About the role:
We are looking for one candidate to contribute to the success of the new data-driven AI initiatives at the Cancer Biomarker Centre (CBC) to work on safe and explainable AI models for supporting the development of complex biomarkers. This position will be hosted at the digital Experimental Cancer Medicine Team (digital ECMT) at the CBC.
You will develop and evaluate novel multi-layer complex biomarkers supported by contemporary AI methods with a particular focus on data fusion, explainability and safety aspects. The project will involve the continuous interaction with experts in cancer research. You will develop and evaluate new models in the context of their accuracy, interpretability, safety and utility to domain experts. This position may include research on a diverse set of techniques such as neuro-symbolic approaches, variational autoencoders, explainable AI and adversarial methods.
The digital ECMT, within CRUK Manchester Institute Cancer Biomarker Centre, aims to digitally empower patients and healthcare professionals to innovate and design new cancer care pathways.
You will have a PhD in Computer Science or Bioinformatics or related area, OR a relevant postgraduate degree in computer science or bioinformatics (or related field) along with significant relevant experience and with exposure to contemporary AI methods. Experience in neuro-symbolic and explainable AI methods is desirable. Development of complex AI software prototypes in Python and Pytorch is required.
Why choose Cancer Research UK Manchester Institute?
