Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena - Institute for Physical Chemistry
The Institute of Physical Chemistry is a spectroscopy-oriented research institute with a focus on the development, application and theoretical description of innovative frequency-, time- and spatially-resolved spectroscopic methods from the UV to the radio wave range.
Photonic data science (m/f/d)
The "Leibniz Center for Photonics in Infection Research" (LPI) in Jena is an open user center where photonic solutions for diagnostics, monitoring and experimental therapy in infections are researched and developed into functional solutions with industry. The LPI was jointly applied for by the Leibniz Institute for Photonic Technologies Jena e.V. (Leibniz-IPHT), the Leibniz Institute for Natural Product Research and Infection Biology - Hans Knöll Institute (Leibniz-HKI) as well as the University Hospital Jena and the Friedrich Schiller University Jena under the patronage of the Leibniz Association. The PhD student for photonic data science researches methods for extracting biomedical information from photonic data at LPI.
Investigation of data pre-treatment and data standardization via inverse modeling for different photonic techniques
Implementation and exploration of adapted machine learning techniques for spectral technologies and imaging methods
Investigation of model interpretation techniques and model transfer techniques / transfer learning
Research on data fusion techniques of different data
Master's degree in scientific, mathematical or computer science fields
Knowledge of data science, data simulation, and data
Experience with programming languages such as Python, R or Matlab
Good English language skills are a prerequisite
Experience with photonic data, such as spectroscopic data and optical image data, would be desirable
