The University of Leeds is one of the top 100 universities in the world and University of the Year 2017, as named by The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide. Established in 1904, we have a strong tradition of academic excellence, reflected in first-class student education, along with world-leading research that has a real impact around the globe.

You will help design, build and support innovative solutions to research problems and support our research community with a particular focus on Artificial Intelligence, particularly in Deep Learning and Machine Learning.

A significant part of this role will include working with staff and students in the UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training in Artificial Intelligence for Medical Diagnosis and Care (AI-Medical CDT), colleagues in the Leeds Institute for Data Analytics (LIDA) and across the University. 

You will also support, as part of a team, users of the University High Performance Computing service, the regional N8-BEDE and JADE-2 services and a range of new Cloud tools and services to work with users to help them devise and optimise workflows, models and codes across a range of domains.
