We are seeking to appoint an individual with an internationally excellent track record of research who brings an inclusive, collaborative approach and can evidence the ability to provide academic and management leadership across the School.
This Research Associate position will contribute to the Engineering Biology Transition Award within the Institute for Bioengineering at the University of Edinburgh, which is funded by UKRI. This role is UE07 and is available on a fixed term basis for up to 12 months.
The post doctoral researcher will seek to advance a recently developed interdisciplinary systems model (the Urban Systems Abstraction Hierarchy) which connects designed and ‘non-designed’ infrastructure to its intended societal and sustainability outcomes. The work is led by the EFI Centre for Future Infrastructure and will explore urban system resilience, data systems connecting engineering, social sciences, public sector and geosciences, to understand the needs of future urban infrastructure.
The successful candidate appointed will conduct research in the area of machine learning (AI) and computer vision for health in the Research Institute for Digital Communications (IDCOM) and participate in teaching and administration in Electronics and Electrical Engineering, contributing to the intellectual wealth and collegiate environment of the School of Engineering.
