About the position

The Faculty of Science and Technology at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU) has a vacant 2-year PostDoc position related to infrared imaging and numerical simulation of electromagnetic wave propagation.

The PostDoc position is funded by the NFR FriNaTek project DeepHyperSpec ‘Combining spectral and image information in the analysis of hyperspectral imaging data’,

https://www.nmbu.no/en/faculty/realtek/research/groups/biospectroscopy/research/scattering/deephyperspec/node/36270

DeepHyperSpec is combining deep learning methods with multivariate modelling of scattering and absorption in biomedical vibrational spectroscopy in order to develop a new paradigm for the analysis of hyperspectral imaging data. The project results will enhance the understanding of how scatter, morphological and chemical information in infrared microspectroscopic imaging can be used in medicine, such as cancer diagnosis.

The PostDoc project will provide a detailed understanding of scattering and absorption effects in pixelated data in 2D infrared spectroscopy allowing to exploit scatter and absorption information for building classification models in infrared microspectroscopic imaging.
