Duties and Responsibilities
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research associate to work with Dr James Nelson on the statistical image analysis project “Multiresolution Markov Models for Detecting Radial Patterns of Spicules in Mammograms”, funded by an EPSRC grant. The aim of the project is to develop image processing/computer vision methodology to improve the detection of cancerous abnormalities in mammogram images. The post is available from 30 April 2012 (or as soon as possible thereafter) and is funded for 12 months in the first instance.
Candidates should have a PhD (or equivalent qualification) or have held a previous post-doctoral position in statistical image processing or very closely related areas. Experience with wavelet analysis or Markov random fields is essential.
