The PhD and Post-doc project focus 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?
•Innovation - You use your statistical/data-analytical/critical thinking and creative and innovative
ideas to find answers to clinical questions in Parkinson’s disease based on complex data.
•Data Analysis - Process and analyze large structured and unstructured data, identify patterns
and applying data mining, predictive analytics and machine learning techniques. In addition,
you identify and evaluate unknown relationships in data in order to gain clinical -relevant
insights and are responsible for conducting explorative data analyses in complex data
•Algorithms - You intuitively understand the use and logic behind algorithms and can make them
more personal, and relevant. You create reusable analytical models and operationalize them.
•Further development - You select suitable visualization and analysis tools and actively further
develop our Big Data & Analytics landscape.
•Exciting insights - tinkering with exciting questions that will enable you to further expand your
know-how and implement them together with our project teams.
•Strong academic background and M.Sc in MINT subjects (mathematics, computer science,
natural sciences, technology) or a related field with experience in machine learning and
(advanced) statistics and data analysis
•You are proficient in handling large amounts of data using various tools – all programming
languages welcome, especially R & Python
•Familiarity and understanding of state-of-the-art machine learning methods, model selection
and deep learning concepts and strong willingness to further develop expertise in these areas
•Experience with mechanistic modelling is a plus
•Combining strong theoretical and analytical skills with programming experience
•Excellent written and verbal communication skills in English (German B2) in an interdisciplinary
What we offer:
•A PhD/Post-doc 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.
•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) or a 100% Post-doc position (2 years); the preferred
starting date is as soon as possible.
