We are seeking a Research Data Engineer to work across multiple projects. The first project is “CONNECT: Digital markers to predict psychosis relapse”. This project will recruit individuals with psychosis and use smart phone apps to collect passive and active data using a prospective observational cohort study design. We will use this data to develop and validate a personalised risk prediction algorithm for relapse. The second project is the Mental Health Mission (MHM), a strategic £42.7m investment by the UK government to transform mental health research and care across the UK by combining the strengths of UK mental health research and innovation, commercial opportunities and priorities, NHS and patient priorities, and external investment. The MHM’s ambitions are to address the significant unmet need for innovative new treatments and technologies and the development of more precise treatments and interventions. Data and digital technologies are the key to achieving these aims. 

The postholder’s main duty will be to provide data engineering in the study, with responsibility for: 

Feature engineering. Working with the prediction modellers you will identify the data needs for the statistical and machine learning approaches, including data pre-processing, and feature extraction. You will develop a data and feature dictionary for the project and participate in dissemination to the wider community.

Development, validation, and implementation of reproducible analytic data pipelines. You will develop and validate reproducible data pipelines and implement to provide a continuous data feed into the modelling environment.

Visualising and reporting study data. The project will capture high resolution raw data from a range of sensors, and you will work with the clinical study team to develop novel visualisation of study progress, including missing data. You will implement novel real-time views of complex study data and metadata for clinical teams and funders. 

You should have first degree in computer science or a similar field (or equivalent). You should have specific skills and expertise in data engineering and ideally machine learning.
