Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Researcher in Statistical Machine Learning to join the Oxford-Novartis Collaboration for AI in Medicine, at the Big Data Institute.

This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced researcher to join a team with a strong focus on developing state of the art statistical machine learning algorithms for the characterisation of Multiple Sclerosis as an early progressive disease and across the disease continuum using a unique massive database of Novartis’ clinical trials from the past 20 years.

As Postdoctoral Researcher in Statistical Machine Learning, you will adapt existing and develop state of the art statistical machine learning methods in disease modelling. You will conduct comprehensive and systematic literature and database searches, as well as managing your own academic research and administrative activities. This will involve small scale project management, to co-ordinate multiple aspects of work, alongside developing ideas for generating research income, and presenting detailed research proposals to senior researchers. You will hold a PhD/DPhil (or close to completion) in a related discipline and have practical experience of machine learning and Bayesian statistical analysis tools. You will have demonstrable experience of manipulating and analysing large scale data. You will have sufficient specialist knowledge in the discipline to work within established research programmes and will have the ability to manage your own academic research and associated activities. It is essential that you have previous experience of contributing to publications and presentations, as well as contributing ideas for new research projects and research income generation. You will also have excellent communication skills, including the ability to write for publication and present research proposals and results.

This position is offered full time on a fixed term contract for 24 months and is funded by the Novartis.
