Project Description

This project will work with the largest dataset of medical images for coronary arteries surrounding the heart in more than 1200 patients.

Responsibilities evolve around the development of suitable machine learning algorithms to identify early risk markers in medical images. This will help to implement new preventative mechanisms in clinical practice aimed to safe patient lives.

Strong problem-solving skills are required and the interest in and willingness to learn about cardiovascular physiology is important.

This position is suitable for students from computer sciences or engineering and a strong interest in machine learning. Previous research experience is highly desired.

UNSW is the top engineering University in Australia, and top 35th in the world. It is reknown for being progressive and inclusive, highly valuing diverse student and staff cohort.

Female top-up scholarships are available for $10,000 per annum.
Additional internal tutor opportunities to top up your living allowance are available all year around at $56 per hour.
