Postdoctoral Researcher – AI for Health at the Donders Centre for Cognition

The Faculty of Social Sciences, Radboud University is seeking a highly motivated and skilled Postdoctoral Researcher – AI for Health at the Donders Centre for Cognition.

As postdoctoral researchers, they will contribute to the development of a theoretically sound and computationally scalable framework for understanding and predicting the evolution of longitudinal data (i.e. nowcasting, prognosis, anomaly detection) in the health domain. This is an exciting opportunity to contribute to cutting-edge research within the Healthy Data programme, focused on advancing AI techniques and their application to improve health and healthcare in society.

They will take on key roles in coordinating the project and collaborating closely with the research team, PhD candidates, and staff members. Their research efforts will also involve the exploration and development of other techniques, such as distributed control, fractional-order control, and regression discontinuity methods. Overall, their work will contribute to the advancement of prediction and control methodologies and their application in the health domain, to make a significant impact in the field.


Their responsibilities will include

  • co-supervising PhD candidates, providing guidance and support in their research activities.
  • work in collaboration with an ICT developer to adapt and optimize methods for health data applications.
  • developing and implementing techniques for the prediction and control of complex stochastic processes, with an emphasis on nowcasting, prognosis, anomaly detection, and understanding the impact of control policies.
  • In addition, they will test and validate these methods using publicly available datasets and collaborate with partners in the Healthy Data programme to apply these methods to health data collected within the programme.
