Applications are invited for a temporary post within UCD School of Medicine (SoM) / Systems Biology Ireland (SBI).

Modern biomedicine becomes increasingly data driven. This position embraces this development to create a post at the intersection of computer science, biomedicine and systems biology. UCD has a strong track record in interdisciplinary research and has built an environment that promotes such interactions to advance new fields of research that are timely, innovative, and impactful. Towards this aim the UCD School of Medicine and Systems Biology Ireland have created a position for an ambitious investigator who will build a cutting-edge research programme that develops and applies Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) approaches to biomedical problems including personalised and precision medicine (PPM). PPM is an EU as well as a UCD strategic priority, in addition to its importance to industry in drug development. The implementation of PPM requires seamless interactions between advanced computer science and medicine with systems biology providing the translational conveyor belt. This post will sit at these interfaces and is expected to leverage a highly interdisciplinary, vibrant environment to work with clinicians, biologists, mathematicians and computational colleagues to build a strong research programme in AI/ML for biomedicine.
