Postdoctoral Research Fellowship: Machine Learning in Healthcare
A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Carlos Fernandez-Granda at the Courant Institute and Center for Data Science at NYU. The focus of the position is the design of deep-learning methodology for medical applications, with emphasis on domain adaptation, high-dimensional signal processing, and semi-supervised learning. The developed techniques will be applied to automatic quantification of rehabilitation dose in stroke patients from sensor and camera data, in collaboration with the Mobilis Lab in the Department of Neurology at NYU School of Medicine, which aims to enhance motor recovery after stroke.
Candidates should possess a Ph.D. in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Data Science, or related disciplines. In addition, they should have a strong background in machine learning, experience with deep learning, solid programming skills and an interest in healthcare. They must have the ability to work independently and with an interdisciplinary team.
The position is available immediately, and is renewable yearly for up to three years.
