Department of Biomedical Informatics at Emory School of Medicine is searching for a postdoctoral scholar. The Laboratory is led by Dr. Imon Banerjee, who is also affiliated with the Departments of Radiology and Biomedical Informatics at Emory University. The lab focuses on cutting‐edge research at the intersection of imaging science and biomedical informatics, developing and applying AI methods to large amounts of medical data for biomedical discovery, precision medicine, and precision health (early detection and prediction of future disease).

The postdoctoral scholar will be working on two core research topics: (1) develop foundational AI methods for analyzing and extracting information from clinical texts; (2) develop clinical prediction models using multi-modal and longitudinal electronic medical records (EMR) data. The scholar will deploy and evaluate these methods as clinical applications to transform medical care.
