The Artificial Intelligence Lab is hiring highly motivated postdoctoral researchers that will independently lead research efforts towards the lab’s mission of developing (deep) machine learning techniques to assist clinical decision making, avoid medical errors and ultimately improve patient health. Due to our recent founding date, we are looking for experienced and autonomous individuals who will be central in the lab’s strategic orientation in the coming years.
The lab’s focus lies on parsing, modelling and interpreting textual resources such as patient records or scholarly biomedical articles. We are working on a wide range of fundamental and applied challenges in this domain. Other content modalities such as biomedical images, time series, drug prescriptions or *omics are of interest as well.
