Job Description

Are you a graduate with a PhD in Computer Science? Are you skilled in text analytics? Do you have experience in user modelling and machine learning? Do you want to work in Research & Development for a new and exciting company looking to build AI-based tools for the healthcare sector?

The University of Leeds has an excellent opportunity for you to ‘fast-track’ your career in industry by leading a high-profile, strategically important project from start to completion. Through a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP), you will work in partnership with Scaled Insights in conjunction with the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences at the University of Leeds to develop a leading-edge personalisation insights platform (PIP) using AI to help determine the use of behavioural interventions in the healthcare sector.

Scaled Insights is a forward-thinking and innovative company aiming to deliver more effective behavioural healthcare through new and exciting uses of AI. Scaled Insights has already developed and patented an AI tool that underpins the company’s strategic objectives and as a KTP Associate working with them you will be part of a bold and exciting vision to apply state-of-the-art AI methods to the already existing PIP product. The project will look to develop such methods so the product can be applied to different domains and Scaled Insights is able to expand and access new markets outside of the healthcare industry. 

Working with the University of Leeds you will have access to first class computer facilities where you will be able to conduct multi-stage experiments with cutting-edge equipment and insight from academics with vast experience in Computer Science.
