Text: Doctoral candidate specializing in physics or a comparable subject (19-158-6) Friday, 6. December 2019 The Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) is the National Metrology Institute of the Federal Republic of Germany with scientific and technical service tasks. It furthers progress and reliability in metrology for society, the economy and science. In Department 6.2, Dosimetry for Radiation Therapy and Diagnostic Radiology, of Division 6, we are looking for a doctoral candidate specializing in physics or a comparable subject to join us as soon as possible.

Among other things, Department 6.2 deals with the development and application of novel procedures for the quantification of the image quality of imaging procedures using ionizing radiation. Within the scope of the PTB-internal research project entitled "Deep learning for medical imaging in metrology", three departments of PTB as well as numerous external partners from universities, research institutes and reference centers from Germany and the Netherlands work in close cooperation. One part of the project focuses on applying the deep-learning method to determine the quality of the images obtained in X-ray diagnostics with the particular challenge of taking the assessment of the image quality by a human (radiologist) into account with regard to the detection of conspicuous structures in the image (lesion, tumor or similar). The highly topical and application-oriented PhD thesis is to be carried out in close cooperation with the project partners, in particular with the Dutch colleagues from Nijmegen and Leiden, and in close exchange with the other PTB departments involved. For the activities planned, an excellently equipped computer cluster is available. Images as training data sets can be generated by means of the department's X-ray facilities and of the 64-slice research CT scanner. Furthermore, images can be provided through close cooperation with reference centers and hospitals.
