Research Assistant /associate in Computer Vision and Pervasive Sensing

Imperial College London, UK has an opening postdoctoral scholar position in artificial intelligence. Potential candidates should apply before November 25, 2018.

Full time, fixed term appointment up to 30th April 2020

The Hamlyn Centre is dedicated to developing safe, effective and accessible imaging, sensing and robotics technologies that can reshape the future of healthcare. Focusing on technological innovation but with a strong emphasis on clinical translation and direct patient benefit with a global impact, the centre is at the forefront of research in imaging, sensing and robotics for addressing global health challenges associated with demographic, environment, social and economic changes. We are seeking to hire a researcher to develop an Innovative Passive Dietary Monitoring System, funded by a major Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation grant. The aim of this project is to develop a passive dietary monitoring system for both adults and children living in Low and Middle-Income Countries (LMICs) which will accurately report food and nutritional intake. In particular, through integrating wearable and fixed cameras together with pervasive sensors, the monitoring system will detect and capture eating episodes, classify food types from the camera images, estimate the ingestion volume and deduce the nutrient intake of the individual. The system will be validated in rural and urban settings in two African countries (Kenya and Ghana).

We are looking for outstanding applicants in any of the following areas of research: - Computer Vision; - Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning; - Audio signal processing; - Wearable and pervasive sensing; - Technology translation; - Testing and validation and conducting human studies.

- At Research Assistant level, you must have a Masters degree (or equivalent) in Electronic Engineering, Computer Science, Biomedical Engineering or a related discipline. - At Research Associate level, you must have PhD degree (or equivalent) in related disciplines. - Considerable experience in interdisciplinary research and managing large collaborative research projects. - Strong experience and a proven track record in one or more of the above research areas are encouraged to apply. - A high level of analytical and computing skills is required. - Preference will be given to applicants with a proven research record and publications in relevant areas. - Applicants must have excellent verbal and written communication skills. *Candidates who have not yet been officially awarded their PhD will be appointed as Research Assistant within the salary range 33,380 to 35,061 per annum.
