Purpose of the post

This is an exciting opportunity to take on a national leadership role to work with the BHF Data Science Centre on a part-time secondment basis. The Personal Monitoring Data Theme Lead will be a key member of the BHF Data Science Centre leadership team, taking on an Associate Director role. They will work closely with the Director, other Associate Directors and centre staff to identify and prioritise key areas of work in the use of personal monitoring data in cardiovascular research, demonstrating impact at national and international level. They will have an excellent understanding of, and expertise in, the use of personal monitoring data in health research and a strong commitment to developing linked healthcare data-enabled approaches to improve understanding, monitoring and management of cardiovascular disease.

This part-time role would provide leadership and strategic planning in the use of large-scale personal monitoring data for the cardiovascular research community, to meet the wider objectives of the BHF Data Science Centre in improving cardiovascular health, through the use of large-scale data and innovative analytical methods.

There will be overlap with the centre’s other thematic areas and collaborative working with other leads across these themes is expected.

This post would suit a health data scientist (either clinical or non-clinical) with experience of personal monitoring data for health research, who is an established leader or well advanced on a career pathway towards a leadership position within this field.
