A postdoctoral researcher position is available with the Radiation and Environmental Science Centre (RESC) on a research project funded by the Science Foundation Ireland Frontiers for the Future programme. The project aims to develop ultra-fast Fourier-transform infrared-based imaging for applications in breast cancer prognosis with a parallel development of machine learning approaches for image interpretation from multiple histopathological sources.
The candidate will work in an interdisciplinary team of physical and life scientists and will also be required to liaise with collaborators at the University College Dublin and elsewhere. Experience in the development of machine learning and AI-based methods for imaging data is a requirement of the position, while experience in the development and operation of photonic imaging apparatus or equivalent will be a significant advantage.
Applicants should have attained their PhD in a relevant discipline with background knowledge and experience in machine learning.
The work on this Research Programme is carried out by Postdoctoral Research Fellows and Senior Postdoctoral Research Fellows and is quasi-autonomous research activity. The mentoring Principal Investigator (PI) will advise the appointee on the conduct of their research which itself will be part of a research programme that the PI is responsible for. The intention is that during the employment of the appointee, they will avail of learning opportunities provided by TU Dublin and/or external agencies related to their particular research programme or research practice in general. At the completion of the Senior/Postdoctoral Research Fellowship period, the appointee will be expected to leave the University and continue their academic formation and development in a different research environment. At the completion of the mentored training period, the appointee should be in a position to take up employment as a fully autonomous researcher with another employer.
The ideal candidate will demonstrate the appropriate mix of knowledge, experience, skills, talent and abilities as outlined below:
