The Health Natural Language Processing Lab at Boston Children’s Hospital is seeking a post-doctoral research fellow to contribute to cutting edge research in the field of health natural language processing. This project will develop deep neural network methods for representing and summarizing the text in electronic health records, with high impact clinical applications.
The diversity of subject matter will require a creative candidate with the passion and diligence to solve challenging problems in an interdisciplinary environment. The Research Fellow will be expected to lead publications and will receive enthusiastic mentorship with the goal of preparing and submitting a career development award proposal, as well as other research proposals as appropriate.
This position provides an excellent opportunity for the Research Fellow to work within a multidisciplinary research team to explore advanced areas in health information technology. The Computational Health Informatics Program – CHIP – is home to 20 faculty working at the forefront of research areas extending beyond clinical NLP to digital epidemiology, clinical genomics, and app ecosystems for health records. CHIP and the Health NLP Lab value diversity and believe that it is essential to achieving excellence. We therefore strongly encourage candidates from underrepresented groups to apply. The fellowship includes an academic appointment at Harvard Medical School, as well as a hospital appointment at Boston Children’s Hospital.
