JOBS OF INTEREST TO HAS

  • Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, The Telfer School of Management (TSM) at the University of Ottawa and the University of Ottawa Heart Institute (UOHI) are seeking applications for a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair in Data Analytics for Health Systems Transformation. The selected candidate will hold a tenure-track faculty position and will explore the application of novel data analytics approaches to the transformation of health systems and care delivery with a particular focus on improving complex patient care, including cardiovascular conditions. The research conducted by the Chair holder is expected to focus on the way in which data analytics can drive health systems transformation to create value for patients, clinicians, and institutions. The successful candidate will also have the opportunity to develop tools that can enhance evidence based clinical decision making.  This Chair builds on a unique partnership between the UOHI, a world-class tertiary cardiac center, and the TSM, a triple-accredited business school. The Chair is expected to collaborate with the UOHI Leadership Team to define how best to apply his/her research to strategic UOHI initiatives.  The Chair holder is also expected to teach at the Telfer School of Management and conduct research of relevance for healthcare management practice in the context of data analytics.   Research agenda The research agenda of this interdisciplinary Canada Research Chair draws from relevant fields such as Operations Research, Applied Artificial Intelligence (AI), Information Systems, or Health Informatics to answer the following broad questions: How can analytics-driven clinical and administrative tools provide value to healthcare organizations? How can novel data analytics methods and models improve patient care in a multidisciplinary, multi-stakeholder driven environment? How can data analytics contribute to health systems transformation so as to meet the challenges of integrative and patient-centered care delivery in a post-COVID 19 context? How can applied AI and data analytics support advanced decision making in a health environment?   While research conducted by the Chair will be in collaboration with the UOHI, results need to be scaled up to other settings and contexts. The position will include: Access to UOHI’s data infrastructure including an integrated longitudinal procedural and inpatient database (CardioCore). Expanding access to the electronic health record (EPIC) clinical process of care data, linkages to the provincial administrative database and other relevant databases, including the emerging Ontario Health Data Platform.   Program description Tier 2 Chairs , tenable for five years and renewable once, are for exceptional emerging researchers , acknowledged by their peers as having the potential to lead in their field. For each Tier 2 Chair, the institution receives $100,000 annually for five years, with an additional $20,000 annual research stipend for first-term Tier 2 Chairs.   Candidates should, at a minimum, be assistant or associate professors, or possess the necessary qualifications to be appointed to these levels.

  • Boston, Massachusetts, The Opportunity: The world is being radically transformed by artificial intelligence and other advanced technologies. In 2020, Northeastern University launched the Roux Institute with tech entrepreneur David Roux to build expertise at the intersection of humans and machines. The Roux Institute offers graduate education and research capabilities in areas that will revolutionize life and work: AI, computer and data sciences, digital engineering, and the advanced life sciences and medicine. To learn more about the Roux Institute see this link  https://roux.northeastern.edu/academics/   Applications are sought for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the fields of Computational Medicine and Biomedical Data Science at the Roux Institute at Northeastern University in Portland ME. Research: Cardiac arrest remains a significant cause of death and impaired neurologic function for those who survive, with limited evidence on which to base patient-specific treatment recommendations. The 2021 guidelines from the European Resuscitation Council recommend a single approach to targeted temperature management (TTM) for all initial survivors, with no efforts to stratify the severity of neurological risk after recovery of spontaneous circulation.  Observational retrospective data suggest a differential effect of TTM intensity based on illness severity.  Early stratification of neurological and cardiac risk of patients receiving TTM therapy may enable a Precision Medicine approach with better matching of patient-specific interventions, improving on the dichotomous single-option-or-none approach that is the recommended standard. To test this hypothesis, this project will apply predictive analytics and machine-learning techniques to define differing outcome endotypes as part of early risk severity stratification within 6 hours of recovery of spontaneous circulation. Responsibilities: This position will be within the Life Sciences and Medical Research vertical of the Roux Institute. The position will be jointly supervised by: Professor Raimond L. Winslow, Director of Life Sciences and Medical Research, the Roux Institute; Dr. David Seder, Chief of Critical Care Services, the Maine Medical Center; and Dr. Richard Riker, Director Medical Critical Care, the Maine Medical Center. There are opportunities for collaboration with other faculty at the Roux Institute and the College of Engineering, Northeastern University. Qualifications: D. in Applied Mathematics, Biomedical Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering, or related fields required. Experience with statistical modeling and machine learning applied to health care data or Experience in applied and theoretical machine learning with an interest in healthcare applications
