To deliver its sustainable top 30 ambition Swansea University needs a professional services workforce with the differentiated skills necessary to ensure that it can deliver excellence through efficient and effective systems and processes that harness innovations in technology.
DPUK is a founding partner in the newly launched Alzheimer's Disease Data Initiative (ADDI) and its Alzheimer's disease (AD) Workbench. The AD Workbench will facilitate interoperability across data platforms and enable researchers to work with multiple datasets. With a federated model of data sharing, the AD Workbench allows permitted researchers to import their datasets, access, and transfer data from other platforms. Swansea University has been instrumental in developing and testing federated analysis methodologies within trusted research environments.
The successful applicant will join the DPUK team and will contribute to activities to provide policy relevant insights into using dementia cohort data using federated methodologies; produce robust high quality analysis suitable for publication in academic journals; demonstrate the value of data harmonisation and data federation across a wide range of cohort data. The successful candidate will also take responsibility for ensuring research ready datasets are created and available on the ADWB workbench and work with the team to develop a successful federated analysis service for ADWB users.
