Software Developer in translational MedTech project (100%)


ReflectUS, an ETH Zurich Spin-Off project, in collaboration with the Computer-assisted Applications in Medicine Group, is developing a new diagnostic device for breast cancer based on innovations in ultrasound imaging. ReflectUS enables women of all ages to receive safe and reliable breast cancer diagnosis without radiation and discomfort. Our technology is the winning technology of the Spark Award 2016 (https://www.ethz.ch/spark-award).

The next project stage will translate our benchtop prototype into a clinical product.

We are searching for a motivated candidate willing to join our team as:

Software developer in translational MedTech project

The tasks will involve designing and implementing a software framework, which interfaces the hardware of a medical ultrasound system, for translating a medical imaging application into the clinic. The candidate will be responsible for building various necessary image data collection setups, as well as for implementing cutting-edge research algorithms for real-time operation, while also helping coordinate data collection with our clinical partners. Subsequently, the candidate will also assist in interpreting and validating collected data in the developed framework.

To carry out the above tasks, we are looking for a candidate with a bachelor or master in computer science, signal processing, engineering or related areas. Experience in software design and development (C++, QT framework/QML, Matlab) and know-how on integrating hardware and sensors (e.g., http://www.ultrasonix.com/wikisonix) are desirable. Familiarity with medical application development according to certification guidelines (e.g. SwissMedic), and fast parallelizable/GPU architectures are preferential. Prior experience in translational system development from academia to commercial sector is a plus. A goal-oriented personality with attention to detail rounds up the profile.

Preferred starting date is as soon as possible. We offer an employment of 6 to 12 months, with possibilities for extension.

Please submit your application to Dr. Sergio Sanabria (ssanabria@ethz.ch), including a comprehensive CV and motivation letter.
