We are looking to recruit a PDRA to join the Research Centre for Optimal Health in the School of Life Sciences at the University of Westminster to work on a research project funded by a life science company.
Our ongoing research project focuses on the development and application of novel image processing techniques to extensive collections of medical images to create novel biomarkers. The work will involve driving analyses to investigate age and health outcomes using these biomarkers.

Previous experience with research focusing on biomedical data analysis, medical image computing, and machine learning is advantageous but not required. Previous experience with magnetic resonance imaging is also preferred. The ideal candidate should have experience in computational and statistical programming languages.
