[visionlist] Postdoc fellow in Computational PathologyPosted: March 1, 2017
We are seeking to recruit a postdoctoral
research fellow in the area of digital pathology to work on developing
novel image analytics methods for computerised profiling of the tumour
You will be expected to perform high quality research under the
supervision of Professor Nasir Rajpoot, as part of the MRC funded
project ‘Micro-Community Analytics for Histology Landscapes (MiCAHiL)’.
The expectation is that you will produce breakthrough research results
on sophisticated tools for image analytics in order to reveal spatial
trends and patterns associated with disease sub-groups, publish these
results in top rated venues, and assist with the deployment of those
tools for validation at the University Hospitals Coventry &
Warwickshire (UHCW) NHS Trust.
The project will be run in collaboration with a team of pathologists
at the UHCW and the University of Nottingham Medical School, and also
with Intel Health and Life Sciences (HLS) team in the UK and the centre
for Computational Imaging and Personalisation Diagnostics (CCIPD) at
Case Western Reserve University in the USA.
You will possess a PhD or an equivalent qualification in Computer
Science or a very closely related discipline (or you will shortly be
obtaining it). You should have a strong background in one or more of the
following areas: computer vision; image analysis/analytics; machine
learning; digital pathology image analysis.
If you have not yet been awarded your PhD but are near submission or
have recently submitted your PhD, any offers of employment will be made
as Research Assistant on level 5 of the University grade structure
(£28,453). Upon successful award of your PhD and evidence of this fact,
you will be promoted to Research Fellow on the first point of level 6 of
the University grade structure (£29,301).
The post is based in the Department of Computer Science at University
of Warwick. It will offer opportunities for collaborations with closely
related research organisations such as the Warwick Data Science
Institute (WDSI) and the Alan Turing Institute (ATI). You will join a
team of researchers in the Tissue Image Analytics (TIA) lab, led by
Professor Rajpoot, including other postdoctoral researchers and PhD
Candidates should provide with their application form a CV, a list of publications and a research statement.
