At the Department of Computer Science of the Vrije Universiteit 
Amsterdam we have a tenure track Associate Professor position available 
in the area of AI and Health. This is a joint position with the 
Amsterdam University Medical Center. The application deadline is January 
15th. Please find a brief description of the positions below, including 
a link to a more detailed vacancy description.

*Associate Professor in AI and Health*

The potential of techniques from Artificial Intelligence for improved 
patient care is widely recognized. However, the number of applications 
that make it to the patient or clinician remains low. One of the causes 
of this gap is that clinicians and AI experts often speak a different 
language. To try and bridge the gap between the two disciplines the 
Amsterdam UMC (AUMC) and Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU) are joining 
forces and are creating a joint position between the Cancer Center 
Amsterdam of the Amsterdam UMC and the Department of Computer Science at 
the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam.

The position will focus on the use and re-use of structured and 
semi-structured clinical data (opposed to medical imaging or 
bioinformatics) to deploy and improve machine learning techniques to 
develop clinically relevant models, mainly (but not exclusively) 
targeting predictive modeling and personalization of healthcare. Besides 
purely data-driven approaches, making a combination with the vast amount 
of domain knowledge present in the medical domain is also in scope.

We are looking for a colleague with a cutting expertise, who is a leader 
in the field, and can contribute to our stream of high quality 
publications in this area, acquire external research grants, conduct 
excellent teaching, and act as a bridge builder between the two involved
