Grade 6 - £27,025 to £33,199 dependent on experience (fixed term for 12 months)

Sheffield Hallam University, Sheffield Children's Hospital and Sheffield University have a well-established track record of highly productive research collaboration. In this research a team of engineers and medical consultants from the three institutions will collaborate with an industrial partner to develop thermal imaging for measuring respiratory air flow in a non-contact manner to assist with diagnosing apnoea. The fund for the study is from Medical Research Council (MRC).

You will join a team of engineers and medical consultants to develop novel thermal image processing techniques for medical monitoring and diagnosis, innovate, evaluate and clinically trial the developed techniques, assist with writing technical reports and journal papers, present the work and assist with writing grant applications. The work will provide a great opportunity for you to innovate new techniques in field of thermal image processing that could support clinicians to better monitor and diagnose a respiratory related disorder called apnoea.

You should have a doctorate in a relevant subject area or equivalent research experience and sound knowledge of image processing at an advanced level. Some of the development work will use Matlab© so you must have knowledge and experience this and you must have the ability to effectively manage relations with a variety of stakeholders both internal and external to the University. Knowledge of constructing electronic systems for medical applications is desirable.

We particularly welcome applicants from underrepresented groups

For non-EU applicants, we are unlikely to be able to offer a certificate of sponsorship for this job (unless you are switching from a UK student visa), so you should only apply if you already have unrestricted permission to work in the UK.
