About the role

We are seeking a Full-Time Postdoctoral Researcher in Computer Vision CT image analysis to join the Nuffield Department of Surgical Sciences (John Radcliffe Hospital, Headington, Oxford), working in close collaboration with the Biomedical Image Analysis group.

You will be based in Nuffield Department of Surgical Sciences, John Radcliffe Hospital as your normal place of work; but you may be able to agree a pattern of regular remote working with your line manager.

This is a unique opportunity to develop your career in the intersection of: Healthcare, Academia and Industry. Your research will translate to real world impact that improves patient journeys, healthcare system efficiency and environmental sustainability.

Your scientific research will focus on the development of machine/deep learning-based medical image analysis methods for computerised tomography scans (CT scans). Key applications of such ML/DL methods are illustrated by our prior research (PMIDs 33913675, 33234786, 33630463, 35286501, each IP represented by a patent filing) where we showed the potential for such applications to be ‘platform technologies'. We will next iteratively refine the clinical applications in different anatomical regions and in different pathological contexts. A key focus will be further refining the method of ‘Digital FDG tracer' for cancer imaging. You are strongly encouraged to read these prior publications prior to the panel interview.

About you

You should possess a relevant PhD/DPhil (or be near completion), as well as relevant experience in the area. You should also have previous experience of contributing to publications/presentations and the ability and enthusiasm to deliver results in interdisciplinary research.
