A Research Fellow is sought to work on the project “Topological Hierarchies in Complex Image Data”, a collaboration between the University of Birmingham and the Alan Turing Institute (ATI), the UKs national institute for AI and data science.
Working within the School of Computer Science in Birmingham, the successful applicant will develop new mathematical and computational approaches to understanding complex images, using ideas drawn from compositional models in computer vision and computational topology to develop new ways to learn the underlying latent structure of an image. The main application areas will be in the biological sciences, and the project will benefit from access to data from some of the most advanced imaging instruments available through the Centre of Membrane Proteins and Receptors (COMPARE) and other collaborations, including state-of-the-art super-resolution microscopy and advanced mass spectrometry imaging techniques. The project will also benefit from access to the UK’s largest IBM PowerAI cluster in Birmingham, and Microsoft Azure cloud services through ATI.
Main duties will include:
The successful applicant will have a strong first degree in a numerate discipline and have completed (or be about to complete) a PhD in Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science or related fields. They will have strong analytical and programming skills and be able to communicate complex ideas with clarity in multidisciplinary environments.
The University of Birmingham is a leading global university and a founding Russell Group member. Our main campus is located not far from the vibrant multicultural city of Birmingham and its international airport. We proudly promote diversity.
