CHIMERA is a multidisciplinary Hub that focuses on understanding how to best support clinical teams in ICU in deciding how to support patients needing assisted ventilation (assisted breathing), typically using ventilators, and when to extubate. CHIMERA brings together experts in mathematics, statistics, data science and machine learning, with unique, high volume and rich data sets from both adult and paediatric Intensive Care Units provided through embedded Project Partnerships with Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) and University College London Hospital (UCLH). CHIMERA will deliver new mathematical frameworks combining artificial intelligence and mechanistic models (differential equations) to learn the biophysical relationships that govern the interdependencies -during normal and assisted respiration- between physiological variables, based on data sets for thousands of patients through these project partners. The post is available for two years in the first instance. Key Requirements Successful candidate will need to hold a PhD in Engineering, mathematics or closely related discipline. Applicants should demonstrate a publication record appropriate to their level of experience. The candidate should possess outstanding skills and experience in mathematical and/or computational modelling of physiological systems.
