Research Associate in Statistical Uncertainty for Risk Quantification in Cardiac Surgery

The Department of Mathematical Sciences at Durham University invites applications for a postdoctoral position, to begin ideally as soon as possible after the closing date. The post-holder will conduct research in statistical methodology related to the project 
‘Developing a real-time Intensive Care Risk Identification System (IRIS) for the early identification and treatment of complications following cardiac surgery’ funded by the British Heart Foundation and in partnership with the University of Manchester.

The research will use state-of-the-art statistical methodology for uncertainty analysis in a clinical context, in partnership with cardiac surgery experts. The aim is to develop new systems for monitoring post-operative patient states for the purpose of early identification of risks such as acute kidney injury. There will be a particular emphasis on Bayesian dynamic modelling and decision support.

This is a 30 month fixed term, externally funded post, formed on the basis of appointment at the bottom of Grade 7.

Applications should address explicitly in the covering letter the essential and desirable characteristics listed below.

Applications are particularly welcome from women and black and minority ethnic candidates, who are under-represented in academic posts in the University.
