Research Fellow in Computing (Image Analysis)
Posted by Stephen Royle, on 15 December 2022
Fixed-term contract until 16 January 2024, 1.0 FTE. (Maternity Cover)
£32,348 – £42,155 per annum
The Division of Biomedical Sciences at Warwick Medical School has research themes in cell and developmental biology, microbiology & infection, and translational & experimental medicine. Our research activities, particularly in Mechanochemical Cell Biology and advanced imaging, require computing expertise and support. Current computational projects include tracking of kinetochores and vesicles in 4D, analysis of cell migration and the segmentation of subcellular structures.
This Research Fellow position is to provide computing support for research groups; for their image analysis, storage and automation needs. You will be line-managed by Prof Stephen Royle in the Division of Biomedical Sciences, but will interface with multiple research groups in the Division and/or Centre for Mechanochemical Cell Biology. You will be part of a small team called CAMDU (Computing and Advanced Microscopy Unit). We are searching for a driven, creative scientist who can develop novel computational tools and methods to catalyse our science.
You will have a good honours degree and have or expect shortly to have a relevant PhD. Experience of image analysis and programming is essential and familiarity with cell biology an advantage.
