The position will be supporting a project on manual operation tracking, whereby target individual motions are learnt and subsequently followed and evaluated during task performance. Further research in aspects of visual computing including human computer interaction, graphics, image processing and vision may also be conducted. A PhD/EngD in a visual computing field, or a student about to finish, is a requirement (graphics, image processing or computer vision). Experience with machine learning and publications in the area are also required.

Teaching Fellow
50% of this post will support teaching activities in WMG, University of Warwick, in the following areas: programming and fundamental algorithms and machine learning. In particular, applicants need to be very experienced in C/C++, Python and Pytorch. The successful candidate will deliver a programming and algorithms module and partially support machine learning and visual computing modules. They will also provide supervision for MSc students and co-supervise PhD/EngD students if required.

We will provide a great range of benefits which include an attractive pension scheme, 30 days holiday plus bank holidays and Christmas closure, some fantastic savings on a wide range of products and services, and excellent learning and development opportunities.

At WMG we are committed to supporting staff to achieve their potential. We currently hold the Athena SWAN Silver Award and the University of Warwick also holds an Institutional Silver Award: a national initiative that recognises the advancement of gender equality, representation, progression and success for all in academia. We are supportive of staff with caring responsibilities including a generous maternity/paternity/adoption/parental leave policy, and onsite childcare facilities. We will consider applications for employment on a part-time or other flexible working basis, even where a position is advertised as full-time, unless there are operational or other objective reasons why it is not possible to do so.

If you have not yet been awarded your PhD but are near submission or have recently submitted your PhD, any offers of employment will be made as Research Assistant on level 5 of the University grade structure (£30,046). Upon successful award of your PhD and evidence of this fact, you will be promoted to Research Fellow on the first point of the level 6 of the University grade structure (£30,942).
