We are looking to appoint a post-doctoral researcher with excellent programming skills and interest in decision support systems, to join a multi-disciplinary team on the NIHR funded programme, ‘Improving the lives of stroke survivors with data.’ The post holder will be responsible for developing portal environments for stroke survivors, researchers, and health workers, centred around the South London Stroke Register (SLSR).
The programme aims to improve the lives of stroke survivors by improved use of data, and is strongly multi-disciplinary, including collaboration with statisticians, epidemiologists, social scientists, health economists, policy makers, and stroke survivors and their carers. We aim to improve patient care by allowing effective planning of services, personalised care, and reducing inequalities in access to care and outcomes after stroke. The post-holder will have expertise in health informatics and lead and contribute to these aspects in the Programme.
In this post, initially funded for 3 years, the Research Associate will initially adapt the CONSULT decision support system to collect patient self-reported data on stroke care and outcomes, and integrate reporting from wireless sensors, with the goal of enriching the SLSR. In the next stage of the project, that data will be used to learn patient phenotypes present in the data.
The postholder will have completed a MSc/PhD in a computational discipline and have experience and expertise in programming and at least an interest in machine learning (ML), artificial intelligence (AI), or knowledge representation. They will be someone who thrives in a highly collaborative and interdisciplinary environment, but is able to work independently, solve problems and deliver research to tight deadlines. The postholder will be well organised and have excellent communication skills.
King’s is committed to fostering an environment of equality, diversity and inclusion.
This post will be offered on an a fixed-term contract for 3 years with the possibility of an extension, subject to funding.
