Postdoc Position Artificial Intelligence in Computational Cardiac Electrophysiology

Job description

At the Department of Physiology within the Cardiovascular Research Institute Maastricht (CARIM) at Maastricht University, we have a vacancy for a postdoctoral researcher in the field of artificial intelligence, applied to the analysis of cardiac arrhythmias, specifically atrial fibrillation (AF).

As part of the EU-funded Horizon 2020 project MAESTRIA (Machine Learning and Artificial intelligence for Early detection of Stroke and Atrial Fibrillation) we aim to develop novel ways to detect atrial fibrillation and to identify novel therapeutic targets to personalize AF management, by integrating data from various sources. In Maastricht, we particularly focus on determining electrophysiological parameters as biomarkers to rigorously determine the complexity and progression of human AF from early to advanced stages of atrial remodeling. Tasks include the automated detection of AF in various types of electrocardiograms (ECG), the prediction of AF treatment outcome based on clinical patient characteristics and advanced ECG features, and the identification of driving electrical conduction mechanisms of AF in electro-anatomical mapping data.

The postdoctoral researcher will be responsible for the development and implementation of appropriate techniques from the field of artificial intelligence to train, test and validate models for these tasks, ranging from multimodal prediction models to models for pattern recognition, using for instance a deep learning approach. You will work in close collaboration with your supervisors, other postdocs and PhD candidates in a joint, multidisciplinary effort to integrate large amounts of electrophysiological data into state-of-the-art computational tools for personalized AF management.


Maastricht University (UM)



  • A PhD in computer science and/or artificial intelligence or related fields;
  • Advanced knowledge of various machine learning techniques, including deep learning;
  • A track record or on, or demonstrated experience with the application of machine/deep learning in the context of biomedical signals;
  • Good command of scientific English and experience with writing high-quality scientific papers.


Familiarity with concepts from the field of computational cardiac electrophysiology and cardiac measurement modalities

Conditions of employment

Fixed-term contract: 3 years.

We offer an interdisciplinary and collaborative postdoc project embedded into a highly international institute, which is one of the leading research institutions in the field of cardiac electrophysiology.

The position (1.0 FTE) is temporary for the duration of 3 year. Depending on experience and qualification, the maximum gross monthly salary is € 4.474,- in accordance with scale 10 of the Dutch university collective bargaining agreement.

The terms of employment of Maastricht University are set out in the Collective Labour Agreement of Dutch Universities (CAO). Furthermore, local UM provisions also apply. For more information look at the website > About UM > Working at UM.
