The University of Liverpool and Business Doctors Franchise network are seeking to appoint a high calibre and motivated individual (with an MSc or an MBA) to work on an Innovate UK funded, two-year collaborative Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) in the area of artificial intelligence for business support. The successful applicant is expected to have a keen interest in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and internet facilitated learning; and should be able to demonstrate good software engineering and programming skills compatible with the specific requirements of the programme of work. Strong problem-solving abilities in computing are also anticipated. The candidate will be based at Business Doctors, a specialist SME strategic planning and business support provider based in the North West.

Working within Business Doctors and a team from the Department of Computer Science, successful applicants will realise a programme of work that will lead to an AI-based platform for business development. This platform will allow Business Doctors to transform their traditional face-to-face delivery model into digital, personalised, affordable and accessible support that will still retain the essential element of personal engagement. Successful applicants should have at least an MSc or an MBA and a 2:1 degree or above, in Computer Science, Computer Science with Management, Business Economics, Business Management or closely related subject; PhD applicants are encouraged.

Successful applicants should also have experience of project management, ideally have some experience of conducting high quality computer science projects, and should be able to demonstrate sound software engineering skills. The Associate will spearhead the digital transformation of Business Doctors’ service offering, acting as technical lead initially to help build a Minimum Viable Product through the KTP project. Ultimately, there is the potential for this Associate role to progress towards a broader Chief Technology Officer (CTO) role with responsibility for developing and leading all technical aspects of the company’s strategy.

The post is available for two years.
