We are recruiting a post-doctoral natural language processing (NLP) researcher to join our team of NLP specialists, data scientists, clinicians, and engineers, in support of a new project funded by a multi-site UKPRP award for a Violence, Health and Society research consortium. The successful applicant will join a team leading NLP research and methodology development, and their application to electronic health records (EHRs) and other text to solve real-word health research questions. The project in this instance builds on recent NLP to ascertain instances of received, perpetrated, and witnessed violence, applied to mental healthcare EHRs. The post-holder will further develop this work to improve the characterisation of these experiences and to facilitate the application of NLP across text from different administrative sources. The post-holder will collaborate with a multi-disciplinary, multi-agency team to access relevant text, and to define requirements for NLP.
King’s College London, through collaborations with Health Data Research UK (HDR UK: https://www.hdruk.ac.uk), the Centre for Translational Informatics (CTI; https://ctiuk.org/) and the NIHR Maudsley Biomedical Research Centre (BRC; https://www.maudsleybrc.nihr.ac.uk/), is at the forefront of clinical NLP and health data science research in the UK. We pride ourselves on the impact of our research, which has led to the deployment of novel informatics applications and platforms to King’s Health Partners (KHP; https://www.kingshealthpartners.org/) and other NHS sites across London and the UK. These applications are beginning to realise the potential of large-scale analytics and reuse afforded by electronic health records, and the promise of data driven healthcare.
