult and unsolved problems that will lead to new fields of AI research. The 3D images are volumetric scans using µCT, which is widely used for investigating biological systems and understanding the structure of materials. To facilitate research in AI and 3D imaging, we will establish a platform to deploy and develop new deep learning algorithms for large-scale 3D images. With this position, you will become a key person in a small team of IT experts that will design and implement the platform in close collaboration with the researchers that will use the platform. If you want to take part in developing the foundation for the next generation of deep learning image analysis techniques for 3D data, this job could be just for you.

You should have a background in data science or experience in working with data science related projects. This can be experience with image analysis, machine learning, or another field of data analysis, such that you understand the needs in AI research and experimental 3D imaging.

The project concerned with building this platform is part of the Section for Visual Computing and the QIM Center for Quantification of Imaging Data from MAX IV at DTU Compute. In addition to working with the people at DTU Compute you will come in to contact with many collaborators and potential users and it will be part of your job to handle a complex stakeholder landscape in terms of scope, technical issues, as well as implementation and user experience.

The job
You will be part of a group of 2-3 IT experts for building a platform for data storage and analysis, and your role will be to design solutions and test these solutions based on feedback from the users. There will be two groups using this platform. One will be researchers in deep learning for 3D image analysis, who have computer science expertise. The other is imaging researchers, with less experience in computer science. It is, however, essential that the platform meets the needs of both groups, and a core task is to involve the users, understand their needs, and use this as a basis for building the platform.

The image analysis platform will create value when it is used by researchers. Therefore, there is a need for instructing and educating users, and creating material that supports using the platform. All this will be done in close collaboration with researchers in image analysis.

Research in deep learning methods is driven by data. A central part of the work will be to curate data for developing new deep learning methods. This includes implementing state-of-the-art deep learning algorithms and making them available for users, creating labeled data for training and test of deep learning methods, and creating a platform for running and assessing the performance of deep learning methods.

The image analysis platform is part of QIM – the Center for Quantification of Imaging Data from MAX IV, which is affiliated with the 3D Imaging Center at DTU. QIM is a collaboration between DTU, University of Copenhagen, Lund University, and MAX IV, but aims at supporting 3D image analysis beyond the involved universities. Our analysis platform will become a core element in our ambitions of being an internationally recognized science hub within data analysis for 3D imaging.

Our expectations of you
We expect you to have experience with working on complex IT projects with internal and external stakeholders. Ideally, you will have a PhD or a MSc in data science. You should have a strong problem-solving mindset, a drive to learn and collaborate, and experience in finding good solutions for complex IT projects.

The preferred skills are:

  • A background in data science and experience with analyzing images.
  • Strong programming skills.
  • Experience with software development and testing.
  • Experience with deep learning.

Primary activities the position will include are:

  • Solution design with stakeholders,
  • Coordinating with researchers working in 3D image analysis,
  • Developing, implementing, and testing software solutions with your team, including deep learning-based analysis tools,
  • Preparing and sharing 3D image data for deep learning,
  • Instructing and supporting the use of the analysis platform.

You should enjoy making a team of specialists work together to solve advanced tasks. The tasks are defined by the needs of diverse research communities, and it is therefore essential that you are pragmatic and focused on finding solutions that enables scientists to carry out their research. We expect you to be good a communicating and a team-oriented person with great problem-solving skills. You are enthusiastic about working in a research environment and keen to take part in developing the foundation for the next generation of deep learning image analysis techniques and the scientific work it will facilitate.
