About us The Biomedical Optics Research Laboratory (BORL) within the Department of Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering at UCL is internationally recognized for developing optical methods for biological applications, including NIRS, optical imaging and photo-acoustic. The laboratory has a substantial skill base in physics, engineering, mathematical modelling and the development of optical systems. A significant strength of the BORL is the translation of laboratory-based research into reliable and robust systems which are being used to address a wide range of basic science and clinical questions. This job will be within Prof. Tachtsidis MultiModal Spectrosopy group within BORL, one of the largest groups in NIRS technology development and application in the UK. Prof. Tachtsidis group have a long-standing collaboration with University College London Hospitals (UCLH) and lead a highly engaging outreach team and public engagement activit! ies group called MetaboLight (www.metabolight.org). More information on the department’s research and teaching activities can be found at: https://www.ucl.ac.uk/medical-physics-biomedical-engineering/
About the role This is a fixed-term role until September 2023 in the first instance. Appointment at Grade 8, (£47,414 to £50,047 per annum including London Allowance) is dependent on meeting the specific essential criteria for Grade 8 as listed in the person specification.

Applications are invited for a Senior/Research Fellow position to join the programme of medical\clinical data analytics within the Biomedical Optics Research Laboratory at UCL. This post will support our recent successful Wellcome Leap Grant focused on the development of novel optical sensing instrumentation and data analytic techniques that can be used at the maternity unit to monitor placenta and foetal brain function. Placental malfunction and maldevelopment can result in conditions like preeclampsia, gestational diabetes, prematurity, and stillbirth. The post will be largely software development and data analytics that if successful will lead to an extensive clinical feasibility study with our collaborators at University College London Hospital, London, UK and All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS). New Delhi, India.
The post is available immediately and will be initially funded to Sept 2023 in the first instance.
About you All candidates must have a PhD (or about to submit a PhD) or have equivalent experience in computer science, engineering, physics or a related subject; with the knowledge, skills and experience to develop and implement machine learning approaches for medical\healthcare applications and analytics. Additionally, for the post to be awarded at Grade 8 - these minimum grade 8 criterion will apply in addition to everything else on the person specification - Candidates must also have a minimum of 5 years job\research experience post PhD in a relevant field (this is a Grade 8 requirement only*) - Experience in supervising Staff or PhD students. (Grade 8 only*) Please read the job description and person specification carefully before applying, to ensure you meet all the relevant essential criteria.
