Deep learning developer

(Startersfunctie voor Informatica, Informatiekunde, Natuurkunde, Wiskunde)

As a deep learning developer at MRIguidance, a UMC Utrecht spin-off company, you will apply the newest deep learning methods on unique 3D medical image data sets of real patients to develop algorithms that characterize human anatomy and aid doctors and patients in hospitals worldwide.

What you tell at birthdays about your job
“My software prevents cancer in patients that need to undergo a bone scan. It creates images that help doctors to better diagnose and cure their patients.”

What you actually will be doing

You will be a key contributor to the core development of our MRI data analysis pipeline for the visualization and characterization of different human tissues. You are an innovative thinker who will be developing deep learning methods and algorithms, exploiting our unique patient data sets. Your results will boost our technology and help us to achieve high quality, clinical grade products. Your algorithms will soon be used in clinical patient examinations. You will use agile and scrum methods and work in vibrant entrepreneurial team of image scientists and developers.

Your responsibilities:

  • research and develop new algorithms for MR image analysis;
  • prototype clinical imaging solutions;
  • incorporate clinical end user feedback into your systems;
  • theoretically and experimentally validate clinical grade methodology.


Minimum qualifications:

  • a master's degree in mathematics, physics, statistics, computer science, or a related discipline;
  • experience with developing deep learning methods;
  • programming skills (e.g. Python, R, Matlab, C++);
  • ability to speak and write in English fluently.

Preferred qualifications:

  • experience with (medical) imaging and/or computer vision development tools; 
  • interest in developing clinically oriented imaging solutions;
  • ability to communicate and collaborate effectively with imaging researchers and clinical specialists;
  • the desire to work in a dynamic environment of a start-up company.

About MRIguidance BV
During their research MRI physicist Peter Seevinck and medical image scientist Marijn van Stralen identified great unused potential for MRI-based medical imaging technologies. Together with Roel Raatgever, former director of Europe’s no.6 academic business incubator UtrechtInc, they have founded UMC Utrecht spin-off company MRIguidance. The team of MRIguidance actively collaborates with hospitals in the Netherlands and abroad to acquire unique patient data sets and clinically validate the results of the deep learning experiments. MRIguidance recently became founding partner of the Fieldlab 3DMedical. The images of MRIguidance will form the basis for 3D printed implants and medical devices.

Our offer

This is what we offer you:

  • a market conform salary; 
  • a unique opportunity to, already at an early stage, become part of a med-tech start-up with vast growth potential;
  • the possibility to get a stake in the company; 
  • work with interesting 3D medical imaging data sets from real patients;
  • work on complex problems and see direct (visual) result;
  • work that has a positive impact on people’s health and life; 
  • work with the newest deep learning methods using Keras and TensorFlow (and get training on the job)
  • state of the art hardware and computational infrastructure;
  • work in a team of smart, ambitious, and likeminded people;
  • work with international partners;
  • freedom and responsibility;
