Position: Research Assistant in Human-Computer Interaction and Visualizing Health Data
Institution: University College London
Department: UCL Department of Computer Science
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: The position will involve analysing a large dataset and designing new visualisation interventions that can be tested in Great Ormond Street Hospital’s new Living Lab. The aim of the project is to enable clinicans to ask meaningful questions of data they have access to, develop new knowledge and deeper understanding, supported by appropriate data analytic methods and intuitive data visualisations. Inspired by theories of question types, our first objective is to determine how to support the transformation of data and information into knowledge, based upon which decisions can be taken
Requirements: An undergraduate or Master’s degree in Computer Science, or HCI is essential for this role. Candidates must have knowledge of research techniques, coding and data analysis/visualisation
   
Text: Research Assistant in Human-Computer Interaction and Visualizing Health Data, - Ref:1746376 Click here to go back to search results Apply Now UCL Department / Division UCL Department of Computer Science Specific unit / Sub department UCL Interaction Centre (UCLIC) Location of position London Grade 6 Hours Full Time Salary (inclusive of London allowance) ?30,922 - ?32,607 per annum Duties and Responsibilities We are looking for a temporary research assistant for 4 months to join Professor Yvonne Rogers (UCLIC), Professor Licia Capra (Computer Science) and Professor Neil Sebire (Great Ormond Street Hospital) to analyse and visualize hospital lab data to make it open, usable and useful. What used to be paper-based or ephemeral is increasingly becoming digitized (e.g. blood data). The project will explore the design of a novel interface for clinicians in the form of ?active intelligent? pathology results presentation to enable them to understand and abstract from patient data differently and be able to ask new kinds of questions from it, leading to new insights. The post will start in mid September 2018. Many of the commercial data analytic tools available are aimed at analytics experts. Typically, they have a steep learning curve, making it difficult for anyone else wanting to use them. This limits the extent and kinds of people who are able to use them to good effect. The aim of this exploratory project is to bridge the accessibility gap by developing a new set of interactive prototypes that will literally open up the closed world of data analytics to clinicians so as to empower them. The position will involve analysing a large dataset and designing new visualisation interventions that can be tested in Great Ormond Street Hospital?s new Living Lab. The aim of the project is to enable clinicans to ask meaningful questions of data they have access to, develop new knowledge and deeper understanding, supported by appropriate data analytic methods and intuitive data visualisations. Inspired by theories of question types, our first objective is to determine how to support the transformation of data and information into knowledge, based upon which decisions can be taken. The second objective is to develop user-centered tools that transform key analytics methods, such as correlation and regression, into concepts and abstractions that clinicans can intuitively grasp. The final objective is to design and combine easy-to-understand representations of the outputs of the analyses performed on the data that can enable clinicans and researchers to derive new ways of thinking about how they can use and question the data. This is a fixed-term post for 4 months. Key Requirements An undergraduate or Master?s degree in Computer Science, or HCI is essential for this role. Candidates must have knowledge of research techniques, coding and data analysis/visualisation. Further Details A job description and person specification can be accessed at the bottom of this page.
