Is it possible to pre-train a CNN in a self-supervised way so that it can later be used to solve an instance segmentation task?

I would like to use self-supervised learning (SSL) to learn features from images (the dataset consists of similar images with small differences), then use the resulting trained model to bootstrap an ...
