There has never been a more exciting time to come to Portsmouth. The University of Portsmouth has a bold new vision, shaping a new breed of university where collaboration and partnership underpin how they work and evidenced by achievements such as TEF Gold, strong REF outcomes and league table performance. Alongside this Portsmouth Hospitals University NHS Trust (PHU) has built a well-earned reputation for clinical excellence in many areas with a strong track record in research and innovation and have taken steps to further enhance this reputation with the support of their university partners.
The University and PHU have recently launched a joint strategy (2020-2025) with the following aims: developing joint clinical and academic excellence; improving the local population health and wellbeing; expanding the provision of joint healthcare research and innovation, education and training; and further enhancing the reputations of both institutions which will have lasting benefits for staff, patients and our students.
The creation of Clinical Academic Chairs is integral to this strategy. We aim to attract international research leaders who will drive academic and clinical innovation to benefit the whole community. The Professor of Digital Health will have a unique opportunity to work with the University of Portsmouth’s Institute for Cosmology and Gravitation (ICG), a world-leading research institute with extensive expertise in developing advanced statistical and machine learning methods for sophisticated data analysis. The ICG is committed to driving innovative new approaches in digital health that leverage the latest data processing techniques.
This is a new position that is the result of a greater strategic partnership between UoP and PHU to build new initiatives in the area of digital health; it represents an exceptional opportunity for a talented and ambitious individual with established research experience and an outstanding academic track record to shape this progressive agenda. Through major international collaborations, members of the ICG have extensive experience in data collection and curation to service the needs of diverse users. These techniques, which are used to create a virtual observatory for the Universe, can be extended to the area of digital health. The new Professor of Digital Health will have a unique opportunity to build a program that combines the latest state-of-the-art data analysis techniques with diverse clinical work undertaken at PHU.
This is an academic post with an appointment through the UoP and PHU, based at both the University and Queen Alexandra Hospital and the successful candidate will join a fast-paced and hugely supportive team in a highly rewarding environment.
