MEDICAL IMAGE PROCESSING AND DEEP LEARNING

Location: Bordeaux, France
Start: now

Keywords: Echocardiography, Deep learning

Education: MSc/Ph.D. in computer science/mathematics/data science or similar

Experience: 5+ years

Context: 

DESKi, “learn” in Breton, is a young and innovative company, combining a solid expertise in both echography and artificial intelligence. 

Our vision is to unleash access to cardiac care by spreading ultrasound expertise.

 

After 4 years of research, we developed real-time AI-driven algorithms able to guide operators performing cardiac ultrasound exams. 

Deski is now building HeartFocus to empower any healthcare professional to accurately perform a cardiac ultrasound exam and support the interpretation of the acquired US images. 

 

Having secured its financing, DESKi will start commercialized in 2024 after the attainment of FDA and CE certification.

  • Lead the R&D team ( 3 data scientists + 1 full-stack)

  • Design ML pipelines from data collection to certified and clinically validated results

  • Lead the scientific documentation writing to support our regulatory submission to regulatory bodies ( FDA in the USA, CE mark in Europe)

  • Manage research projects, including project scoping, literature review, data collection, resource allocation, timeline management, and risk mitigation

  • Communicate project status, risks, and outcomes to stakeholders, including technical and non-technical audiences

  • Promoting research work through communication and scientific publication

 

Required skills:

  • Strong background in ML/DL applied to medical imaging(image classification, segmentation, or detection) and with Deep learning frameworks (ideally Tensorflow/Keras)

  • Scientific writing and publications in ML/DL and 

  • Project management skills, with the ability to lead a team and work collaboratively with other departments and clinicians

  • Experience in data collection and structuration 

  • Communication and presentation skills
