As a pioneer, do you want to conduct research into the development and implementation of Artificial Intelligence (AI) within our healthcare? Do you want to get started with care data to make the application of AI in the clinic a success? Do you want to implement those models in the clinic and demonstrate the usefulness (or not) of AI for the patient and care provider? Then you are the Postdoc Impact Clinical AI that we are looking for.
● You evaluate the value of clinical AI models in practice.
● You draw up the research agenda of the AI team in collaboration with two PhD students and stakeholders within and outside the LUMC.
● You have conducted high-quality scientific research and research experience in medicine (with demonstrable experience in data analysis), epidemiology, medical statistics, medical decision-making, medical informatics or similar
● You have some programming experience, for example in python, R or Stata
● You speak and is fluent in Dutch and English
What are you going to do?
You conduct scientific research into the added value, or the ‘value’ of AI models in clinical practice. There are many scientific publications about machine learning models and smart algorithms for medical purposes. However, few models have yet been validated and implemented in practice. This research therefore puts you at the forefront of science and gives you the opportunity to take groundbreaking steps in the field of AI implementation in healthcare in the academic and practical fields. You will work for this program as a postdoc in the AI team. Your main tasks consist of setting up, implementing and evaluating new AI projects within the LUMC, as well as giving substance to and supervising the research within the team. You will also contribute to this new, emerging field by disseminating knowledge of research results in the form of scientific articles, collaborations with other researchers and presentations at conferences and meetings. You actively work with data scientists, medical staff and patients. You work together with colleagues from various backgrounds to bring valuable AI into the clinic. Are you interested in doing scientific research on clinical AI? Then this vacancy may be for you. You work together with colleagues from various backgrounds to bring valuable AI into the clinic.

What do we ask for?
You have a PhD in a research field related to medicine (with demonstrable experience in data analysis), epidemiology, medical statistics, medical decision making, or medical informatics and experience with clinical evaluation. Of course you have an affinity with artificial intelligence. You are initiative-oriented, result-oriented and can switch well between different fields of medicine and AI. It is important that you are fluent in both written and spoken Dutch and English
The LUMC’s Information Technology & Digital Innovation (IT&DI) department realizes the link between IT and healthcare. We are at the heart of our organization and enable the delivery of top referral care, international research and academic education. Innovation, working with the latest technology and knowledge development are paramount. For this project, you will collaborate with the Department of Biomedical Data Sciences of the LUMC, with leading expertise in the field of medical statistics, molecular epidemiology, medical decision making and data management. The team you will join is young, enthusiastic and driven. We are also called the start-up of the IT & DI department and we are proud of that! We find personal development and the exchange of knowledge very important. We also work flexibly.
Career in the LUMC
You have never finished learning and that is why your development is central to us. In addition, the LUMC facilitates in maintaining, broadening and deepening your knowledge and skills. But personal development, mobility and career advice are also part of this. This function is for the duration of the project and your mutual growth and / or development possibilities can be explored.
