Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Harvard Medical School / Boston Children’s Hospital

Thursday 4th March 2021

Kiapour lab in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School has immediate opening for outstanding, highly motivated postdoctoral research fellows to work on developing computational tools to assist with clinical decision making in patients with a range of orthopedic problems. The postdoctoral fellow will work with a multidisciplinary team of biomedical engineers, orthopedic surgeons, clinical radiologists and computational radiologist to develop unbiased algorithms (i.e. deep learning) to analyze medical images (i.e. MRI and CT) and clinical outcomes. These fellowship opportunities are primarily focused on translational research with immediate impact on clinical care of patients with a range of musculoskeletal conditions, through publication of novel findings and development of computational tools used by clinicians. 

The postdoctoral fellow will have joint appointments at Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School and will benefit from access to the largest medical R&D community in the world (Longwood / Boston), along with numerous career development resources offered by Harvard University and its affiliated hospitals and research centers. 

The successful candidate will have received a PhD or MD/PhD in Computer Science, Biomedical Engineering or related fields with strong background in computer vision, at least one first author publication, and excellent communication skills in English. Prior research experience with medical data (i.e. imaging) and NLP are preferred. Considering the translational nature of our work, prior relevant industry experience (i.e. internship) is highly desirable. This is a full-time one-year appointment with potential second year extension based on applicant’s performance. 

Interested applicants, please send your CV along with a copy of a technical paper, a "paragraph" including statement of goals and contact information for three references to:
