Applications are invited for a Temporary Fixed Term until 19 September 2022 post of a UCD Post-doctoral Research Fellow Level 2 within UCD School of Biomolecular and Biomedical Science
Preeclampsia (PET) is a condition of pregnancy that is difficult to diagnose and kills 50,000 mothers and 500,000 babies globally every year. AI PREMie is a risk stratification tool which identifies women with PET - and how the condition will progress. Our AI PREMie tool assesses the PET risk based on circulating biomarkers in the plasma of pregnant mothers. This will give clinicians and other caregivers the opportunity to proactively plan pregnancies for at risk mothers, giving a clearer understanding if planning for delivery is necessary or if the baby can stay in utero allowing for further development as every day in utero counts.
The successful candidate for this role will work on the development of a bespoke predictive algorithm for preeclampsia, based on clinical, laboratory and demographic data from approximately 400 patients. In addition, they will work with multi-disciplinary teams made up of Clinicians, Research nurses, scientists and statisticians to build a compelling case for use of this algorithm in clinical practice.
This is an advanced research focused role, building on your prior experience as a post-doctoral fellow, where you will conduct a specified programme of research supported by research training under the supervision and direction of a Principal Investigator.
The primary purpose of the role is to develop new or advanced research skills and competences, on the processes of publication in peer-reviewed academic publications and scholarly dissemination, the development of funding proposals, and the supervision and mentorship of graduate students along with the opportunity to develop your skills in research led teaching.
