Developing AI-ECG models for cardiovascular risk and mortality prediction
Applications are invited for the position of post-doctoral research associate, to work at the National Heart and Lung Institute, Imperial College London. We are a multi-disciplinary team seeking a highly motivated post-doctoral research associate to join a collaborative team of clinicians, basic scientists, and physical scientists working on cardiovascular research. The present post is funded by a recently awarded £1.2M 5-year British Heart Foundation Programme Grant focused on developing new artificial intelligence (AI) models to apply to electrophysiological signals, in the form of electrocardiograms (ECG) and intracardiac electrograms (EGM).
Through various collaborators worldwide, we have access to large quantities of digital ECGs (>2 million) recorded in clinical settings, in addition to >40000 digital ECGs from the UK Biobank linked to genetic and phenotypic data, which will allow us to train a range of AI-ECG models. We also have access to a large database of intracardiac EGM data collected during invasive catheter ablation procedures.
The post-doctoral research associate will work with other members of the team to use these datasets to develop new AI-ECG models and AI-EGM models for cardiovascular risk and mortality prediction, and for diagnostic classification tasks, building on our group’s recent publications:
Duties and responsibilities
