PhD Physical Modeling & Simulation

Full time job at Twinical

Twinical is a start-up providing a surgical planning and navigation tool to treat liver cancer patients. We are developing the digital twin of the patient's liver to help the surgeon plan operations virtually and improve his surgical precision by guiding him during the operation. Developed in collaboration with the APHP and more particularly the BOPA innovation chair (www.chaire-bopa.fr) and the Mimesis team from Inria Strasbourg (https://mimesis.inria.fr), our solution reduces the duration of the surgery, improves the postoperative course and reduces the recurrence rate by improving the quality of the resection of tumors not visible with conventional surgical exploration methods.

Integrated within the R&D team, you will work on the main functionality of the company which is the Digital Twin of the organ. You will be in charge of implementing new algorithms in the SOFA framework, to improve this Digital Twin in terms of physical realism while keeping the simulation real time.

PhD Computer Vision & IA

Full time job at Twinical

Integrated within the R&D team, you will work on computer vision algorithms to be able to process and label the images of the operating room in real time. You will study several image processing algorithms using deep learning to address technical challenges. You will collaborate with researchers, engineers and clinicians on this ambitious project. In more detail, your mission will consist of:

  • Implement computer vision algorithms to segment anatomical structures in surgical images.
  • Prototype sensor modalities or imaging techniques to improve current results.
  • Optimize calculation codes to enable real-time processing of the video stream.
  • Test and validate image labelling on clinical study.
  • Maintain code quality and integrity.
  • Actively participate in software compliance with regulatory constraints.

SOFTWARE ENGINEER (C++/C#)

Full time job at Twinical

Integrated within the R&D team, you will be responsible for the design, development and maintenance of our software for surgeons as well as internal software. In this role, you will work hand in hand with the other R&D engineers to integrate their work into the complete solution. In more detail, your mission will consist of:

  • Define and implement software architectures that meet our constraints and needs.
  • Design and implement user interfaces.
  • Participate in the design and implementation of new features.
  • Ensure the compatibility of different software with each other.
  • Maintain code quality and integrity.
  • Actively participate in software compliance with regulatory constraints
