8114| University of Bath, Computer Science| Research Associate in Visual Computing and Machine Learning| We are looking for highly motivated individual to work on an exciting new collaboration using visual computing and machine learning in the context of digital healthcare. The 'RA Flare Profiler' is an Innovate UK funded project between the University of Bath, Royal United Hospitals Foundation Trust and Living With Ltd to provide transformational new capability to Living With’s existing 'Living With Rheumatoid Arthritis' (LWRA) product. Utilising Machine Learning technologies, the proposed flare profiler will provide a very granular view of a patient's RA profile, based largely on data collected from the patient from the convenience of their own home and comparing it to a wider patient population, significantly reducing the need for hospital-based specialist tests.Flare frequency, duration and severity are key indicators of disease progression in Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA). While undergoing a flare, patients are exposed to systemic inflammation that can be permanently damaging. Current clinical management of RA is based on either pre-scheduled appointments (e.g. at 6, 12 or 18 month intervals) or emergency clinics, with data collection based around these interactions. There is no regular mapping of fluctuations in disease severity, with the unpredictability of acute flare-ups being a key feature of the disease despite as many as 78% of patients recalling flares monthly or more regularly. As such, it remains very difficult to make informed treatment plans, because of the unpredictability of the disease and patients' fluctuating symptoms.The Rheumatoid Arthritis Flare Profiler will allow every Rheumatoid Arthritis patient to receive a more intelligent and personalised treatment plan, based on the early and continuous reporting of their flare up data and its comparison against the aggregated RA profiler model. This will reduce some of the costs associated with an unexpected deterioration in health and wellbeing. It will do this by combining new and existing mobile phone based methods of capturing individual disease activity with advanced artificial intelligence technology to provide a profiling model that can inform treatment planning.You will join the Centre for the Analysis of Motion, Entertainment Research and Applications (CAMERA) is a thriving EPSRC funded research centre based at the University of Bath (Departments of Computer Science and Health). The aim is to create research impact in the areas of Entertainment, Human Performance Enhancement (e.g. Sport and Training) and Assistive Technologies (e.g. Health). CAMERA has several existing world-class partners across Entertainment, Sport and Health, including: The Imaginarium, The Foundy, The Ministry of Defence (MoD), British Maritime Technologies (BMT) and British Skeleton.This is a fixed-term position with an expected duration of up to 15 months.For an informal discussion about the role, please contact Professor Darren Cosker ([email protected]) or Matthew Young ([email protected]).We are working to improve the gender balance within the department’s population and particularly welcome applications from women.Closing date: Sunday 28 October 2018 Interview date: To be confirmed

8130| University of Calgary, Faculty of Environmental Design and Cumming School of Medicine| 2-Year Post-Doctoral Fellowship –Geospatial Analysis of Human Radon Gas Exposure in Relation to Environmental Design Metrics| Context: Our goal is to understand the geospatially distinct environmental design contributors of radiation exposure from radon gas as a source of lung cancer, and develop solutions to protect the population. Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in North America and is overwhelmingly caused by chronic inhalation of tobacco smoke and/or radioactive radon gas. Radon is the primary cause of lung cancer in never smokers, encompassing 10,000-40,000 Canadians per decade. Canada contains many radon-generating regions, and Canadians have constructed population centres across all of them, although this does not mean that all buildings contain high radon. Indeed, there are three factors needed to incur hazardous radon exposure: (i) a geologic source and pathway (upwards) for radon, (ii) environmental design metrics that actively draw up and concentrate radon and (iii) human behaviour that prolongs exposure or increases radon concentrations. The postdoctoral scholar will aim to identify modifiable behaviours and environmental design practices influencing chronic radon exposure in our changing world and define engineering and community intervention solutions applicable within the Canadian context to eliminate radon as a source of cancer in the future. The mentorship team encompasses leading expertise in radon and cancer biology (Goodarzi) merged with architecture and environmental design (Taron). Qualifications: The ideal candidate will be a scholar with a PhD (within 3 years of completing PhD; ABD will be considered) in geography, architecture, urban studies, public heath, energy efficiency or a related field, who will maintain a high degree of research productivity and extend existing capacities of the growing Evict Radon research confederation of scholars. They will demonstrate a high degree of self-direction and creativity, and will ideally be familiar with the Canadian funding landscape. This position is initially for two years, with the possibility of renewal pending successful funding applications.Application closing date: November 14th, 2018Position start date: early 2019Salary: $55 000 per year plus benefits To apply, Please send your CV, a cover letter outlining broad research interests and contributions, and a one-page research proposal pertaining to the themes above, to [email protected] and [email protected] by end of November 14th, 2019.

These "unnatural" flood deposits are ubiquitous, delay emergency response, and are costly to clean up. We aim to predict how spatial characteristics of built environments control the shape, scale, movement, and distribution of flood deposits. We will measure and model flood deposits in built and non-built environments to quantify and explain their differences. This project is a formative step in transdisciplinary research into how natural phenomena interact with and impact built environments.We seek a talented, quantitative, scientist who has facility and experience with numerical modelling and writing open-source code. Candidates should have a PhD* or equivalent professional qualifications and experience in a relevant subject area. A background in physical geography is preferred, but not essential: candidates with a background in cognate disciplines (e.g., physics, fluid dynamics, coastal/fluvial engineering, computer science) are encouraged to apply.The post will involve numerical modelling and data analysis, and participation in a large-scale physical experiment at the COAST Lab, a state-of-the-art facility at the University of Plymouth.
