Dear Igor, The following Lecturer job (similar to Assistant Professor level) may be of interest to Nuit Blanche readers, especially those interested in Medicine & Healthcare applications of vision/image analysis. Best wishes, Mark
Lectureship in Computer Vision/Image Analysis for Medicine & Healthcare
Centre for Vision, Speech and Signal Processing, University of Surrey, UK
Closing Date: Thursday 18 February 2016
The University offers a unique opportunity for an outstanding research leader to join the Centre for Vision, Speech and Signal Processing (CVSSP).
The successful candidate is expected to build a research project portfolio to complement existing CVSSP strengths. The centre seeks to appoint an individual with an excellent research track-record and international profile to lead future growth of research activities in one or more of the following areas:
* Medical Image Analysis
* Image and Sensor Analysis for Healthcare
* Big Data Understanding for Healthcare
* Machine Learning & Pattern Recognition
* Machine Intelligence
We now seek a strong research leader who can develop the existing activities of CVSSP and exploit the synergetic possibilities that exist within the centre, across the University and regionally with UK industry. You will possess proven management and leadership qualities, demonstrating achievements in scholarship and research at a national and international level, and will have substantial experience of teaching within HE.
CVSSP is one of the primary centres for computer vision & audio-visual signal processing in Europe with over 120 researchers, a grant portfolio of £18M and a track-record of pioneering research leading to technology transfer in collaboration with UK industry. Related to this post CVSSP, in collaboration with the Surrey Centres for Clinical & Sleep Research, has recently been awarded £1.2M equipment funding to support research in sensor networks to monitor & measure people for healthcare in the community. CVSSP forms part of the Department of Electronic Engineering, recognised as a top department for both Teaching and Research. Further details of CVSSP: surrey.ac.uk/cvssp
