Post-doctoral Research Fellow, School of Computer Science
Applications are invited for a Temporary post of a Post-doctoral Research Fellow Level 2 within UCD School of Computer Science.
Mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI), or concussion, is the most common type of traumatic brain injury. With mTBI comes symptoms that include headaches, fatigue, depression, anxiety, and irritability, as well as impaired cognitive function. Symptom resolution is thought to occur within 3 months post-injury, except for a small percentage of individuals who are said to experience persistent post-concussion syndrome. The number of individuals who experience persistent symptoms appears to be low despite clear evidence of longer-term pathophysiological changes resulting from mTBI.
UCD together with Contego Sports Ltd have established a new research programme, NProSend, focussed on the design and develop a computational head model (inclusive of N-Pro headgear) that can accurately predict the behaviour of the brain (specifically brain resonance patterns and transient development of stress and strain) when impacted according to typical Rugby-specific impact scenarios. We will deal with the identification and selection of sensor technologies (off-the-shelf) for the trial, contribution to the multi-modal specification and data analysis plans and identify ML models for the multi-modal datasets.
This is an advanced research focused role, building on your prior experience as a post-doctoral fellow, where you will conduct a specified programme of research supported by research training under the supervision and direction of a Principal Investigator.
The primary purpose of the role is to develop new or advanced research skills and competences, on the processes of publication in peer-reviewed academic publications and scholarly dissemination, the development of funding proposals, and the supervision and mentorship of graduate students along with the opportunity to develop your skills in research led teaching.
In addition to the Principal Duties and Responsibilities listed below, the successful candidate will also carry out the following duties specific to this project:
- Develop sophisticated data analytics techniques and will apply a range of machine learning approaches to build predictive models.
- Work on Data Quality Improvements and Data Integration and Warehousing
Post-doctoral Research Fellow Level 2 Salary range: 49,790 - 51,193 per annum.
Appointment on the above range will be dependent upon qualifications and experience.
Closing date: 17:00hrs (local Irish time) on 6th of June 2023.
Applications must be submitted by the closing date and time specified. Any applications which are still in progress at the closing time of 17:00hrs (Local Irish Time) on the specified closing date will be cancelled automatically by the system.
UCD are unable to accept late applications.
UCD do not require assistance from Recruitment Agencies. Any CV's submitted by Recruitment Agencies will be returned.
