Postdoctoral Scientist - Urbanowicz Lab - Computational Biomedicine
Posted on: November 19, 2022
Principal Investigator, Dr. Ryan Urbanowicz -is seeking a
Postdoctoral Scientist to join the Department of Computational
Biomedicine!The Department of Computational Biomedicine reflects
Cedars-Sinai's commitment to advancing medical discovery and the
recognition of the foundational role complex data plays in our
research and clinical care. We are recruiting multiple postdoctoral
research fellows to join the URBS-lab (Unbounded Research in
Biomedical Systems) within the newly established Department of
Computational Biomedicine at the Cedars Sinai Medical Center
(CSMC). We welcome applications from highly motivated candidates
who enjoy innovative thinking.Are you ready to be a part of
breakthrough research?The URBS-lab focuses on the development and
application of machine learning, artificial intelligence, and
statistical methodologies targeting a variety of domains and data
types within biomedical research. Emphasis is placed on developing
methods that are interpretable/explainable, scalable to 'big data',
and capable of detecting complex patterns of association. Current
research focuses on automated machine learning, rule-based
modeling, feature selection, and evolutionary optimization. Other
areas of interest include (but are not limited to) rare-variant
analysis, data simulation, data integration, heterogeneous patient
subgroup identification, time-series analysis, deep learning, and
identifying and correcting for biases. We are a highly
collaborative lab with access to EHR, genomic, and other 'omics'
data in areas of research such as obstructive sleep apnea,
congenital heart disease, pancreatic cancer, transplantation
donor-recipient matching, and hospital readmission. To learn more,
please visit -Urbanowicz Research Lab - Cedars-SinaiWorking
independently but in close cooperation and in consultation with Dr.
Ryan Urbanowicz and other research scientists, the Postdoctoral
Scientist will perform routine and complex computational,
mathematical, and statistical procedures throughout the training
period. As a Postdoctoral Scientist you may develop, adapt, and
implement new techniques, algorithms, analysis pipelines, and
software, as well as analyze, interpret, summarize, and compile
data.#Jobs-IndeedPrimary Duties and Responsibilities:
- May assist in the preparation of grant proposals, but is not
responsible for generating grant funds.
- May participate in publications and presentations as author or

experimental records and documentation and analyze the results with
the Principal Investigator.
- Analyzes interpret, summarizes, and compiles data.
- Operates and maintains equipment and instruments.
- May observe MD-patient or MD-human research subject
interactions as it pertains directly to research being performed.
- Doctorate (MD, PhD, VMD, or DDS) in computer science,
computational biology, data science, bioinformatics, biomedical
informatics, biostatistics, engineering, or a related quantitative
field is required.Experience and Skills:
- Competitive candidates will be proficient in scientific writing
having published in more than one of the areas mentioned as well as
experience with algorithm development/application.
- Including a cover letter and publication examples (first
authorship) are preferred, but not required.
- Independently works on research projects designed in
collaboration with one or more mentors within an area of
