Woodruff Health Sciences Center, Emory University, is seeking to recruit multiple, open-rank tenure-track faculty (assistant, associate, or full professor) with expertise in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and either experience or interest in its application to diabetes and its complications.
Emory is making a major commitment to Artificial Intelligence (AI) with the goal of creating a vibrant and coherent research and teaching community that represents the diverse interests of Emorys schools and units and expand offerings to undergraduate, graduate, and professional school students. As part of this AI-Humanity Initiative supported by the Office of the Provost at Emory University, the Emory Global Diabetes Research Center (EGDRC) is committed to enabling its rich interdisciplinary research ecosystem for theapplication of cutting-edge AI and machine learning (ML) methods to diabetes research. WeinterpretAI as broadly but not limited to data analytics, image analysis and computer vision, prediction, and modeling. Some of the areas for domestic and global health applications of AI and ML to diabetes and associated cardiometabolic complications (e.g., heart, kidney, limb, and eye diseases) include: etiology, prevention; diagnosis and prognosis; precision diabetes; experiments customized to disease phenotypes and behavioral and/or pharmacological approaches; approaches to health equity, public health, and healthcare delivery; complex systems and biology modeling to optimize discovery; and decision-making for policy and practice.
The ideal candidate should have a doctoral degree (in a relevant discipline) with a strong record of AI academic research, a demonstrated capacity to publish and the potential to secure external funding, and either have prior experience or be interested in the application of AI to diabetes-related domains.
