Teledermatology is fast becoming the norm. The Tanaka group at Imperial College London has developed a new deep-learning pipeline called EczemaNet (Pan, Hurault et al. 2020) that can perform eczema severity assessment fully automatically and in a reliable and interoperable fashion. Eczema is a chronic inflammatory skin condition that affects millions of people worldwide. Eczema severity assessment is critical for deciding which treatments are needed and if specialist referral is required. However, judging eczema severity on 2D images can be challenging, subjective, and prone to inter- and intra-observer variation. EczemaNet has been developed to address these challenges.

We are excited to offer an opportunity for a research assistant/associate to join our dynamic team to develop the user-interface for EczemaNet. This role is programming and data-science intensive. The main responsibilities of this post will include design, development, and maintenance of both the front-end and back-end of the EczemaNet user-interface that will be used by clinicians, nurses, and general public. The research assistant/associate will plan, lead, and carry out a high-quality implementation of the AI tool to develop a regulatory-compliant medical device.
We look for highly motivated applicants with excellent interpersonal and technical skills, enthusiasm for development of quality user-interface for clinical use, and great attentions to details.
