From sensors to artificial intelligence: creating dementia-friendly ‘Healthy Homes’ as intelligent environments that transform and personalise care.
This interdisciplinary and innovative centre catalyses the development of the necessary technology and data science. They will optimise these technologies in a model home environment, deploy them in real-world evaluation studies and then, having established an evidence base, deliver them to people with dementia and their carers. The centre will:
With support from the Edmond J. Safra Foundation and in conjunction with the UK DRI at Imperial and the UK DRI Centre for Care Research and Technology, we are looking to appoint a new Research Fellow. We are seeking a researcher ready to take the first steps towards setting up an independent research programme. We intend to appoint a Fellow to address a broader range of interests in bioinformatics (including, e.g. specialisations in systems/computational neuroscience, ‘omics or population studies), translational molecular cell studies or advanced neuroimaging specifically for the diagnosis, monitoring and treatment of Parkinson’s disease. A research programme will be developed and managed by the Fellow with supportive mentorship from Professor Paul Matthews, Head of the UK DRI at Imperial, Professor David Sharp, Head of the UK DRI Centre for Care and Technology or Professor Paola Piccini, Head of the Centre for Neuroinflammation and Neurodegeneration. The goal of the Fellowship is to prepare Fellows to make the transition from a traditional post-doctoral post to becoming an independent investigator. You hold A PhD or equivalent higher research degree in a relevant field plus post-doctoral or equivalent additional research training. A previous research and publication record with evidence of potential for international excellence and leadership in the chosen area of science is also necessary.
