The postdoctoral position will formally be located at the Department of Computational Science and Computing, CST, at KTH, but the practical work will be performed at the Science for Life Laboratory. CST conducts computer science research and modeling in biological and physical systems. This requires efficient and advanced algorithms as well as image analysis systems. For more information about ongoing work, see .


SciLifeLab is a national center for molecular biosciences focusing on research in health and the environment. The center combines leading technical expertise with advanced knowledge in translational medicine and molecular biosciences. Our goal is also to build a strong research group around SciLifeLab through education and collaboration. SciLifeLab is a national resource run by Karolinska Institutet, KTH, Stockholm University and Uppsala University. We cooperate with several other Swedish universities.

This position is part of a collaboration with a doctor from Karolinska University Hospital. The main task is to develop deep learning methods for analyzing medical images focusing on breast cancer. The successful applicant will apply his / her knowledge of deep learning to several types of medical images, including histological sections, mammograms and possibly others. In general, the goal is to predict patient outcomes, but we aim to develop models for specific predictors of patient outcomes, such as biomarkers for tumor heterogeneity and risk models. In addition to these medical applications, the successful candidate will also participate in theoretical research in deep learning and computer vision.


The position is initially funded for one year, with the possibility of renewal depending on funding and eligibility.




The candidate must have a doctorate in computer science, computational science or a related field obtained within three years before the end of the application period. Proven knowledge and ability in one or more deep learning frameworks (Tensorflow, Keras, Torch, Caffe, etc.) is absolutely necessary. It also requires knowledge of common computer vision techniques and experience in implementing, analyzing and optimizing scientific image analysis applications. Knowledge in one or two scientific computational languages (Python, Matlab, R) is required. Experience of parallel programming environments and cloud computing is a plus. Past experiences that work with medical or biological images are also desirable.
