The Department of Biomedical Informatics (BMI) at The Ohio State University (OSU, http://www.osu.edu) currently has multiple opportunities for post-doctoral researchers with research interests related to Clinical Research Informatics (CRI) and Translational Bioinformatics (TBI).
As part of the OSU Wexner Medical Center
(OSUWMC), BMI leads a robust and expansive informatics research, development, service, and training program spanning multiple domains, including: high performance computing computational biology and bioinformatics, translational bioinformatics, clinical research informatics, clinical informatics, and public health informatics. These efforts are complemented by access to the unique living laboratory afforded by the diverse education, research, and clinical activities of OSU/OSUWMC. Faculty and staff in BMI have comprehensive access to an advanced information systems environment including inpatient and outpatient electronic health records, data warehousing platforms, a variety of enterprise research information systems, and high-performance computing and data management facilities for both clinical and bio-molecular data, the later being afforded by a partnership with the Ohio Supercomputer Center
(OSC). Unprecedented growth in extramural programmatic funding over the past decade, as well as the operations of OSUWMCs CTSA-funded Center for Clinical and Translational Science
(CCTS) and NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center
(CCC), and an ongoing $1 billion expansion of OSUWMC, further enhance the breadth and depth of resources available at the nation's largest, integrated health sciences campus.
We are specifically seeking candidates with experience and interests in one or more of the following areas:
- The discovery, collection, integration, storage, and retrieval of complex data sets in support of clinical and translational research programs;
- The application of network analysis, hypothesis discovery, and data mining methods to heterogeneous biomedical data sets;
