In this position, you will have the opportunity to drive innovations for the Philips patient monitoring portfolio as part of a cross-functional research team. The work is application-oriented aiming at competitive measurement and clinical decision support solutions.
Your challenge will be to develop algorithms for health assessment aimed at in-hospital and remote patient monitoring applications. Core of this position is the task to translate measurements of biomedical signals captured by wearable sensors into clinically valid physiological metrics. The goal will be to create innovation that would allow clinical customers to care for patients remotely and improve workflows by enabling transitional care programs.

You are responsible for

  • Mastering machine learning techniques as well as novel data science and AI tools to produce mature algorithms for predicting vital signs, building early warning scoring systems and digital health biomarkers from wearable sensors.
  • Interacting with clinical experts to identify how a data driven solution could help addressing their needs to improve patient care.
  • Tailoring algorithms to specific clinical applications and workflows. 
  • Understanding the physiological processes related to biomedical signals to create innovative digital health metrics.
  • Being able to create and maintain technical assets to rapidly and continuously validate and improve algorithms.
  • Producing documentation to inform about the performance and capabilities of the developed algorithms to clinical and non-clinical customers.
