Vacancy: Retinal image analysis postdoc at University of Dundee

Postdoctoral Research Assistant post available to work on retinal image analysis as part of NIHR-Global Health Unit on Diabetes Outcomes Research

The University of Dundee has been awarded a £7million grant from the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) Global Health programme to establish a major new Scotland-India clinical partnership to combat diabetes.

The project aims to combine clinical, retinal image and molecular information to achieve personalised diabetes treatment in India.

The successful candidate will join the Computer Vision and Image Processing group (CVIP) and the Dundee VAMPIRE (Vascular Assessment and Measurement Platform for Images of the REtina) team co-ordinated by Professors Emanuele Trucco and Stephen J McKenna.

Potential applicants are encouraged to have an informal discussion about the post with Professor Emanuele Trucco e.trucco@dundee.ac.uk.
