Research Fellow in Machine Learning and Deep Neural Architectures for Signal Analysis and Prediction (Fixed Term)

University of Lincoln - School of Computer Science

We seek to employ a highly motivated post-doctoral researcher that will be working on the EU-H2020 project "CORe monitoring Techniques and Experimental validation and demonstration (CORTEX)". The project will give the opportunity to the post holder to engage with other partners of the project across Europe. You should hold a PhD (or equivalent) or be near to completion, and should be able to demonstrate a good track record in at least one of the following research fields:

Machine Learning
Deep Learning
Signal Processing Applications
Pattern Analysis

The contract is fixed for 27 months.

Once in post, you will be working with Professor Stefanos Kollias (Principal Investigator) and Dr Georgios Leontidis (Co-Investigator) on the aforementioned research topics. It is also expected to have a direct collaboration with other partners of the project. The successful candidate will be a member of the newly founded Machine Learning research group (Mlearn). The Mlearn is a rapidly expanding group, part of the School of Computer Science at the University of Lincoln and specialises in the development of machine learning, neural networks, deep learning techniques, decision-making systems, signal processing and big data and various application fields ranging from healthcare to financial applications. We provide a highly-dynamic inter-disciplinary research environment with a broad range of collaboration opportunities. In this project, you will have access to various sources and knowledge within the University, as well as provided by other partners of the project. 

The University of Lincoln is a forward-thinking, ambitious institution and you will be working in the heart of a thriving, beautiful, safe and friendly city. The School provides a stimulating environment for academic research, and is located on the picturesque waterfront campus in the historic and vibrant city of Lincoln. The University has just announced a £130M investment programme, a significant part of which is being invested in new, purpose-built facilities for the School of Computer Science. Lincoln itself is a small but fast growing city in the east-midlands. It offers a fantastic life quality given by moderate living costs, a medieval city centre including a famous cathedral and a beautiful ancient canal system that is still in use by many house boats nowadays.
