Research Studentship in AI for Healthcare

3.5-year D.Phil. studentship

Supervisor: Prof David Clifton

There is an urgent, unmet need for reliable, intelligent systems that can monitor patients in hospitals and in the home. Delays in recognition of the needs of a patient can worsen outcomes and increase healthcare costs. Intelligent systems are required to address the needs of patients in optimising care pathways. The Computational Health Informatics Lab at Oxford University is at the forefront of research and developing such systems. 

This NIHR-funded PhD project will focus on the use of wearable technology, ranging from consumer items (e.g. Fitbits and Apple watches) to FDA-cleared devices, to monitor patients both at home and in hospital settings. Within this broad topic the student will have the scope to focus on aspects of this in which they have most interest. This could be, for example, investigating early warning of tropical diseases in LMICs, or developing ward-level monitoring of patients in UK hospitals. The studentship would be suitable for applicants with general interests in machine learning, signal processing, computational statistics, and biomedical engineering. It is an opportunity to work in a thriving engineering lab with close working relationships with UK clinicians and international partners.
