Applications are invited for a Dementia Research Institute funded Postdoctoral Research Fellow position (36 months in the first instance) based in the Surrey Sleep Research Centre led by Professor Derk-Jan Dijk and Professor Anne Skeldon in the Department of Mathematics.

This post is funded by the Dementia Research Institute (DRI) Care Research & Technology Centre, which is a collaboration between Imperial College London and the University of Surrey. The UK Dementia Research Institute (UK DRI) was created through a joint investment from the Medical Research Council (MRC), Alzheimer’s Society and Alzheimer’s Research UK.

This is an exciting opportunity to become part of a comprehensive research programme into the development and validation of methods to assess and alter circadian rhythmicity with an emphasis on sleep and circadian disturbances in dementia. The successful candidate will work across a variety of tasks and research methods to develop and evaluate models, wearable technology and machine learning algorithms for circadian rhythms and sleep monitoring in humans.

We are therefore looking for a highly motivated individual who holds a PhD in a relevant area and has an interest in human circadian rhythms, technology mathematical modelling and data science/machine learning.

For more information and informal discussions, please contact Prof Dijk (; 01483 689341)
