Postdoctoral Fellow

Machine learning for detector development, 80 - 100 %

Your tasks

You will be working on improving the spatial resolution of hybrid pixel detectors for electron microscopy applications using machine learning methods. You will develop the machine learning models and you will acquire experimental data with state-of-the art detectors and electron microscopes at PSI to train the algorithms and evaluate their performance. Your tasks will be:

  • Implement machine learning techniques in collaboration with the Swiss Data Science Centre (SDSC) to improve the spatial resolution of hybrid pixel detectors in electron microscopy
  • Collect experimental data with an electron microscope to generate training datasets and evaluate the performance of the machine learning models for real experiments
  • Coordinate the collaboration between the photon science detector group, the electron microscopy facility at PSI and the SDSC
