We are looking for a person to work on the SCONe (Scottish Clinical Optometry Network e-research, https://www.ed.ac.uk/ophthalmology/scone) project and contribute to data retrieval (i.e. retinal photographs) from community optometrists in Scotland. The post holder will also involve and engage patients and the public with SCONe by organising and running focus groups and designing and carrying out a programme of qualitative research around patient and public perspectives on the use of unconsented medical data for research and the adoption of AI technology in optometry. Full time or part time working would be considered. Initial post length is 9 months with high likelihood of further extension.
SCONe is an exciting interdisciplinary project for the collection, curation and classification of retinal images and has the primary aim to investigate early-intermediate Age-related Macular Degeneration biomarkers and more widely, establish a world-leading retinal imaging biorepository. The current post will support data collection efforts and design and carry out a programme of qualitative research around patient and public perspectives on the use of unconsented medical data for research and the adoption of AI technology in optometry.
