Road Campus Research Building, Headington, Oxford, OX3 7DQ
Grade 7: £32,817 - £40,322 p.a.
We are seeking a full-time Postdoctoral Research Assistant in AI for
Healthcare to join the CHI lab at the Department of Engineering Science,
Institute of Biomedical Engineering (Headington Oxford). The post is funded
by NIHR and is fixed-term for up to 12 months.
This project is about creating novel AI models to provide intelligent decision
support for patients who undergo organ transplants. The Oxford team has
developed considerable expertise in machine learning for healthcare
applications, and some of the world's largest datasets of their kind are
available for this project. A well-established pathway of translation exists
at Oxford for the development of novel healthcare technologies, their
evaluation in real healthcare systems, in collaboration with the Oxford
University Hospitals (OUH) NHS Foundation Trust, and subsequent deployment
in practice in collaboration with existing industrial partners. You will
develop a suite of interpretable algorithms that predict post-transplant graft
and patient survival, as well as patient outcomes if an organ offer is
declined. You will also be responsible for literature review, data cleaning
You should possess a relevant PhD (or be near completion) in Engineering,
Mathematics, Statistics, Computer Science or conjugate subject and have a
strong record of publication in the relevant literature. Good knowledge of
machine learning algorithms and/or statistical methods is essential, as well
as proven competence in programming methods and evidence of working well as
part of a multidisciplinary research team.
