    Job: Postdoctoral Scientist – Moore Lab – Computational Biomedicine

    Requisition # HRC1147145

    Principal Investigator, Jason Moore, PhD, is looking for a Postdoctoral Scientist to join the team!

    The primary goal of the Artificial Intelligence Innovation Laboratory (A2I) is to understand human health as a complex adaptive system so that we can improve the prediction, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of common diseases such as Alzheimer’s, cancer and cardiovascular disease. We take a computational approach focused on the development, evaluation and application of innovative AI, machine learning and systems approaches to modeling biomedical big data for precision health. We are particularly interested in AI methods that are accessible, explainable, fair, open, transparent and unbiased. Recent work has focused on automated machine learning (AutoML) methods which are able to bring this challenging technology to nonexperts. Our tree-based pipeline optimization tool (TPOT) algorithm and software was one of the first AutoML methods. To learn more, visit Moore Research Lab | Cedars-Sinai.

    Are you ready to be a part of breakthrough research?

    Working independently but in close cooperation and in consultation with the Principal Investigator 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 research techniques, and protocols, as well as analyze, interpret, summarize, and compile data.

    Primary 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 co-author.
