Research Associate: Artificial Intelligence in Cardiovascular Disease

Department : Biomedical Engineering

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) have the potential to transform cardiology. We are seeking to appoint a data scientist/engineer to develop and apply state of the art AI methods to benefit patient outcomes at St Thomas' Hospital and other major London centres for cardiovascular disease. This project will develop and apply state of the art machine learning methods to automatically analyse patient data, in order to provide doctors with detailed information on the type, location and severity of heart disease.

The role will require the application and refinement of tools to 1) access databases in a manner consistent with patient privacy and data protection regulations, 2) collate relevant information on the status of the patient, 3) analyse the data, and 4) provide reports and derived data on the anatomy and function of the heart back into the clinical databases. This will include analysis of clinical data and medical images to provide geometric models of the heart, as well as analysis of scar, tissue characteristics and perfusion information. These data will be used to develop predictive models of patient outcome in relation to disease status, treatments, and interventions.

The role will require the use of databases and development of data analysis methodologies, including regression and classification techniques. This role requires excellent software development skills, including requirement analysis, design, development, testing, and maintenance of different software components. In addition, the role provides the opportunity for research that develops novel methodologies for AI in cardiovascular disease.

This post will be offered on a fixed-term contract for 30 months. 
This is a full-time post - 100% full time equivalent. 
The selection process will include a panel interview, a presentation.
