We are looking for an outstanding Research Fellow with experience in machine learning and data science to work on the multi-disciplinary £2.5 million EPSRC grant “Self-Learning Digital Twins for Sustainable Land”. The project aims to develop innovative solutions, enhanced by machine learning and digital twin, to improve our knowledge and decision-making for sustainable agriculture and GHG emission reduction from livestock and land use.
You will work with leading researchers from three research-intensive universities - Loughborough, Leicester and Bristol, with complementary expertise in AI, environmental research, digital twin, GHG modelling, behavioural and social science. The Research Associates will explore a wide range of real-world data (e.g. livestock farm/field measurement and/or image data) and develop novel methods and predictive models to infer new hypotheses and support decision-making in net zero scenarios for sustainable agricultural livestock management. The research aims to close a knowledge gap of how the UK can eliminate agriculture GHG emissions and facilitate the digital transformation of environment-friendly agriculture to achieve net zero carbon ambition.
The candidate will be qualified to PhD level (or near completion) or MSc/BSc (1st class) in Computer Science or closely allied disciplines.
Experience in machine learning, data science, and solid programming skills (e.g. Python, C/C++) are essential.
Knowledge in e.g. deep learning, computer vision and hardware experience are desirable.
Please submit your CV and a cover letter with your application. Candidates with MSc/BSc degrees may also submit transcripts as supporting document.
Informal enquiries should be made to the Lead Academic, Professor Baihua Li ( email@example.com ).
Closing date for applications is 20/10/2023, please follow the link for further info.
