Best, Colin (cbannard at liverpool.ac.uk<mailto:cbannard at liverpool.ac.uk>)


A Research Assistant/Associate/Data Scientist is sought to join an inter-disciplinary research project examining the use of typing as a diagnostic tool for neurological disorders, particularly Parkinson's Disease.

We are looking for someone to oversee participant recruitment and collation of data (conducted remotely via a website and apps which are being separately created) and to perform statistical modelling of typing behaviour (methods employed could range from hierarchical regression modelling to deep learning, depending on expertise or taste). Applications from candidates interested in only one of these components will be considered in which case they would be employed as 0.5 FTE. Telecommuting is possible by arrangement with the project lead.
