Working with academic experts from the Advanced Data Analysis Centre, part of the Digital Research Service at UoN, you will develop and embed algorithms which drive the artificial intelligence risk calculators to enable Intellin® to predict an individual's risk and give specific information to enable users to make informed decisions on how to manage their condition and reduce risk of complications.

You should have an understanding of clinical code systems. Previous experience in a similar/related role within an industrial or research environment is desirable. 

As a people-orientated individual, you will have the ability to build relationships, influence and engage collaboratively between the teams at Gendius, UoN and with stakeholders.  As a proactive person, you will have the passion and desire for creating something new, be enthusiastic and motivated to organise your time effectively and a flexible approach to prioritising work tasks. 

Through the KTP you will be fully supported and mentored to nurture your talent. You will have your own budget (£2,000pa) for training and CPD helping you develop your skillset and reach your personal and professional career goals. 

UoN is committed to providing competitive employment packages whilst supporting the well-being of staff to help them reach their full potential.
