Text: The Institute of Computational Biology is a globally recognized department for innovations in data analysis and modeling of biological systems, anchored at the Helmholtz Zentrum Munich and the Technical University Munich. The "Machine Learning for Optimization of Patient Treatments" group at the Helmholtz Center Munich (HMGU) is seeking to hire multiple talented and motivated individuals at the Postdoc- or PhD Student-level to join our team to develop new data analytics for the optimization of patient pathways, using big data analysis methods on electronic medical records (EMR). We are looking for a Postdoctoral Fellowship or PhD Student Position (m/f/diverse) in Machine Learning for Patient Data Analysis 2018/0560 Job Description This project is a joint collaboration between the Johns Hopkins University (JHU; Baltimore MD, USA) and the HMGU (Munich, Germany). The primary location for our team is at the HMGU Munich center. Our team members will have opportunity to visit and work with faculties and researchers at the Johns Hopkins University and Hospital. Our HMGU-funded project currently has access to 10 years of comprehensive EMR data of patients who underwent cardiac surgery at the Johns Hopkins Hospital (Baltimore MD, USA). Furthermore, we work with other national-level databases within the scope of this project. Our goal is to model, predict, and find causal factors related to the outcomes of interest, such as length of stay, prolonged intubation, blood transfusion, and renal failure. In addition to project-specific work, you will have the opportunity to mentor students at the graduate and undergraduate level, and may initiate and pursue research on supplemental ideas in collaboration with faculty aligned with their interests.
