The Department of Biomedical Data Science (BMDS) and the Center for Precision Health & Artificial Intelligence (CPHAI) at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth invite applications for a tenure-track appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor. This role represents a targeted collaboration to further Dartmouth's innovative efforts in precision health through artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning applications.
BMDS offers a dynamic and interactive environment with a commitment to research excellence. BMDS faculty members benefit from highly collaborative and collegial interactions across campus, including departments at Geisel School of Medicine, Dartmouth’s College of Arts and Sciences, Thayer School of Engineering, Tuck School of Business, Dartmouth Cancer Center, and Dartmouth Health's clinical departments. CPHAI is a new initiative that will foster novel, interdisciplinary AI and machine learning research, advancing public health and healthcare delivery, and positioning Dartmouth as a global leader in precision health. As an Ivy League research university and the birthplace of AI, Dartmouth is a leading teaching and research institution in the United States, dedicated to finding solutions to the world's most challenging problems and preparing students for leadership roles. The Center for Precision Health & Artificial Intelligence is at the forefront of this commitment, fostering novel, interdisciplinary AI and machine learning research to harness biomedical data, advancing public health and healthcare delivery.
Successful applicants will develop vigorous and innovative research programs focused on biomedical informatics, machine learning in healthcare, personalized medicine, learning healthcare systems, medical image analysis, clinical natural language processing, or multimodal healthcare data analytics, with the goal of having a practical impact on healthcare delivery and patient outcomes. Expertise in interpretable machine learning, ethical and equitable use of AI, and algorithmic bias mitigation is strongly encouraged. A generous start-up package, as well as access to state-of-the-art research facilities, will be provided. Individuals will be given opportunities for mentorship and teaching in relevant PhD and MS graduate programs (e.g., Program in Quantitative Biomedical Sciences). Opportunities for innovative research methods development and application are facilitated through Dartmouth’s high-performance computing resources (e.g., Discovery), access to Dartmouth’s Shared Resources, and interactions with existing NIH Centers for Biomedical Research Excellence (COBREs) at Dartmouth. Successful individuals will be provided a tenure-track faculty appointment in the Department of Biomedical Data Science at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth College. Secondary appointments in other departments at Dartmouth College and Dartmouth Health may be available depending on expertise and experience.
