We are hiring a Senior Research Software Engineer based at the Department of Computer Science, under the supervision of Professor Andrew Markham. This is a cross-disciplinary project between the Departments of Computer Science and Biology and the successful post-holder will be working on the NERC funded Morphocam project. This project seeks to develop and release machine learning/AI tools to enable precise, metrics measurements to be made on camera trap images of wild animals.

As a Senior Research Sofware Engineer (Machine Learning), you will research, adapt and exploit existing deep learning models and frameworks to build an efficient and user-friendly processing pipeline. You will need extensive experience in machine learning frameworks (e.g. pytorch/tensorflow) and ML- ops for scaling systems into production. You will need to be able to communicate well and work easily with domain users (e.g. field biologists) to understand their needs and problems. You will be independent and self- driven, with a clear approach to project management and delivery. You will also have a strong publication record with a strong ambition towards to top- tier publications and dataset releases.

You will hold a relevant Ph.D/D.Phil and possess experience in software engineering development. Research experience in computer vision and deep learning or similar is required.

Applicants will be required to upload a supporting statement, setting out how you meet the selection criteria.

The closing date for applications is 12 noon on 15 July 2024. Interviews are expected to be held in July.
