A postdoc position in computational image analysis and AI is available for a highly motivated and talented researcher with expertise in quantitative image analysis (particularly in cell segmentation/tracking from multi-channel time-lapse fluorescence microscopy images) and machine learning/artificial intelligence (ML/AI; particularly novel approaches like CNNs, GANs) in the group of Prof Rafael Carazo Salas in the University of Bristol UK (

The goal of this project is to clarify and predict how individual human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs) make cell fate decisions using computational image analysis and ML/AI, by mining tens of thousands of cell lineages and millions of single-cell data points in feature space that our group routinely generates by multiday/multicolour time-lapse epifluorescence microscopy.

Applicants should hold a PhD in Computational Image Processing, Computer Vision, Machine Learning/Artificial Intelligence or a related subject.

The project is part of an international HFSP collaboration with partners in Switzerland and the USA.
