Job description

The Centre for Cancer Research and Cell Biology (CCRCB) sits within the School of Medicine, Dentistry and Biomedical Sciences.  CCRCB works with partners around the world in developing cancer treatments and pioneering advances in patient care.

This post-doctoral computer scientist position will seek to employ Deep Learning methodologies to patient digital acquired images as part of a two year funded programme encapsulating an MRC Confidence in Concept award. The overall programme is to understand and develop an algorithm producing probabilities of key markers driving cancer from digital images. With a key role in the curation of large datasets and development of bespoke tools, it is expected the candidate will implement novel and bespoke software methods, verify analyses and add to the ongoing Artificial Intelligence programme within the McArt Lab in CCRCB. As part of this research project, it is important the candidate will be able to drive discovery approaches and develop software to address key hypotheses. The role will seek to build capacity between key partners and the development of bespoke software. The successful candidate will be expected to integrate into a multidisciplinary environment provided on site, and to interact with the key focus groups in data handling and analytics.
