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).
