The research projects:
You will join our AI for cardiology team as part of ongoing projects such as LongITools ( and DataTools4Heart (, funded by the European Commission. In these projects, we are developing new trustworthy AI methodsfor predictive modelling of heart disease from multi-source biomedical data (includingclinical, biological, imaging and environmental data). In particular, we are interested in newAI models which,
once applied in real-world practice, will be fair across population groups,generalisable across clinical sites, robust against data variations, explainable for clinical use,and respectful of data privacy. Hence, we are investigating a wide range of approaches,including transfer learning, bias correction, domain adaptation, generative modelling,uncertainty estimation, explainable AI and federated learning. Should you join our team,you will collaborate with several technical and clinical partners within and outside Europe(e.g. in the Netherlands, the UK, Greece, Finland, Czech Republic, Turkey, Peru, Tanzania).
