Postdoc Position in Rough Path Theory for Applications

Applicants are invited to apply for a postdoctoral fellowship position in computer vision at Imperial College London, UK. The initial contract for this position is 48 months and posible to extend. Applications are invited up to August 30, 2019.

Applications are invited for a Research Associate position at the Mathematics Department at Imperial College London. The position is funded by the EPSRC as part of the Programme Grant Unparameterised multi-modal data, high order signatures, and the mathematics of data science (DATASIG) and will be part of a multi-university research group (Imperial College London, Oxford and UCL) with a hub at the Alan Turing Institute. Through a collaboration between leading mathematicians and leading domain scientists, the Programme will create a powerful and generic set of mathematical and computational tools for the analysis of complex multimodal data streams and to establish their effective use in four applied challenges (ACs): Mental Health, Radio Astronomy, Human Machine Interfaces and Computer Vision. Each area will be supported by at least one PDRA.

The successful candidate is expected to make significant contributions to the project in Radio Astronomy and play an active part in the wider development of the project, interacting creatively with the PDRAs associated to the other applied teams as well as those working on the mathematical foundations.

You will work closely with Thomas Cass (Co-I Maths, Imperial College London) and the Project Partner Bojan Nikolic (Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge) to develop rough path methods in the design of measurement devices used in Radio Astronomy. Some goals are to extend the range of quickly detectable astronomical sources, to include examples such as fast transient bursts, and to mitigate the effect of radio frequency interference in low-frequency Radio Astronomy.

You will also work closely with the other investigators: Terry Lyons (PI, Oxford), Hao Ni (Co-I, UCL) and Harald Oberhauser (Co-I, Oxford), with the other PDRAs in the wider DatatSigTeam, with the software engineer, and where appropriate, with other project partners

You will spend roughly half of their time at the Mathematics Department at Imperial College London and around two days a week at the Alan Turing Institute (in particular to attend the liaison meetings of the team) and will actively engage with the investigators, and generally, be an enthusiastic and committed full time postdoctoral researcher in the team. The RA will be expected to undertake extended secondments to Cambridge to work with Bojan Nikolic's group.

A PhD (or equivalent) in Mathematics or a field related to the Programme

Research in rough path theory and related areas

Clear evidence of outstanding promise and originality in research, with a good publication record, commensurate with career stage

Ability to identify, develop and apply concepts, techniques and methods in new contexts

Ability to keep accurate records of research results and activity, help with reporting

Ability to conduct a detailed review of recent literature

Creative and open approach to problem-solving

Ability to assess resource requirements and deploy them effectively

The position is for 48 months. The expected start date is 1st October 2019 or as soon thereafter as is practical.

*Candidates who have not yet been officially awarded their PhD will be appointed as 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.
