Research Computational Scientist/Senior Computational Scientist in Big Data Analytics for the Precision Pathology Biobanking Center at MSKCC
We are looking for an experienced Computer Scientist, Physicist, Engineer, or Applied Mathematician who would like to drive a newly established group of quantitative scientists in Cancer Research. This is an ideal opportunity for a strong computational person to learn about and deeply impact the future of cancer research, medicine, and health care.
The Precision Pathology Biobanking Center (PPBC) is a newly established Research Center at MSK and its Department of Pathology.
Using complex real-world structured, text, and image data, Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK) has collected over the past 20+ years, the Scientist will develop and implement advanced computational methods to power the PPBC's efforts to build a world-class analytics platform for healthcare data. The development and implementation of cutting-edge computational Big Data Analytics represents a major strategic priority for the Center. This recruitment seeks to expand this expertise within the Center.
The right candidate will have a track record of developing new quantitative methods such as Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence (AI), or Natural Language Processing (NLP) and apply them to complex problems in medicine. To that end, the Computational Scientist will actively contribute to the research community through collaborations with academic partners, publishing in peer-reviewed journals, and attending top-tier conferences.
This position is a leadership position in computational science for the PPBC and will develop, oversee, and implement a comprehensive computational strategy for the Center in addition to directing a team of computational specialists.
As one of the world's premier cancer centers, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center is committed to exceptional patient care, leading-edge research, a...nd superb educational programs. The close collaboration between our physicians and scientists is one of our unique strengths, enabling us to provide patients with the best care available today as we work to discover more effective strategies to prevent, control, and ultimately cure cancer in the future. Our education programs train future physicians and scientists, and the knowledge and experience they gain at Memorial Sloan-Kettering has an impact on cancer treatment and the biomedical research agenda around the world.
