The University of Surrey is an international University with a world-class research profile and an enterprising spirit. Inventive and forward-thinking, our heritage shows a recurring theme of doing things differently – and achieving notable results. Including climbing to 4th place in the Guardian University Guide for 2016 and moving up to 8th place in the Complete University Guide 2016.

In the latest UK research excellence framework (REF 2014) we were rated one of the top eight UK institutions for biosciences, health sciences, psychology and veterinary research. 

We are now seeking an enthusiastic Research Officer (Computational Biology) to work within a diverse research team at the Department of Veterinary Preclinical Sc, School of Veterinary Medicine, University of Surrey, Liverpool Cardiovascular Centre and Tianjin Medical School. The successful applicant will join an interdisciplinary team at Surrey and will be primarily engaged in a project aiming to develop computational algorithms for the prediction of cardiac rhythm abnormalities.  Expertise in machine learning and coding is essential in addition to a thorough understanding of large scale data processing using computational approaches. A proven track record in these areas is essential with previous publication track record in biological signal processing desirable. A major component of this post will thus involve data collection, analysis, interpretation and manuscript preparation. The successful candidate will also be expected to prepare periodic reports for the funding body and be directly involved in grant administration. The candidate will be responsible for managing their own time within the context of their role, the requirements and objectives associated with their position. There will be a need to undertake task that may not be directly related to the project but where the candidate’s expertise may be useful.

Candidates should hold a PhD in a related discipline. The position is a 0.5 FTE fixed-term for 9 months in the first instance with potential for renewal for another 12 months subject to satisfactory performance. Applicants must be highly motivated, enthusiastic and engage in scholarly activities conducive to a long-term successful academic career that will support and enhance the research culture within the department and the school.
