Job Reference: 259-3020259COR

Barts Health NHS Trust
Informatics Project
TBC, London
£43,712 - £49,325 per annum inc

Barts Health is one of the largest NHS trusts in the country, and one of Britain’s leading healthcare providers.

The Barts Health group of NHS hospitals is entering an exciting new era on our improvement journey to becoming an outstanding organisation with a world-class clinical reputation. Having lifted ourselves out of special measures, we now have the impetus and breathing space to chart a fresh course in which we are continually striving to improve all our services for patients.

Our vision is to be a high-performing group of NHS hospitals, renowned for excellence and innovation, and providing safe and compassionate care to our patients in east London and beyond. That means being a provider of excellent patient safety, known for delivering consistently high standards of harm-free care and always caring for patients in the right place at the right time. It also means being an outstanding place to work, in which our WeCare values and behaviours are visible to all and guide us in how we work together.

CAP-AI digital fellows Band 7

This is an exciting opportunity for a talented early career data / computational scientist with an interest in medical applications or a clinician with an interest in artificial intelligence (AI) to work on projects and applications that will be using machine learning as the primary means of delivering innovative health care products and services.

Use of machine learning and AI is at the forefront of ground-breaking advances in healthcare. There is a wealth of healthcare data and medical knowledge available and as such, significant opportunities to develop new systems and methods to help to deliver best practice of the future, big data breakthroughs in genomics, predictive analytics, population health management, and clinical decision support to name but a few.

Barts Life Sciences, a partnership between Barts Health NHS Trust and Queen Mary University of London, has received funding from the European Regional Development Fund and Barts Charity and is working with lead Capital Enterprise and partner Digital Catapult to help deliver the CAP-AI project. We are recruiting for digital fellows to work on a number of interesting projects spanning a wide range of healthcare services to help improve patient care.

AI and machine learning small and medium enterprises (SMEs) have the ability to scale very quickly but there is a lack of support in place to help them to do so. Capital Enterprise will work alongside Barts Life Sciences and Digital Catapult to provide SMEs with access to finance, high quality data and high performing computational power and technical expertise and talent. The fellows will be able to gain access to a variety of resources through these connections as well as access some of the most interesting data in healthcare from London’s largest NHS Trust.

Barts Life Sciences is a leader in global firsts and ground-breaking trials and have over 32,000 patients actively involved in research programmes. We have an army of clinicians eager to find new drugs, treatments and therapies to spearhead the coming revolution in personalised medicine.

We have ongoing collaborations with global Med Tech, pharmaceutical and early-stage companies to improve clinical pathways and reduce costs. In 2017/18, Barts Health topped the table for supporting the most life sciences studies.

Barts Life Sciences aims to facilitate access to all these resources and support the invention, adoption and diffusion of medical innovation.
