The Centre for Computational Imaging and Simulation Technologies in Biomedicine (CISTIB), within the Schools of Computing and Medicine, involves various academics and their research groups. CISTIB focuses on algorithmic and applied research in the areas of computational imaging, and image-based computational physiology modelling and simulation. CISTIB contributes in different areas of medical image computing and image-based biomechanical and computational physiology modelling. CISTIB works in close cooperation with clinicians from various research centres from the University of Leeds and the academic hospitals of the Leeds Teaching Hospital Trust Foundation, the largest NHS Trust of the UK.

Clinical areas where CISTIB members have contributed to, and made substantive innovations in the field, are focused around the cardiovascular, musculoskeletal and neural systems, where they have developed diagnostic and prognostic quantitative image-based biomarkers and methods and systems for interventional planning and guidance. The centre hosts academic members from the University of Leeds and Research Fellows, Research Associates, PhD Students and Scientific Software Developers forming a cross-disciplinary team committed to clinical translation of their innovations.

You will be part of the Scientific Software Development (SSD) team that is the responsible for the development and maintenance of the MULTI-X Platform, the GIMIAS platform, and prototypes developed for specific domains based on these platforms, and prototypes we develop as part of our involvement in local and international projects. SSD activities include but are not limited to: support, dissemination, training and software development. As a senior member of the team, you will contribute at the technical and management level to accomplish the different challenges and project objectives and will contribute to the planning of joint research projects led by the Principal Investigator.
