The candidate will participate in an international research project on the quality of 3D eye movement control before and after strabismus surgery. Specifically, she/he will be in charge of gathering data, developing and deploying on cloud new analysis of eye movements based on time series and image processing.
Learn the technology developed of Orasis-Ear, REMOBI & AiDEAL (https://orasis-ear.com) for neuro-functional exploration and training of eye movements in 3D in healthy persons and patients.
Collect and structure the data from various clinical centers participating in the strabismus project in France and in India (All India Institute of Medical Science). All clinical centers are using the REMOBI & AiDEAL technology and tests are run by clinicians, orthoptists or optometrists in each service; the candidate will be connected with all partners, collect the data but also their needs for future improvements of the technology.
Develop novel data analysis methods specific for strabismic persons, taking into consideration the misalignment of the eyes, but also the dynamic fluctuations of the strabismus while the eyes are moving across the 3D space. In particular, the already existing software (AiDEAL) will be adapted to strabismus. The candidate will develop an image processing approach (including, but not limited to, clustering analysis, dynamic spatial mapping etc.) The overall goal is to produce several indexes enabling to evaluate the quality of eye movement control in patients that will be integrated in a new software (ImaGEAL) complementing the existing one (AiDEAL). Finally, the candidate will deploy this new software on the cloud (in serverless mode). This part of the mission can take place right from the beginning of the project thanks to the existing database of Orasis-EAR (approximately 700 patients, with other pathologies than strabismus).
The candidate will have a PhD in one or several relevant disciplines (neuroscience, data science/AI). Strong skills in data analysis, programming in C++, Python, QT, knowledge on architecture and deployment of technical solutions in the cloud, data storage, data management and privacy. Good oral communication, writing and organisation skills are expected. English proficiency is required.
Contexte de travail
The candidate will be co-supervised by Marine Vernet, Ph.D. CNRS Researcher, IMPACT, CRNL (UMR5292, Lyon, France) and Zoï Kapoula, Ph.D., CEO of Orasis-Ear, a spinoff of the CNRS. The candidate will develop her/his activity at Orasis-Ear in Paris, with regular meetings with M. Vernet & Z. Kapoula.
At Orasis-Ear she/he will interact with the other engineers and associate IA researchers and with the CTO. Interactions with researchers from the LIPADE laboratory, working on Data Analysis of visual processing, will be possible and encouraged.
The candidate will benefit from a rich and international environment, from academic (Lyon Neuroscience Research Center, AIIMS in India) and industrial partners (Orasis-Ear).
Contraintes et risques
The candidate will be based in Paris, with regular meetings in Lyon.
