Deep Learning Specialist

OncoRadiomics is a fast-growing, ambitious company, with headquarters based in Liège, Belgium. Expansion to the US and China are in our plans for the near future. Our mission is to revolutionize patient care and drug development thanks to artificial intelligence and the radiomic features embedded in medical imaging. OncoRadiomics has a CE marked/ FDA pending clinical decision support system (RadiomiX Clinical) as well as a unique research software (The Discovery Toolbox). OncoRadiomics also offers solutions for optimized clinical drug development trajectories to major pharmaceutical companies thanks to its proprietary software and in-house expertise.

OncoRadiomics strives to have a very talented and diverse team as its core asset, next to several international patents. We aim to recruit the right talent for the right position and offer an ambitious and innovative work environment. With the entire team behind the goals that OncoRadiomics has set, initiatives are met with positivity and talent is nurtured. Thanks to the intrinsic talent within the team and warm working relationships, not a day goes by where you will not learn something new from one of your colleagues.

We are currently looking to enlarge our team with an additional Deep Learning Specialist.
