Environmental sensing for health: candidates with experience with personal health sensing – mobile, on-body, or ambient – with emphasis on generating, analyzing, and/or visualizing human generated data
Agent-oriented machine learning and artificial intelligence with emphasis on probabilistic inference from complex and heterogeneous biomedical and health data
High-performance computing architectures and systems and Big Data analytics for bioengineering and health/medical science
Computational systems biology, at a single-cell or multi-cell level, with emphasis on statistical and computational aspects as well as emerging subfields of potential significance in health applications
SICE is the first school of its kind and among the largest in the country, with unsurpassed breadth. Its mission is to excel and lead in research, education, and outreach spanning and integrating the breadth of computing, IT and modern engineering. It includes over 110 tenure-line faculty, 1200 graduate students, and 1900 undergraduate majors at IU-Bloomington. It offers PhDs in Computer Science, Informatics, Information Science, and Intelligent Systems Engineering.
Bloomington is a culturally thriving college town with a moderate cost of living and the amenities for an active lifestyle. IU is renowned for its top-ranked music school, high-performance computing and networking facilities, and performing and fine arts.
Applicants should have a demonstrable potential for excellence in research and teaching and a PhD in a related field, expected before August 2018.
