Research Fellow (103577-1220)

Full time, fixed term position for 12 months with the option to extend for another year.


We are seeking a Postdoctoral Research Fellow to work in the area of design and analysis of parameterized algorithms for a period of 24 months. The start date can be negotiated for the successful candidate.

The position is available in connection with a research grant of Dr. Ramanujan Sridharan (https://msramanujan.weebly.com/parity-project.html) and the main objective is to pursue cutting edge research in the design of parameterized algorithms that exploit various notions of graph-edit distance.

You will have a strong background in the mathematical analysis of algorithms, with a specialization in one of the following areas: graph algorithms, combinatorics or parameterized complexity. You will have (or expect to obtain shortly) a PhD in the relevant area.

You should provide with your application form a CV, including a list of publications, a research statement, and a short statement highlighting your suitability for this post.

You will be formally based in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Warwick, and you will be associated with the Centre for Discrete Mathematics and its Applications (http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/fac/cross_fac/dimap) and the Division of Theory and Foundations at the University of Warwick.

For further information, please contact Dr. Sridharan (https://warwick.ac.uk/fac/sci/dcs/people/ramanujan_sridharan/).


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 (£30,046 pa). 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 (£30,942 pa).

Research Fellow (103430-0121)

Previous candidates need not apply.

Full time, fixed term position until 30 November 2021.

Undertake research in order to support the work of the PRISM (PRISM - Machine Learning for Discovery of Pre-neoplastic signature in Mesothelioma) project lead and assist the project collaborators in the successful execution of the project.

This is an immensely exciting opportunity to join the PRISM (PRISM - Machine Learning for Discovery of Pre-neoplastic signature in Mesothelioma) project team based in the Department of Computer Science, University of Warwick as a Research Fellow. The PRISM project has received funding from CRUK-STFC Early Detection Innovation Award to develop a data repository and associated AI tools to improve diagnosis of malignant mesothelioma. The collaborative project is led by Imperial College and involves experts at University of Warwick, Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Imperial College (NHLI), King’s College London, Middlesex University and University of Oxford.

We are recruiting a research fellow in order to build a pathology image data repository and develop novel AI tools to demonstrate diagnostic efficiencies of computer-aided testing of pathology samples and to improve early detection of malignant mesothelioma. As research staff on the project, you will work on research and development of deep learning based image analytics methods for computer-aided screening in multi-gigapixel pathology images. You will also be expected to work closely with project partners in terms of data integration and management as well as development of enabling technologies in this area that can potentially meet regulatory requirements and be suitable for deployment into a clinical setting.

Suitable candidates will have at least a 2.1 Honours degree and a PhD (or equivalent experience / qualification) in Computer Science or a closely related discipline and the experience to initiate and perform research in line with the identified requirements of the project. You will have a strong background in one or more of the following: deep learning; big data management; computational pathology; medical imaging; computer vision; and machine learning.

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 (£30,046). 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 (£30,942 pa).

Research Fellow (103598-0121)

Full time, fixed term position for 12 months, with the possibility of an extension.

The fellow will mainly collaborate with the Data Science Research Group, Prof. Graham Cormode and Prof. Hakan Ferhatosmanoglu, and aim to publish in the premier venues of data driven research. The position is funded by our transport agency partners and European Research Council. The research topics include temporal graph learning, cloud-based analytics of mobility data, and scaling the machine learning process in terms of both size and variety of data. Candidates with related research interests (e.g. graph neural networks, spatio-temporal analysis, scalable machine learning) are encouraged to apply.

The Computer Science Department at Warwick is ranked 1st in the UK for scientific output and 2nd overall in the latest UK Research Excellence Framework. We are among the co-founders of the Alan Turing Institute, UK’s national AI and data science institute. Our research group and department provide an excellent environment for research career development and to be at the forefront of data science research and innovation. Past members of the research group moved to work in the leading technology companies and in permanent faculty positions at major research universities in USA and Europe.

Suitable candidates will possess (or soon to possess) a PhD in Computer Science or a closely related discipline, and can start immediately. Please apply with a Cover letter, CV, Research Statement, and the names of two References.

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 (£30,046). 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 (£30,942 pa).
