PhD vacancies

Here you may find a non-exhaustive listing of PhD vacancies at the University Medical Center Groningen. Note that, due to the nature of the PhD program in the Netherlands, the Graduate School of Medical Sciences does not have a complete overview of vacancies. We use this page to publish positions at the request of individual UMCG researchers, who wish to specifically also disseminate the information among our Strategic Partners

  • As a UMCG researcher, should you wish to publish your vacancy here, fill out this form and contact the Graduate School.
  • Prospective PhD students from Strategic Partners may additionally be interested in sandwich PhD opportunities in our Abel Tasman Talent Program, and the admission procedure for PhD students with external funding. PhD students registered at the UMCG  will obtain their PhD degree from the University of Groningen.

3(!) PhD positions: Imaging biomarkers in heart/lung disease: quantification and AI

Lung cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and cardiovascular disease, the so-called Big-3 (B3), are expected to cause most deaths by 2050. Low-dose CT scanning allows assessment of early B3 imaging biomarkers. Within B3CARE, large-scale imaging projects in different populations are combined into an imaging data biobank. We are looking for candidates with a Master’s degree in (Technical) Medicine, Biomedical Technology, Computer science or related field. You will use the imaging data biobank to determine imaging biomarker reference values, validate B3 biomarkers based on AI-based image analysis approaches, and design a computer assisted learning tool on AI in medical imaging.
