We are seeking a full-time Postdoctoral Research Assistant to work on the European Research Council (ERC) Advanced Grant entitled PULSE (Perception Ultrasound by Learning Sonographic Experience). You will join an existing inter-disciplinary team of engineers and clinicians working on the research and development of next generation ultrasound systems that will be evaluated in the context of clinical obstetrics.
This full-time post is fixed-term until 31 October 2021.
The ambitious objective of this project is to explore how the integration of perceptual cues derived from observing sonographers in the real-world can be utilized to make ultrasound imaging and image interpretation easier for the non-specialist. We have gathered a novel dataset of full-length ultrasound video, gaze-tracking and probe motion data to understand challenges in ultrasound scanning and to build deep learning multi modal models to support sonographer’s perform tasks. The main responsibilities of this particular Postdoctoral Research Assistant (PDRA) position are the development of novel multi modal methods for ultrasound-based image guidance, and real-time demonstrators to illustrate proof-of-principle potential real world applications.
You should possess a doctorate, or near completion of doctorate in computer vision, robotics, or image-guided navigation and have experience or an interest in human-computer interface (HCI) research. You will have the ability to work well in a team, as well as be creative, and enjoy the challenges and rewards of contributing to research that is trying to have a positive impact on advancing healthcare.
Informal enquiries may be addressed to the Professor Alison Noble OBE FRS FREng using the email address below.
