Senior Research Associate/Research Associate in Image Processing, Computer Vision and Machine Learning (H-unique) (x 2 posts)

Lancaster University - School of Computing and Communications

Location: Lancaster
Salary: £36,386 to £42,155
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Permanent
Placed On: 23rd September 2022
Closes: 14th October 2022
Job Ref: 0994-22

Interview date: Friday 21st October 2022

This is an opportunity to join our Imaging and Computer Vision Lab (iCVL) as a Senior Research/Research Associate in Image Processing, Computer Vision and Machine Learning, working on the multi-million pound ERC-funded project H-Unique. You will be developing new image processing and computer vision methodologies for effective multimodal feature extraction and comparison from colour and infrared images in a way that is robust to changes in viewpoint, illumination, background and modality. This is a fantastic opportunity to focus on core theory and methodology development with real-world meaningful application on a high-profile project.

This exciting research opportunity has arisen directly from ground-breaking research undertaken by the principal investigator Prof Dame Sue Black in the forensic identification of individuals from images of their anatomy. Assessment of the evidential robustness of hand identification in the courtroom requires that the degree of “uniqueness” in the human hand be assessed through large volume image analysis. The research opens up the opportunity to develop new and exciting biometric capabilities that have a wide range of real-world applications, from security access through to border control whilst assisting the investigation of serious and organised crime on a global level. You can find out more about the project at our website www.lancaster.ac.uk/security-lancaster/research/h-unique.

We invite applications from enthusiastic individuals who have a PhD or equivalent experience in a relevant discipline such as Mathematics, Computer Science or Electrical Engineering. You must be able to demonstrate a research background in the area of image processing, computer vision, and deep learning. Familiarity with biometric image analysis methods is not essential but will put you at an advantage. We will also value highly your ability to learn rapidly and to adapt to new technologies beyond your current skills and expertise. For more details, please see the Job Description/Person Specification for this position.

The School of Computing and Communications offers a highly inclusive and stimulating environment for career development, and you will be exposed to a range of further opportunities over the course of this post. We are committed to family-friendly and flexible working policies on an individual basis, as well as the Athena SWAN Charter, which recognises and celebrates good employment practice undertaken to address gender equality in higher education and research.

You will join us on an indefinite contract. However, the role remains contingent on external funding which, for this position, ends 31st December 2024.

For further information or an informal discussion please contact Dr. Bryan M. Williams (Email: b.williams6@lancaster.ac.uk) or Dr. Hossein Rahmani (Email: h.rahmani@lancaster.ac.uk)
