This is a maternity cover for a senior role in a large and growing team comprising of staff working in the TIG (the Translational Imaging Group, cmictig.cs.ucl.ac.uk) and, jointly under the leadership of Professor Sebastien Ourselin, staff working in HealthEng (Institute of Healthcare Engineering http://healthcare-eng.ucl.ac.uk ). The unit has affiliation with the Department of Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering through the Centre for Medical Image Computing (CMIC) and directly to the Faculty of Engineering through HealthEng.
TIG has attracted multi-million pound research funding and collaborates with Faculties within UCL, the NHS, charitable trusts and foundations, international Universities and industry. This role will work most closely with the Director, academic and research staff conducting this funded research and delivering outcomes that have real-world, life-improving impacts.
HealthEng aims to provide increased prestige as well as other gains through large scale, high profile healthcare engineering projects (HealthEng Flagships) to generate patient benefits and measurable impact. The vision for HealthEng is to become one of the world leaders into the clinical translation of healthcare engineering technology. Focussed primarily on supporting funded, active projects in the TIG but also providing support to Flagship projects as required, this role will provide strategically informed project management support, working closely with within and across teams responsible for research, translation, healthcare and industry both internal and external to UCL.
Note: the ‘hub and spoke’ model of translational biomedical engineering activities may require this postholder to work at and visit multiple sites within the M25 area.
