Harvard Medical School Instructor, Assistant, or Associate Professor in the Computational Health Informatics Program

Boston Children’s Hospital
Boston, MA

Establish your independent research program in computational health at Harvard and Boston Children’s Hospital.

CHIP, the Computational Health Informatics Program at Boston Children’s Hospital (, an affiliate of Harvard Medical School and a collaborating program of its Department of Biomedical Informatics, is recruiting research faculty at junior and senior levels to join us in transforming care delivery and biomedical science.

We seek outstanding candidates passionate about advancing the ability to acquire and then reason over an entire spectrum of data types ranging from molecular and genomic all the way to clinical, epidemiological, environmental and social. Focus areas may include, but are not limited to medical applications of machine learning/AI including clinical decision support and predictive medicine, genomic medicine, re-imagined clinical trials, real-world evidence, visualization of big data, integrative omics, SMART on FHIR apps and infrastructure, and image/voice/video analysis.

Candidates at the Instructor or Assistant Professor level should have strong quantitative backgrounds and a history of innovative approaches to biomedical scientific inquiry or the translation of computational methods to engineering or software applications in medicine. Candidates at the Associate Professor level must additionally demonstrate scientific leadership and the ability to develop sustainable, impactful projects.

All qualified applicants must have a doctoral degree (MD, PhD, MD/PhD, or equivalent) and a strong record of publishing. Faculty are expected to teach, be exceptional mentors and have or achieve substantial independent funding.

CHIP, founded in 1994, is a multidisciplinary applied research and education program. Biomedical informatics has become a major theme and methodology for biomedical science, health care delivery, and population health, involving high-dimensional modeling and understanding of patients from the molecular to the population levels. We design information infrastructure for medical decision making, diagnosis, care redesign, public health management, and re-imagined clinical trials. The field is inherently interdisciplinary, drawing on traditional biomedical disciplines, the science and technology of computing, data science, biostatistics, epidemiology, decision theory, omics, implementation science, and health care policy and management. Our faculty are trained in medicine, data science, computer science, mathematics and epidemiology. Though CHIP has a robust pediatric research agenda, our interests span across all ages.

For the work of CHIP, Health 2.0 recently voted Boston Children's Hospital the 10 Year Global Retrospective Top Influenceramong all health care organizations.
