Research Fellow at Imperial College London

Imperial College London, UK is offering postdoc position in signal processing. The funds for this fellowship are available for 24 months. Applications are welcome before December 16, 2018.

Precision healthcare seeks to deploy therapies that are sensitive to the particular genetic, lifestyle and environmental circumstances of each patient. Understanding how best to use these numerous features about each patient is a true mathematical challenge. The EPSRC Centre for Mathematics of Precision Healthcare will bring together mathematicians with researchers in computing, engineering and medicine. Funded with a 2 million grant from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, researchers will take data from the healthcare sector and turn it into information and tools that are useful to inform clinical decisions and public health campaigns to improve the overall health of people in the UK.

- You will plan and lead the development and implementation of novel mathematics methods

in healthcare and medical research; - You will develop, apply and provide custom analyses for a wide variety of patient data;

- You will investigate a broad range of data driven approaches in medical and healthcare

research including machine learning, data assimilation and computational physiology; - You will independently plan and carry out research in accordance with the project aims;

- You will be engaged in cutting edge applied data science research;

- You will take initiatives in the planning and leading of independent research;

- You will direct the work of small research teams, supervising and taking responsibility for

the research team; - You will publish research papers in peer-reviewed journals;

- You will attend and present research at international conferences;

- You will develop contacts and research collaborations within the College and the wider

community; - You will supervise postdoctoral researchers, postgraduate students and undergraduate

research projects; - You will lead in the design and delivery of DSI postgraduate education programmes;

- You will be committed to personal development in order to succeed in career progression.

We are looking for a researcher who has:

- A very good academic track record including a first or upper second class degree and a PhD

in computer science or a closely related discipline, or equivalent research, industrial or commercial experience; - A background in computational science, in particular optimisation, data analysis, machine

learning and data assimilation techniques; - High level analytical skills, and the ability to ensure the validity and reliability of data;

- Background in signal processing, in particular systems identification and filter theory;

- Experience of implementation of data assimilation techniques within complex multi-physics

unstructured adaptive mesh models, and in particular fluid dynamics; - Experience of modern programming in languages including Fortran, C++ and Python;

- Experience working within substantial scientific computational projects and large multi-

disciplinary environments; - Excellent oral and written communication skills;

- Publications in high quality journals;

- Presented work at significant conferences;

- Strong leadership and management skills.

This is a full-time, fixed-term position for 24 months.
