Post-doctoral Positions at University of Pittsburgh Department of Biomedical Informatics

The University of Pittsburgh Biomedical Informatics Training Program is recruiting exceptional informaticians for our Promotion to Faculty Pipeline Program.  Our goal is to provide the financial and professional support necessary for the development of the next generation of leaders in biomedical informatics. Successful applicants will be supported via post-doctoral funding and mentoring specifically intended to develop a research program suitable for the submission of a career development proposal and transition to a faculty position.

We have several positions available for highly motivated researchers who are aiming to lead transformative research at the intersection of computing and biomedicine. Researchers and clinicians with strong skills in biomedical sciences, computational sciences, information sciences, and data sciences are strongly encouraged to join our team of national leaders in applying computational techniques to advance biomedical science and improve patient care.

A leading national program with a rich history of more than 30 years of research and training, the Pittsburgh Biomedical Informatics Training Program draws on more than 35 faculty from across the University. Research opportunities span the range of translational science, from basic bioinformatics to cancer informatics and discovery; precision medicine; genomics and imaging; population informatics; clinical informatics; health informatics for the underserved;  pharmacovigilance; and many others.

Candidates will have the opportunity to define and engage in collaborative research through our national collaborative efforts.  Pitt’s Department of Biomedical Informatics is home to the NIH Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) Center for Causal Discovery. Our faculty also play leading roles in the Precision Medicine Initiative, the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Network, and several other national collaborations.

Postdoctoral positions are available to U.S. citizens or permanent residents. We are committed to promoting career development of postdoctoral associates. Several of our past postdocs having successfully obtained funding and have transitioned to faculty status at Pitt or other comparable institutions.
