Description

We are seeking four full-time Postdoctoral Research Assistants in AI for Healthcare to join the Computational Health Informatics Laboratory, in the Institute of Biomedical Engineering, in the Department of Engineering Science (Headington). The post is funded by the EPSRC, and is fixed-term for 24 months with a possibility of extension.


These posts are part of a collaboration with senior colleagues in the Medical Sciences Division and the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. You will be responsible for developing machine learning methods to improve our understanding of patient physiological conditions, across a number of high-profile collaborations. This will be based on developing tools for analysing very large electronic health record and sensor datasets from the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.


You should have a PhD (or be close to completion) in machine learning, computer science, signal processing, computational statistics, or cognate discipline. You should also have experience of working in a highly interdisciplinary team, with a good publication record in the scientific literature.


Informal enquiries may be addressed to Professor David Clifton of the Department of Engineering Science (email: davidc@robots.ox.ac.uk).


You will be required to upload a covering letter/supporting statement, including a brief statement of research interests (describing how past experience and future plans fit with the advertised position), CV and the details of two referees as part of your online application.


Only applications received before 12.00 midday on 2 January 2020 can be considered.


The Department holds an Athena Swan Bronze award, highlighting its commitment to promoting women in Science, Engineering and Technology.
