Coventry University is seeking an Associate Professor in Epidemiology and Evidence Based Healthcare to join its Centre for Intelligent Healthcare. The Centre aims to become a globally recognised research centre for pioneering and opinion-setting research in the area of digital healthcare and its contribution to improving communities and enriching and prolonging individual lives. This is one of several positions being advertised to build capacity in epidemiology and evidence-based medicine through the application of health data science and health data analytics. 

The Centre is already home to a vibrant programme of work across two other themes - Prototype Design and Testing, and Behavioural and Implementation Science - and includes projects in the development of online digital healthcare platforms, wearable and remote monitoring technologies, biomedical signal processing, A.I. algorithms in healthcare, big data analytics and device innovation. Our health technology development is person centred, embracing a holistic model of healthcare derived from the needs of local, national and international communities.  It undergoes testing from early piloting to RCTs. We have an established programme of research in violence and health; faith-based communities, living with long-term conditions and an international RCT of Technology-Enabled Remote Monitoring and Self-Management intervention for those living with cardiovascular disease. 

This is an excellent opportunity for someone with drive and ambition in a new team in the Epidemiology and Evidence Based Healthcare Theme to initiate new programmes in the study of chronic health conditions. The ideal candidate should be able to demonstrate both the development of novel methodologies, as well as the application of such methods to real-world epidemiological/public health problems. The successful candidate will be internationally recognised, with a strong track record of attracting funding and an extensive portfolio of high-quality publications. The post holder will develop the academic and commercial potential within the Centre for Intelligent Healthcare to ensure this continues to reflect the leadership of interdisciplinary research whilst delivering excellence with impact in line with our Corporate Strategy.
