CogStack Programme Manager Vacancy

25 August 2021

An exciting new job opportunity working with NHSX at KCL

KCL are seeking a Programme Manager to join the CogStack programme. CogStack is a home-grown open-source platform developed in the NHS that uses artificial intelligence to reveal important data locked in patient’s health records.

The programme was recently awarded prestigious funding from The Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Health and Care Award to test the use of Natural Language Processing AI in the clinical coding workflow, and to disseminate CogStack across the NHS (https://www.kcl.ac.uk/news/cogstack-wins-an-artificial-intelligence-in-h...). The AI award is one of the NHS AI Lab programmes, led by NHSX.

This is an exciting time to join the programme which is a highly collaborative, cross-institutional consortium that pools expertise from across the healthcare ecosystem in AI, data science, research, and clinical practice. The NHS consortium consists of King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, Guys & St Thomas NHS Foundation Trust, South London and The Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, University College London Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and University Hospital Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust. University partners are King’s College London, University College London and University of Birmingham.

This is a new role that will work closely with and report to leads, Professor Richard Dobson and Dr James Teo. It will involve overseeing the grant: managing the budget, reporting to the funder on progress, supporting the programme leads in overseeing governance boards and ensuring delivery of the programme deliverables.

This role will require an ability to work collaboratively across a consortium of partners, and will provide the opportunity for external liaison, with interfaces to UK government, academia, industry and the clinical community. This is a fast-paced programme and we are looking for someone who can bring their research administration experience to a supportive cross-organisational team.

Someone who is highly motivated, organised, and proactive with experience in research and financial administration, would be ideal – specific experience or interest in health data research and/or AI would be a real advantage.
