We are looking for an individual with a PhD or equivalent experience in machine learning and data science, and ideally with experience working in healthcare/sleep or related application areas. You will also have some experience in presenting your work to a wide range of stakeholders and a track record publishing novel scientific research.
This Research Fellow post is based within the Surrey Sleep Research Centre (SSRC) and the Centre for Vision, Speech and Signal Processing (CVSSP).
The SSRC, led by Prof Derk-Jan Dijk and located within the Department of Clinical Research Innovation, conducts multidisciplinary research on sleep and circadian rhythms in human and animals. The SSRC undertakes a wide range of research studies across the ‘bench to bedside’ spectrum. The research is enabled by our excellent clinical and support staff and state of the art clinical and biomedical research facilities.
CVSSP, led by Prof Adrian Hilton, is an internationally recognised leader in audio-visual machine perception research. With a diverse community of more than 150 researchers, we are one of the largest audio and vision research groups in the UK. Research in the Centre has led to award-winning spin-out companies in the biometric, communication, medical and creative industries.
The current post is funded by the Dementia Research Institute Care-Research& Technology Programme. This programme brings together investigators from Imperial College, Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and the University of Surrey. At the University of Surrey, investigators from the SSRC, CVSSP and Mathematics collaborate to evaluate and integrate novel technologies for the benefit and care of people with dementia. The postholder will be responsible for research on multimodal contactless methods to monitor sleep, as well as the evaluation, validation and implementation of novel algorithms to quantify sleep in dementia. The post holder will also be expected to contribute to the acquisition of data as part of the research team.
We are a global community of staff and students, working and learning in an inspiring, innovative and diverse environment to make a positive impact through education and research. We have a bold vision of what we want to achieve through the talents and endeavour of every employee so your work will make a real, impactful difference.
