About the Role
We are looking for an experienced researcher who is keen to share in the vision of DERI. You will have a clear vision for the growth of the research field, and how DERI is an ideal environment to nurture this. You will become a key member of the DERI leadership team, contributing to our development, as well as inspiring, and leading on expanding research in this space to deliver outstanding, interdisciplinary research achievements.
This role is a research-intensive professorship and one of four key strategic academic appointments to DERI. These roles are unique in that they are dedicated to research and have minimal, if any, teaching responsibilities associated with them. Each post comes with a generous package to facilitate the growth of your research group, and the forging of collaborations, enabling you to seamlessly establish yourself at DERI. This role provides you with exceptional scope to define the research strategy in this area and lead its delivery, working closely with the Director of DERI.
We consider the Healthcare AI theme in the broadest of terms, from discovery to translation. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, computational medicine, healthcare digital twins, health data science, synthetic healthcare data, predictive systems, with relevant approaches such as machine and deep learning, natural language processing, computer vision, and / or bioinformatics.
You will have a PhD in a relevant field or have an equivalent qualification or experience, with strong research expertise in AI at a national and international level, including publications in internationally renowned journals. You should have a strong track record in delivering collaborative, data-driven biomedical and/or healthcare projects underpinned by machine learning and AI.
