 Faculty Position in Laboratory Medicine and Pathology Informatics
Minneapolis, MN
Posted: 10/18/18

The Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology at the University of Minnesota Medical School seeks a full-time ABP board certified/eligible MD or MD/PhD anatomic or clinical pathologist with expertise in pathology informatics. Subspecialty training in pathology informatics such as a clinical informatics fellowship and/or an advanced degree in informatics is preferred; however, applicants with other training or experience may also qualify. Candidates must have demonstrated ability in teaching and in scholarly productivity.

The University of Minnesota is an Affirmative Action / Equal Opportunity Employer.

The incumbent is expected to participate in clinical service and have significant effort dedicated to institutional informatics services and initiatives. The position will have protected time to develop an investigational career, with a goal of developing collaborative or independent research. The successful candidate will also support trainee and faculty development in informatics through collaboration and teaching.

This position will provide expert support in informatics across the MHealth care system and maintain a level of systems integration necessary to support safe and effective patient care as it relates to the professional practice of laboratory medicine and pathology. This position will work collaboratively with the Director of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology Informatics and Chief Medical Informatics Officer, MHealth Information Services (IS) department and the Division of Computational Pathology to foster a dynamic and constructive partnership.

The University of Minnesota is a large and diverse university and medical school with a large subspecialty practice plan of over 900 physicians, University of Minnesota Physicians. The Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology is home to a large number of anatomic and clinical pathology faculty as well as many basic science faculty involved in research, undergraduate and graduate education. The department also has an ACGME approved residency program and five ACGME approved fellowships. More information about the department can be found at http://www.med.umn.edu/pathology/


Faculty Position in Computational Pathology/Biology
Minneapolis, MN
Posted: 09/27/18

The Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology at the University of Minnesota is seeking to hire a full-time tenure track/tenured or academic track faculty member to join our Division of Computational Pathology. Computational Pathology is an emerging field that seeks to extract clinically actionable knowledge from high-dimensional data and to present that information to clinicians in an interactive and intuitive way that optimizes clinical decision making and maximizes patient safety. The goal is to use intelligent algorithms, including machine learning, to design decision support systems that will allow for continuous quality improvement beyond current best practices, while at the same time being faster and less burdensome to the stakeholders in the healthcare environment.

Candidates must hold a Ph.D., M.D. or M.D. /Ph.D., or an equivalent degree. Academic rank and appointment type will be commensurate with years of experience and accomplishments. Candidates are expected to demonstrate a strong record of research productivity and academic achievement in an analytical field, and the ideal candidate will have 3+ years of experience analyzing complex data sets and 3+ years of programming experience in a high-level computer programming language.

The successful candidate will act as a bridge between the directors of the clinical laboratories that have the content expertise and the team of computer programmers that develop and maintain the software that enhances the relevant clinical and research workflows. This will allow the candidate to write impactful manuscripts to disseminate our innovative approaches and will open up grant opportunities for translational research.

Research already underway and possible focus areas include:

• Optimizing HLA epitope analysis by data mining years’ worth of Luminex single antigen bead assays to improve solid organ transplant allocations and outcomes
• Use machine learning algorithms to cluster flow cytometry data in high-dimensional space to identify novel cell populations and to develop more sensitive tests to detect minimal residual disease
• Using artificial intelligence to perform automated image analysis of surgical pathology slides, allowing the field of digital pathology to transition from a subjective and descriptive assessment to one that is increasingly objective, quantitative and standardized
• The automated calling of structural variation (copy number variants) using cytogenetic SNP arrays and next generation sequencing data with an interactive visualization and comparison to data from other cases seen in the lab
• Other areas that the applicant has experience and/or interest in developing

In addition to advancing the clinical mission, there will be valuable research opportunities through collaborations with the Institute for Health Informatics (http://healthinformatics.umn.edu/) and the Masonic Cancer Center (http://www.cancer.umn.edu) where the successful candidate can mine extensive retrospective data for correlations with clinical outcomes. Opportunities to mentor and teach PhD, MD/PhD and medical students, residents and fellows will also be available.
