We are always looking for good postdoc candidates to work with us in computer vision and machine learning projects. Please e-mail me your CV with the full publication list with the title [Prospective Postdoc].
We are looking for creative and motivated applicants to work in the field of deep learning and biology. The applicants to have, or expected to obtain soon, a 1st Class Honours degree in a relevant discipline, including Informatics, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering but not limited to. Basic programming skills (python, c++, MATLAB) are required. The project does not require any background in biology but willing to learn. This is an EastBio funded studentship (similar to our CDTs). The program will provide training for laboratory skills and knowledge related biological systems. The student will be supervised by Dr Sara Buonomo (Sara.Buonomo@ed.ac.uk) from School of Biological Sciences and me from Informatics.
The studentship is available for only UK citizens or EU citizens with min 3 years of residency in the UK. The application deadline is December 5 and start date for the PhD is September 2019. If you have any queries or like to apply, please send us an email with your CV, transcripts and a two paragraph motivation letter under the title [Prospective EASTBio PhD] before the deadline and don’t forget to apply online.
I receive an overwhelming amount of emails from prospective students for PhD, MSc, MPhil. I am sorry if I have not been able to respond to your email. Here is a FAQ that may help you to find answers:
Do you accept new students? Yes, I am always looking for good students. However, our group does not have any funding for studentships at the moment.
How can I apply for a funding / scholarship? You can find a guideline here for the Informatics scholarships. Alternatively you can apply to one of the centres for doctoral training (CDT), Data Science or Robotics.
What kind of topics can I work on my PhD? I am open to take on students for a wide range of topics in the intersection of computer vision, machine learning and deep learning (see my recent publications to get a sense of what I am currently interested in).
Can I be co-supervised? Yes it is quite common in the School of Informatics. Most PhD students do some collaborative work with other professors.
I have decided to apply to one of these programs and I’d like to contact you. Please e-mail me with the title [Prospective Student].
Do you offer summer projects or internships? No, unfortunately I am not taking any summer students.
Do you accept visiting PhD students or postdocs? Yes, we accept exceptional scholars who have strong publication record in top CV and ML conferences (CVPR, ECCV, ICCV, NIPS and ICML). If you are interested in visiting us, please send us a description of your research and your publication list.
