University of Leeds School of Computing

Research Software Engineer

Are you a skilled and motivated computer software professional looking for your next challenge? Are you interested in supporting academics in one of the leading research-intensive universities in the UK by helping them to bridge the gap between research and clinical applications? Do you have experience in medical image computing, computational modelling, medical informatics and data analytics?

We are looking for a talented and highly competent Research Software Engineer (RSE) focused on the delivery of research output as funded by the Tony Bramall Charitable Trust. The role will involve working as part of a wider team of experienced RSEs, academics and clinicians in the delivery and expansion of software to enable and enhance the development, testing and deployment of healthcare focussed data science research.

You will be based in the (CISTIB), within the Faculties of Engineering & Physical Sciences and Medicine & Health, comprising various academics and research groups. It focuses on algorithmic and applied research in computational imaging, computational physiology modelling, and simulation. CISTIB is also part of the Leeds Institute of Cardiovascular and Metabolic Medicine (LICAMM). We also work in close cooperation with clinicians from various research centres within the University and the academic hospitals of the Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust (LTHT), the largest NHS Trust of the UK. The Centre also has close connections with the Leeds Institute for Data Analytics, the Centre for HealthTech Innovation, the Leeds Institute for Fluid Dynamics, and the Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering.

Clinical areas where CISTIB focuses on are neurology, cardiology, rheumatology and oncology. In addition, we create diagnostic/prognostic quantitative imaging biomarkers, computational medicine methods, interventional planning, guidance, and in silico trials solutions. The Centre hosts academics, researchers, graduate students, ad research software engineers, and project managers, forming a cross-disciplinary team committed to working collectively towards the clinical translation of their innovations.
