Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Deep Learning for Sleep Staging

Applications to be received by 12pm on Wednesday 12th of December 2018

Grade 7: £32,236 - £39,609 p.a.

We are seeking a full-time Postdoctoral Research Assistant to join the Institute of Biomedical Engineering, in the Department of Engineering Science (Headington). This post is funded by the EPSRC and is fixed-term up to 30 September 2019.


As part of a team developing novel technology and algorithms for objective diagnosis and follow up for patients with neurological conditions in home settings (Parkinson’s Disease, Sleep and Circadian Disorders), you will be responsible for developing automated sleep staging at home and automated detection of RBD. This work is undertaken as part of a collaboration with the neurology Department of the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.


You will have a PhD (or near completion) in a relevant computer science, engineering, maths or technology subject and will possess skills in sleep staging architectures, data fusion and end to end machine learning. Good knowledge of methods and algorithms for digital health, sleep or neurologic monitoring is essential and you will have experience of working in a highly interdisciplinary team. Experience working with data from RBD patients would be beneficial.


Informal enquiries may be addressed to Professor Maarten De Vos using the email address below.


You will be required to upload a covering letter/supporting statement, including a brief statement of research interests (describing how past experience and future plans fit with the advertised position), CV and the details of two referees as part of your online application.


Only applications received before 12.00 noon on Wednesday 12 December 2018 can be considered.


The Department holds an Athena Swan Bronze award, highlighting its commitment to promoting women in Science, Engineering and Technology.
