EPSRC Centre for Mathematics of Precision Healthcare
Precision healthcare seeks to deploy therapies that are sensitive to the particular genetic, lifestyle and environmental circumstances of each patient. Understanding how best to use these numerous features about each patient is a true mathematical challenge.
The EPSRC Centre for Mathematics of Precision Healthcare at Imperial will serve as a focal point by linking up mathematical, computational and medical capabilities at Imperial around the theme of multi-scale networks for data-rich precision healthcare.
Medicine is undergoing a simultaneous shift at the levels of the individual and the population: we have unprecedented tools for precision monitoring and intervention in individual health, and we also have high-resolution behavioural and social data.
CRUK/EPSRC PhD studentships
The EPSRC CMPH has a number of PhD studentships available starting in October 2018. Successful candidates will join a centre of leading PhD students, postdocs and academics across departments at Imperial to develop the mathematical and algorithmic foundations around Machine learning, Data Science, Inference and Optimization, Network Science, and Artificial Intelligence in healthcare and medicine to help unlock this information.
Research associate position
Opportunity for a research associate to join a Horizon 2020 project aiming to address the burden of childhood obesity in European countries. The project, Science & Technology in childhood Obesity Policy (STOP), involves 31 research, advocacy and governmental organisations from 16 countries, with Imperial College London as coordinating partner.
