This job is an opportunity to join the School of Public Health, Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Imperial College, and work within the multidisciplinary Computational Epidemiology group of Prof M Chadeau-Hyam and work on the MRC-funded project PRISM in collaboration with the Korean Ministry of Science and ICT (MSIT), and the National Research Foundation of Korea (NRF).
This is an exciting and innovative project that combines statistics, machine learning, environmental and social sciences as well as molecular medicine to investigate molecular markers of asthma severity and response to personalised treatments. The work aims at defining molecular signatures of asthma subtypes and asthma severity and to investigate if and to what extent, these signatures are affected by personalised treatments. This work will be done under the direct supervision of Prof M Chadeau-Hyam and Dr Dragana Vuckovic, leading the statistical workpackage of the project.
You will report to Prof M Chadeau-Hyam, will have the opportunity to contribute to other large-scale international projects involving the group and will have the opportunity to contribute to teaching and supervision of MSc students from the Health Data analytics and Machine Learning programme.
Duties and responsibilities
You will be responsible for the development of advanced statistical models and machine learning algorithms to identify (i) molecular (multi-omic) signatures of asthma subtypes and severity, (ii) signature of the response to personalised treatments. Resulting statistical models should also facilitate the identification of mechanisms involved in the development and control of asthma in treated patients.
You should have a PhD in statistics, epidemiology or any related discipline.
Constructing and applying statistical models using OMICs data, biochemistry and social factors in the life course in a longitudinal set up and investigate their effect on health and ageing:
