Research Assistant / Associate in Computer Vision and Pervasive Sensing

Imperial College London, UK is inviting applicants to apply for a postdoctoral scholar position in artificial intelligence. Applications should be sent before August 14, 2019.

We are seeking to hire a Research Assistant or Research Associate to develop an Innovative Passive Dietary Monitoring System, funded by a major Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation grant

The Hamlyn Centre is dedicated to developing safe, effective and accessible imaging, sensing and robotics technologies that can reshape the future of healthcare. Focusing on technological innovation but with a strong emphasis on clinical translation and direct patient benefit with a global impact, the centre is at the forefront of research in imaging, sensing and robotics for addressing global health challenges associated with demographic, environment, social and economic changes.

Computer Vision; Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning; Audio signal processing; Wearable and pervasive sensing; Technology translation; Testing and validation and conducting human studies.

The aim of this project is to develop a passive dietary monitoring system for both adults and children living in Low and Middle-Income Countries (LMICs) which will accurately report food and nutritional intake. In particular, through integrating wearable and fixed cameras together with pervasive sensors, the monitoring system will detect and capture eating episodes, classify food types from the camera images, estimate the ingestion volume and deduce the nutrient intake of the individual. The system will be validated in rural and urban settings in two African countries (Kenya and Ghana).

This is a full-time, fixed-term appointment up to 30th April 2020.

Candidates who have not yet been officially awarded their PhD will be appointed as a Research Assistant within the salary range 34,397 – 37,486 per annum.

The College is a proud signatory to the San-Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA), which means that in hiring and promotion decisions, we evaluate applicants on the quality of their work, not the journal impact factor where it is published.For more information, see

The College believes that the use of animals in research is vital to improve human and animal health and welfare. Animals may only be used in research programmes where their use is shown to be necessary for developing new treatments and making medical advances. Imperial is committed to ensuring that, in cases where this research is deemed essential, all animals in the College's care are treated with full respect, and that all staff involved with this work show due consideration at every level.
