Responsibilities include establishing and maintaining an independent research program in methodological and collaborative research focused on healthcare analytics. Duties will specifically include grant development, execution and project management as a project investigator; creation of innovative analytic approaches for improving healthcare; management of professional research staff in a research environment; and establishing and working collaboratively in multidisciplinary teams. The selected faculty member will also actively participate in the Department of Biomedical Informatics graduate and medical training programs, including instruction of PhD students in predictive analytics, data summarization, human-computer interactions, user-centered design, and/or natural language understanding.
Minimum Qualifications: MD and/or Ph.D. in biomedical informatics, information science, or a related field prior to effective date of appointment.
