JOB : Post-doc Computer Vision & Image Analysis - Cranfield University - UK

www.cranfield.ac.uk/hr

School of Engineering, Cranfield University, UK.
Research Officer/Fellow
Computer Vision & Image Analysis

27,665 to 30,835 per annum (depending on qualifications and experience)

We are seeking a suitably qualified Researcher to work on a computer
vision project in the Applied Mathematics and Computing Group in the
School of Engineering. The Group has a strong record in applied
research in the academic and industrial sectors including computer
vision and image processing.

Your research and development activity will primarily be related to
the automated identification and classification of cell nuclei in a
collaborative research project with the University of Birmingham. This
will involve the adaptation of established image classifier techniques
towards the automatic identification of cell nuclei within dental
slide imagery and later integration of machine learning classification
tools to determine particular sub-types of cell nuclei. You will work
as part of a cross-institutional project and be expected to contribute
to inter-team meetings and publications. In addition you may also have
the opportunity to work on other related projects within the Cranfield
research group.

You will have a strong background in image processing, image analysis,
computer vision or a related field of computer science or computer
engineering. Ideally you will have a specific interest or experience
in object recognition or image classification systems. You will have a
good first degree in computer science, artificial intelligence or a
related subject and a PhD or strong experience in a relevant topic.
Candidates without a PhD will also be considered, postgraduate
experience at MSc level is desirable and prior experience is essential
in:

- programming (C, C++)
- computer vision, image processing or image analysis techniques.

Additional medical/biological computer vision or image analysis
experience is desirable but not essential. This appointment will
commence in November 2007, for a fixed term of 12 months (end of the
project in November 2008). An extension of this initial term may be
possible.

To make an informal enquiry please contact Professor Thompson, Head of
the Applied Mathematics and Computing Group, E: amac@cranfield.ac.uk
or Dr. Breckon, Project Manager, E: toby.breckon@cranfield.ac.uk.
