Assistant Professor in Imaging and Computation

Heriot-Watt University

Location: Edinburgh
Salary: £43,414 to £51,805 (salary dependent on experience and qualifications)
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Permanent
Placed On: 25th January 2023
Closes: 19th March 2023
Job Ref: 24952495

We welcome applications at the Assistant Professor level to join the Signal and Image processing Laboratory (SIPLab) of Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh. We seek candidates with demonstrated experience of cutting-edge research at the interface of imaging and computation sciences, ranging from computational imaging, to image processing, analysis, and visualisation, and with expertise across theory, algorithms, and applications.

Heriot-Watt is an internationally-leading University, recognised for its world-class research, emerging from a strong collaborative and multi-disciplinary research culture.  The School of Engineering and Physical Sciences (EPS) is one of the most successful schools of its kind in the UK, with over £25 million annual research income. It is a recognised research leader in both Physics and Engineering, consistently rated among the best at national level, in particular in the context of the Research Excellence Framework.

As one of the main research units of EPS’s Institute of Sensors, Signals, and Systems, SIPLab is a leading laboratory imaging and computation sciences, and is recognised both nationally and internationally.  Our research is deeply embedded into three of Edinburgh’s Data-Driven Innovation hubs: the Bayes Centre, the National Robotarium, and the Edinburgh International Data Facility.

We seek outstanding self-motivated individuals developing world-leading research at the interface of imaging and computation sciences, ranging from computational imaging, to image processing, analysis, and visualisation.

You will have expertise ranging from theory and algorithms (machine learning, optimisation, statistical methods, graph-based methods, etc.), to techniques (coded-aperture, aperture synthesis, multi-model fusion, compressive sensing, etc.) and imaging applications throughout science and technology (medical imaging, astronomical imaging, remote sensing, computational photography, quantum imaging, etc.), to extreme imaging modalities (extreme scale, low resource, extreme environments, etc.), also including the interface with high-performance computing hardware and software technologies.

The successful applicant will develop cutting-edge research and establish collaborations within SIPLab, Heriot-Watt,  Edinburgh’s Data-Driven Innovation hubs, as well as at national and international levels. There will be a requirement to demonstrate leadership and initiative, with a view to building a research team and becoming internationally recognised.

Candidates should be able to demonstrate interest and experience in teaching signal and image processing. The successful candidate will be required to contribute to teaching within EPS’s Electrical, Electronic & Computer Engineering discipline. Of particular relevance are two international MSc programmes run by SIPLab: the MSc in Computational Data Science joint with the School of Mathematical and Computer Sciences, and the new flagship MSc in Imaging, Vision and High Performance Computing, joint with the University of Edinburgh.

Education, Qualifications and Experience

Essential criteria

  • PhD in Engineering, Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science (or equivalent), in the area of signal and image processing.
  • Research expertise and strong publication record in major international journals and conferences in the broad area of imaging and computation sciences.

  • Experience in teaching and project supervision.

Desirable criteria

  • International research experience.
  • Experience in raising research funding.
  • Experience in managing a research team.
  • Experience of high-performance computing and software technologies.
