Vacancy: Postdoctoral Research Assistant!

Leeds has been at the forefront of digital pathology research and innovation for over 15 years. A major new programme will build on this, bringing together a consortium of 28 academic, clinical and industry partners with a common vision – to create a world leading centre for digital pathology and artificial intelligence.

We are looking to appoint a Postdoctoral Research Assistant to manage and support the delivery of the “Quality Assurance” and “Image Standardisation and Interoperability” work packages within the programme with national and international partners.

A key area of delivery will be in determining the optimal display requirements for digital pathology display especially around colour. The incumbent will be required to lead on this work and support colour aspects of other research activity in stain assessment and scanner QA.

The post-holder will work closely with the work package leads, providing overall co-ordination of activities across partners, developing detailed project plans, authoring reports and policy documents and developing and delivering training to other organisations in these areas.

The post holder will also support the development of relationships and further research projects with others working in this field, helping to develop projects and secure additional research funding.

This role requires an individual who is driven, ambitious and passionate about improving patient care through the use of cutting-edge technology and who has a desire to conduct and disseminate internationally impactful work packages at the highest level. Experience of laboratory or imaging QA or interoperability (e.g. DICOM) is desirable.
