The Department of Neurology at the UKSH Kiel is a highly dynamic research environment that is nationally and internationally competitive in neurological research, in particular Parkinson’s disease. Excellent career opportunities, collaborative team play with partners in academic and industry research, and both technology/innovation-driven as well as patient-centered research make the Dept. of Neurology a unique working place.
The PhD project focusses on data analysis identifying sensor-based movement signatures at homes of patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD). How can sensors provide (personalized) measures of PD severity? In what respect do these sensor-based movement signatures change under treatment?
We are looking for professional and competent support to start as early as possible.
You will perform statistical analyses and apply machine learning to home-based movement sensor data of patients with Parkinson’s disease.
You will find associations of the sensor data with clinical symptoms characteristics in PD and changes in sensor signatures after clinical intervention.
You should preferentially have a M.Sc. degree in mathematics/statistics, physics, engineering, epidemiology, psychology or similar.
You should have a deep motivation to work with patient data and advance PD research at its frontier.
You should have experience in programming and statistics in R and should be interested in applying machine learning approaches.
What we offer:
A PhD project that is internationally competitive and at the frontier of PD research
You will be embedded into multidisciplinary teams at the Dept. of Neurology, UKSH Kiel (Working groups: Integrative data analytics, Neurogeriatrics)
You will have an excellent and comprehensive supervision along your way to the PhD.
You will be in exchange and learn from experienced data analysts (of our working groups and our collaboration partners in the pharmaceutical industry).
65% TV-L E13 salary (3 year contract); the preferred starting date is as soon as possible.
The UKSH has been certified as a family-friendly institution and is committed to further improve the compatibility of work and family life. The University Medical Center Schleswig-Holstein is an equal opportunity employer. People with disabilities will be given preference in case of equal qualifications.
