Deep learning in satellite imagery to monitor health indicators in low- and middle-income countries
This postdoctoral fellowship is a collaboration between Stanford University and the Heidelberg Institute of Global Health at Heidelberg University, Germany’s oldest university and a leading hub for health-related research in Europe. We are looking for a researcher with experience working with convolutional neural networks and, ideally, satellite imagery. The researcher will work under the mentorship of Drs. Pascal Geldsetzer, Stefano Ermon, David Lobell, Marshall Burke, Gary Darmstadt, Carlos Guestrin, and Eran Bendavid, as well as other researchers at Stanford and Heidelberg University.
The Postdoctoral Research Fellow will process and analyze satellite data. The broad aim of these analyses is to devise novel ways of using machine learning in satellite data for assessments of health indicators and to improve healthcare delivery in low- and middle-income countries. The researcher will be expected to publish in leading peer-reviewed journals.
• Doctoral degree with training (or research experience) in convolutional neural networks and/or the analysis of satellite image data
• Strong coding skills in Python or R
• Good communication skills in English
