Hiring Organization: CHIP- Computational Health Informatics Program, Boston Children's Hospital


Establish your independent research program at Harvard and Boston Children’s Hospital.

CHIP, the Computational Health Informatics Program at Boston Children’s Hospital http://chip.org, an affiliate of Harvard Medical School and closely aligned with the new Department of Biomedical Informatics, is recruiting research faculty at junior and senior levels to join us in transforming care delivery and biomedical science.

We seek outstanding candidates passionate about advancing the ability to acquire and then reason over an entire spectrum of data types ranging from molecular and genomic all the way to clinical, epidemiological, environmental and social. Focus areas may include, but are not limited to genomic medicine, re-imagined clinical trials, real-world evidence, visualization of big data, medical applications of machine learning including clinical decision support and predictive medicine.

CHIP, founded in 1994, is a multidisciplinary applied research and education program. Biomedical informatics has become a major theme and methodology for biomedical science, health care delivery, and population health, involving high-dimensional modeling and understanding of patients from the molecular to the population levels. We design information infrastructure for medical decision making, diagnosis, care redesign, public health management, and re-imagined clinical trials.

The field is inherently interdisciplinary, drawing on traditional biomedical disciplines, the science and technology of computing, data science, biostatistics, epidemiology, decision theory, omics, implementation science, and health care policy and management. Our faculty are trained in medicine, data science, computer science, mathematics and epidemiology. Though CHIP has a robust pediatric research agenda, our interests span across all ages.

For the work of CHIP, Health 2.0 recently voted Boston Children’s Hospital the 10 Year Global Retrospective Top Influencer among all health care organizations.

Candidates at the Instructor or Assistant Professor level should have strong quantitative backgrounds and a history of innovative approaches to biomedical scientific inquiry or the translation of computational methods to engineering or software applications in medicine. Candidates at the Associate Professor level must additionally demonstrate scientific leadership and the ability to develop sustainable, impactful projects.

All qualified applicants must have a doctoral degree (MD, PhD, MD/PhD, or equivalent) and a strong record of publishing. Faculty are expected to teach, be exceptional mentors and have or achieve substantial independent funding.

Boston Children’s Hospital is an equal opportunity employer that strongly encourages women and underrepresented minorities candidates apply for positions at our institution.

Interested applicants should submit a CV, cover letter, research plan, and three references to Kenneth D. Mandl, MD, MPH, CHIP Director, by emailing them to Megan Rollins megan.rollins@childrens.harvard.edu by February 15, 2017.
