瑞士苏黎世大学生物医学领域的机器学习博士后职位

Department of Quantitative Biomedicine

Postdoc Opening in Machine Learning in Biomedicine

The University of Zurich together with the University Hospital of Zurich are embarking on a concerted effort to develop informatics programs to advance biomedical research using cutting edge computational approaches. As part of these efforts, the Krauthammer research group investigates topics in clinical data science and translational bioinformatics, such as knowledge discovery from Big Data sources (Electronic Medical Record), development of Natural Language processing, information retrieval and extraction routines, as well as the analysis of human Omics data. The group is headed by Prof. Michael Krauthammer and is part of the Department of Quantitative Biomedicine (DQBM).

Your responsibilities

For this position, we are looking for motivated PostDoc candidates who are interested in applying their computational skills to medical as well as biological problems. An example of Machine Learning (ML) in biology is our latest work on genome editing tools (base editors) for basic research and gene therapy. We developed BE-DICT 1), an attention-based deep learning algorithm capable of predicting base editing outcomes with high accuracy.

An example of ML in healthcare is our work on time series analysis for patient readmission prediction. In this work 2), we explored the systematic application of neural network models for predicting 30 days all-cause readmission after discharge from a HF hospitalization. And more recently, we are focused on the analysis of patient trajectories (i.e. using patients' medical history) and "patient similarities" (i.e. patient similarity assessment on longitudinal health data) for care pathway/knowledge discovery, and personalized outcome prediction 3). Our goal is to develop state-of-the- art approaches and build best-in-class methods to capitalize on digital clinical information to automatically compare, analyze and visualize complex longitudinal patient journeys focusing on the concept of patient journey similarity. This involves building decision support systems powered by predictive algorithms for guiding patient therapy across all disease stages, the assessment of treatment effects using counterfactual inference and the identification of causal mechanisms driving disease progression.
