Early Career Lecturership Image Processing & Analysis, Dublin City University
The Vision Systems Group, School of Electronic Engineering, Dublin City University (Ireland) is looking to hire a Lecturer in Image Processing & Analysis as part of the Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) Stokes Professorship and Lectureship Programme. Research Area: Molecular and Cellular Image Analysis. Status: 5-year contract initially with a view to permanent status. Grade: Lecturer Research Focus: Automatic extraction of key image features from molecular and cellular image data with a view to quantitative evaluation and/or tracking. The candidate will be required to carry out international level research in image analysis, classification and tracking of molecular and cellular structures for a range of image modalities (including Optical and Confocal Microscopy, Video and range data images, Nuclear medicine, Nuclear medicine, X-ray, Computed tomography and Magnetic resonance). This will involve developing and designing novel computer based solutions that will allow the automatic extraction of key image features [specifically from 2D, video, 3D and 4D data sources] with a view to a robust and reliable quantitative analysis, classification or tracking of the key information/data within the scene. The candidate would be expected to work in close cooperation with clinical and biological researchers in this field. The candidate would be expected to have a PhD in Computer Vision (or a related area) plus significant post-doctoral and/or industrial research experience. Record of post-graduate supervision, international collaboration, funding acquisition, research leadership and research management would be an advantage. Knowledge of the physics of the image acquisition systems would be also be considered an advantage. The candidate would be at the level of a SFI Principal Investigator (or equivalent), and would be expect to submit such an application within 18 months of their appointment.
