Embedded Image Processing Systems Engineer

The University of Strathclyde has an established record of collaboration with industry partners, including local Small to Medium Enterprises (SMEs). The Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering is pleased to be partnering with Peacock Technology Ltd. on a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) project in the area of embedded image processing systems.

Peacock Technology is an engineering consultancy specialising in electronic, software, and mechanical design, based in Stirling, Central Scotland. As well as providing consultancy services, Peacock also has an increasing focus on own-product development. The KTP project will support product development by focusing on embedded image processing and vision techniques for 3-dimensional imaging, and the development of time-of-flight camera technology. The project will involve the entire process from research and development, implementation and integration, to testing, manufacturing, and product launch.

KTP is a three-way collaboration between an Associate, a Company, and a University (for further information, see: http://www.ktpws.org.uk). The Associate undertakes and manages a strategic project for the company, while being supported by Academic and Industry supervisors. As part of the KTP, the Associate benefits from management training opportunities and a further budget of £4,000 for personal development. Opportunities also exist to develop research papers, and to engage in the academic community at Strathclyde.  At the end of the 2 year partnership there may be an employment opportunity for the Associate with the company.

To be considered for this role, you will be educated to a minimum of Degree level in a relevant engineering discipline (such as Electronic & Electrical Engineering, Computer Systems Engineering or equivalent).  You will have relevant experience in embedded systems development, and you will demonstrate an enthusiasm for this role, be adaptable, and have excellent project management and technical communication skills.   

Whilst not essential for the role, applications are welcomed from candidates educated to PhD level in a relevant engineering discipline (such as Electronic & Electrical Engineering, Computer Systems Engineering or equivalent).  

Please note that the post will be based at Peacock Technology’s premises: Alpha Centre, Stirling University Innovation Park, Stirling, FK9 4NF. This location is accessible both by car and public transport.
