Job Purpose

Project title: Royal Academy of Engineering Research Associate in imaging technologies

Project description:

The Royal Academy of Engineering is supporting a 10 year research program at the University of Glasgow on imaging. The successful candidate will be part of this research activity within a larger team involving also researchers from QuantIC, the UK Quantum Hub for Imaging. This team will work with our international academic and industrial partners on future and emerging quantum or quantum-inspired imaging technologies.

We are looking for talented and motivated researchers interested in computational and/or quantum imaging. Computational aspects are expected to be in very close collaboration with the team lead by Roderick Murray-Smith in computing sciences at UoG with a particular emphasis on image retrieval and machine learning techniques.

The expectation is that the research will cover a range of imaging problems, for example next generation LIDAR, imaging behind corners, imaging through scattering media with biomedical applications, quantum LIDAR, single photon upconversion and single photon imaging in the mid-infrared. 

We strongly encourage applications from both Physics and Engineering backgrounds.

Standard Terms & Conditions

Salary will be on the University’s Research and Teaching Grade, level 7, £35,210 - £39,610 per annum.

This post is full time with funding up to 3 years in the first instance.

All research and related activities, including grants, donations, clinical trials, contract research, consultancy and commercialisation are required to be managed through the University’s relevant processes (e.g. contractual and financial), in accordance with the University Court’s policies.

It is the University of Glasgow’s mission to foster an inclusive climate, which ensures equality in our working, learning, research and teaching environment.

We strongly endorse the principles of Athena SWAN, including a supportive and flexible working environment, with commitment from all levels of the organisation in promoting gender equality.
