Job description

The technology department covers a number of disciplines from data science to product development, including testing and platform automation. The Model Development team is in charge of developing and validating all the models that sit at the core of our products, including those to detect and segment nodules in CT scans of the lung. To grow our portfolio and to improve existing models, we are looking to bring additional machine learning and computer vision power to the team.

As a Machine Learning Scientist in a multidisciplinary team you get the chance to positively impact patient care by creating relevant and safe medical imaging applications. Your core responsibilities are:
* Extract insights from complex (imaging) data through exploration and visualization
* Perform analyses on scan and annotation data to ensure high data quality and collaborate closely with our in-house medical and annotator tooling teams
* Design and implement state-of-the-art deep learning models and computer vision algorithms
* Perform statistical analyses in the context of clinical performance studies
* Work with medical and regulatory experts to collect model and data requirements
* Work in a structured way to coordinate specs, development workflows and test cases to comply with Quality Assurance (QA) standards for CE and FDA certification
* Collaborate with the full team to make strategic recommendations and improvements to the technology and business, * A take-home assignment followed by a half-day session in which: 1. We will go over your assignment. 2. We will have a more general discussion on theoretical and practical data science topics. 3. You will have a final interview with our Chief Technology Officer.


At Aidence, we rally 60+ of the brightest data scientists, software engineers, medical, regulatory, and commercial experts, all driven by the purpose of drastically improving medical diagnostics using AI.

Aidence is part of RadNet's Artificial Intelligence division. In almost six years of activity, we built a solid track record of deployments and gained the trust of physicians who recognise the problem we are solving for them. Our solution, focusing on early lung cancer diagnosis, is currently used in screening programmes and routine clinical practice across Europe and is pending FDA approval.
