Campus: South Kensington, London
Closing date: 16th October 2023
The Biomechatronics Laboratory at Imperial College London (https://www.biomechatronicslab.co.uk) is seeking multiple engineering to support the development of wearable systems, mechatronic design, and machine learning for health monitoring.
The goal of all the projects are to combine machine learning with mechatronic fabrication and artificial intelligence (AI) in order to develop preventative care for people with a range of health conditions, using signal processing to collect and analyse data relating to movement and wellbeing. We are looking for researchers with a track record in Data Science, Mechatronics, Clinical Data Collection, and Artificial Intelligence (AI). This represents a unique opportunity for a researcher with a strong research track record and experience in neural recording, stimulation, signal processing, and wearable systems.
Due to the nature of this role, we will be shortlisting candidate as applications are received. We therefore reserve the right to close this vacancy as soon as a suitable candidate has been appointed. It is therefore advisable that you submit your application as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
Duties and Responsibilities
- You will develop telemedicine wearable systems to gather data from medical patients both in and out-of-clinic.
- You will interact with patients directly, collecting data as part of the patient’s health plans.
- You will deploy home medical wearables for clinical monitoring and telemedicine.
- You will be conducting large scale data analysis using signal processing, machine learning for diagnostics and artificial intelligence for treatment of medical conditions.
- You will work closely with clinical doctors and behavioural therapists to extract key features from data gathered in relation to human-robot cognitive engagement.
- You will organize patient testing ethics and participate in writing of new research grant applications.
Skills, knowledge and experience
- You will need experience in a some combination of artificial intelligence, social robotics, voice agents and neurorobotics is essential for this post.
- Programming skills in C, C++ and/or Python as well as some experience in app development are advantageous, as is experience (demonstrated by publications) in testing and deployment of social robots and/or intelligent voice agents.
- A good bed-side manner and ability to interact with patients calmly and professionally is highly desirable.
This role is available for up to 24 months in the first instance. The position will be subject to a 6-month probationary period.
Candidates who have not yet been officially awarded their PhD will be appointed as a Research Assistant within the salary range £40,694 to £43,888 per annum.

The College believes that the use of animals in research is vital to improve human and animal health and welfare. Animals may only be used in research programmes where their use is shown to be necessary for developing new treatments and making medical advances. Imperial is committed to ensuring that, in cases where this research is deemed essential, all animals in the College’s care are treated with full respect, and that all staff involved with this work show due consideration at every level. http://www.imperial.ac.uk/research-and-innovation/about-imperial-research/research-integrity/animal-research/
