Postdoctoral Scholar Position -- Machine Learning for Genomic Medicine and Health Equity

The biomedical data science lab (https://www.cuilab.net) at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center is looking for highly motivated candidates for a Postdoctoral Scholar position. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to develop innovative machine learning strategies for equitable genomic medicine. Our goal is to prevent or reduce new health disparities arising from biomedical data inequality by obtaining key knowledge and creating open resources to establish a new paradigm for machine learning with multiethnic clinical omics data. For more information about the scientific premise and rationale for this research program, please see our pilot study paper (Deep transfer learning for reducing health care disparities arising from biomedical data inequality).

This position is funded by an NIH R01 grant until August 2026.

Qualifications

  • Ph.D. in Computational Biology, Computer Science, Statistics, or a related field.

  • Expertise in machine learning and bioinformatics is required.

  • Research experience in biomedical data analysis is a significant plus.

Located in Memphis, USA, a dynamic city rich in culture, history, diversity, music, and cuisine, the University of Tennessee Health Science Center is one of the largest and most comprehensive academic health centers in the United States with a solid commitment to postdoctoral training. This position includes an excellent benefits package.

HOW TO APPLY: Please send your CV to Dr. Yan Cui (ycui2@uthsc.edu).
