Brief synopsis:

Work with an experienced team of researchers within the Centre for Health Services Research and Dermatology Research Centre, UQ on our innovative 3D-total body imaging system for the early detection of melanoma. 3D total-body imaging and artificial intelligence technology could play a role in identifying lesions with a high likelihood of melanoma.

Under guidance from the team, we are looking for a student to help develop and write a protocol and submit an ethics application for a diagnostic study that aims to assess the accuracy of an artificial intelligence–based melanoma detection algorithm, compared with clinical assessment and histopathological diagnosis.
