Filled Vacancies

Univeristy College London - Department of Computer Science


Salary: £33,353 to £40,313 UCL Grade 7, per annum, inclusive of London Allowance
Hours: Full Time
Contract:  3 Years in the first instance funded by the Wellcome Trust and EPSRC
Closes:      30th August 2014
Job Ref: 1419605


Main Purpose of the Post:

UCL was recently awarded £10million to develop better tools and imaging techniques that will improve the success of surgery and other therapies on unborn babies in collaboration with KU Leuven, Great Ormond Street Hospital and University College London Hospital.


We are seeking a post-doctoral research associate to work on developing surgical vision techniques to advance real-time information processing of images acquired in utero using a fetoscope. The candidate will develop techniques which can be applied to the challenging data to perform image stitching and mosaicking, camera localization and 3D reconstruction, tissue tracking and blood vessel recognition.


The project is ambitious and widely scoped and therefore there will be exciting opportunities to link vision research to robotics and mechatronics, new methods for biophotonic imaging, advanced visualization and efficient computational processing.


Key Requirements

The successful candidate will have a PhD in computer vision, medical image computing, biomedical engineering, or a comparable subject. Strong expertise in programming high-level languages (e.g. C/C++, Matlab). Strong background in computer vision, image processing, or medical image computing and specialised in at least two of the following areas: Motion tracking and reconstruction, Detection and recognition, Geometric vision or photometric processing, Use of computer vision libraries and tools (OpenCV, PCL).
