Career Opportunities


Research Fellow in Medical Image Analysis
Ref. 50054030

Salary: £40,173 - £44,615 p.a (L.W.A)

Department: Life Sciences

Location: Central London

We are looking to recruit two Research Fellows to join the Research Centre for Optimal Health, in the School of Life Sciences at the University of Westminster, to work on a research project funded by a biotech company.  

This research project will focus on the development and application of novel image processing techniques (segmentation, registration, statistical shape modelling) to large collections of clinical MR images.

The project will be developing biomedical image processing, medical image computing, and machine learning with abdominal magnetic resonance imaging. The work will involve developing algorithms to investigate health using multi-modality MR images and will include distributed computing environments and cloud-based systems.

The successful candidates must be highly motivated and have an advanced degree (PhD) in computer science, electrical or biomedical engineering, physics, statistics or related fields. Previous experience with research focusing on biomedical image processing, medical image computing, and machine learning is advantageous but not required. Previous experience with magnetic resonance imaging is also preferred. The candidates will be involved in developing algorithms to investigate health using multi-modality MR images. The ideal candidates should have experience in programming languages such as C/C++ and Python. Experience with developing image-processing tools using the ITK/VTK environment or similar open-source software is a plus. Experience with distributed computing environments and cloud-based systems is also a plus.  

There are two positions available, both are fixed term. One is for one year and the other for two years.
