IBM Research is undertaking a project to develop predictive models of
neurological and psychiatric disease transitions based on patients’ speech
samples and physiological recordings from wearable devices such as
accelerometers, heart rate monitors and portable ElectroEncephaloGram (EEG)
recorders. The goal of the project is to implement a high sampling
frequency system monitoring easily available behavioral and physiological
data, and relate these to established psychometric measures of disease, in
order to provide neurologist and psychiatrists with high granularity
information of the patients’ state, and actionable predictions of imminent
transitions. The project will involve a tight collaboration with clinician
s.

 IBM Research is undertaking a project to characterize the progression of neurological diseases using multi-modal imaging techniques, combining       
 state-of-the-art statistical learning and high-performance computing tools with physiological models and mechanistic interpretations. The ultimate   
 goal of this project is to develop an integrative, multi-disciplinary approach to understand underpinning biological mechanisms of disease (e.g.     
 Parkinson’s), as well as provide analytic tools with immediate clinical applicability. The project will involve a tight collaboration with           
 neurobiology researchers and clinicians.                                                                                                             
                                                                                                                                                      
 IBM is seeking a Postdoctoral Researcher with a degree in neuroimaging, neuroscience, computer science, mathematics, physics, electrical engineering 
 or similar fields. Candidates should have experience in high-throughput brain data modeling, machine learning for big data, computational            
 neuroscience and neurobiology. Candidates with a background in relevant applied mathematics fields such as topological data analysis and             
 optimization will also be considered.
