Job Description

The Clinical Informatics Service aims to develop informatics tools which enable SLaM staff to use clinical data to inform their decision making at individual patient and service levels to improve the quality and equity of the care delivered. Tools including interactive visualisation will feedback data to clinicians in ways that maximise their ability to quickly extract relevant insights and interact with the data. Our work will be directed by the questions identified as important by clinicians and our tools developed iteratively with the teams who will be using them in their routine practice, translating the unique data resources and clinical informatics research and expertise within the BRC to build a learning health system that solves practical problems within the trust.

A project to assess the potential to utilise informatics services established and developed through the BRC CRIS services for direct clinical purposes was initiated in 2019 and has resulted in the development of a proof of concept tool - VIEWER.

The Clinical Informatics Service has recently been awarded funding to develop this further and to transition the proof of concept tools into a fully operational service within SLaM.

As part of this project we are seeking to recruit an evaluation lead to:

  • Work with the team to develop the Evaluation Strategy to improve service effectiveness and enable appropriate learning.

  • Provide regular reports on progress to project leads and steering committee.

  • Develop specific evaluation plans for the development and deployment of specific use cases into clinical teams.

  • Design, collect, analyse and summarise mixed methods (qualitative and quantitative) data in order to evaluate the impact of the Clinical Informatics Service and its outputs on staff, patients and the wider Trust as a whole.

  • Ensure evaluation findings are reflected back into the service, including recommendations for improvement.

  • Manage interaction with the project stakeholders, including requirements and logistical support.

  • Lead on the writing of evaluation reports for dissemination to funders and partners, and academic papers describing the evaluation process and findings. 


  • Undergraduate degree in biological, psychological or social sciences

  • Masters-level qualification including research component


  • Knowledge and experience of designing, collecting and analysing both quantitative and qualitative data.

  • High quality writing skills through project reports and/or peer-reviewed publications at conferences or in journal articles.

  • Knowledge of health and care systems to understand the context in which insights will be required to facilitate the adoption of Clinical Informatics service tools within clinical services.

  • Experience working with clinical professionals and teams in role involving piloting of interventions and/or collection of data.

  • Experience facilitating and managing stakeholder input into project design and implementation.


Research Assistant – sample size investigation for clinical texts classification using NLP

A team in BHI is looking for a motivated research assistant to work on a project investigating optimal sample size for Natural Language Processing (NLP) classification tasks that require manual annotations. The tasks involve:

·       running simulations using deep learning models to investigate model performances in various language settings and training corpora sizes;

·       developing a GitHub project page and a well-documented code;

·       participating in dissemination activities (e.g. preparing and participating in an interactive online seminar).

A successful candidate can start as soon as possible and work till the end of July, in a collaboration with myself, Angus Roberts, Jaya Chaturvedi, and Daniel Stahl. The hours (14h/week) can be worked as two full days or spread over the week, remotely or in the office (Denmark Hill). Please write to to express your interest.

Project Description: Natural Language Processing methods are widely applied to extract information from clinical texts and present it in a structured way. However, unlike in statistical data analyses, there are no methods available for estimating the sample size needed. Our project aims to assess optimal sample size for the development of clinical NLP models and how these requirements change depending on the documents and language properties. By taking a simulation approach and following modern guidance on model validation, we will be able to investigate model performances in various scenarios and provide guidance on sample sizes for clinical NLP tasks.


The role is suitable for a current MSc/PhD student/postdoc/early career researcher in Computer science, Engineering, Health Informatics, Statistics, or a related field.


·       Strong analytical skills;

·       Knowledge of Python programming language;

·       Understanding model validation techniques such as cross-validation and evaluation metrics such as AUC-ROC/sensitivity/specificity/precision, 

·       Ability to work independently and in a team.
