We are looking for highly experienced postdocs to work on the SPHERE project. This is an ideal career opportunity if you are looking to make your mark in machine learning and data mining for health applications.
Since the project is in its early stages you will have considerable freedom to develop your own research programme within the context of the project.

Funded by EPSRC with a total of GBP 12M over 5 years, SPHERE (a Sensor Platform for Healthcare in a Residential Environment) is building an interdisciplinary team of over 50 researchers, students, academics and clinicians to address the real world health and wellbeing challenges that face 21st Century societies. We are seeking to employ one or two experienced post-doctoral researchers who will play a leading role in the Machine Learning and Data Mining work package. Working with work package leader Prof Peter Flach, you will be contributing to and help coordinate a key part of the project aiming to provide activity models in support of the decision-making process. Successful applicants will have a strong track record of success beyond PhD-level in machine learning and data mining, but will also have the breadth, vision and ambition needed to work day-to-day with some of the UK's most distinguished clinicians and clinical scientists.
