STI - Postdoctoral Position in Deep Learning Applied to Optical Imaging

EmployerSwiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne, EPFL
WorkplaceLausanne, Lake Geneva region, Switzerland
CategoryPhysics / Materials Science
PositionSenior Researcher / Postdoc



The Laboratory of Optics (LO) at EPFL Lausanne has a postdoctoral opening for the study of optical imaging using deep learning techniques. Learning techniques opens many new research opportunities in optical imaging and several groups have joined the community. Recent studies, from our group and also others, have demonstrated the potential of using neural networks for improving the reconstructions.

The postdoctoral scholar will develop numerical algorithms based on learning theory to optimize the solution considering different types of prior information. The work will be carried out in collaboration with PhD candidates in LO working on simulations and experiments.


  • PhD degree in computer sciences or engineering.
  • Solid background in deep learning techniques.
  • Strong interest and experience in teamwork, supervision of graduate students, and project coordination.
  • Previous experience in optics, vision, or imaging is an asset.
  • Proficiency in written and spoken English.


  • Access to world class research facilities.
  • Entering a dynamic and diverse team of highly motivated students and scientists doing research in an interdisciplinary field.
  • A full-time contract for a period of one year with possibility of extension.
  • A competitive salary according to EPFL salary scale.

The start date for this position is January 1st, 2018. If interested, please send your application package including a cover letter, last diploma obtained and a CV with publications and referees lists to info.lo [at] epfl[.]ch.
