Director of Computational Pathology
Department of Pathology at Massachusetts General Hospital
at Harvard Medical School
The Department of Pathology at Massachusetts General Hospital seeks outstanding candidates for a full-time faculty position to direct the Computational Pathology Division, with operational oversight of this growing area of the department encompassing bioinformatics, digital imaging, and machine learning/artificial intelligence. The academic rank at Harvard Medical School is to be determined in accordance with the successful candidate’s experience and productivity (rank: Instructor/ Assistant/ Associate Professor).
The successful candidate is expected to command a broad range of computational and medical knowledge, as the position will encompass clinical, research, administrative, and teaching components. The clinical role of the position will include full clinical and assay development support for the Center for Integrated Diagnostics. In this role the team develops and maintains the computational infrastructure to generate, analyze, and report genomic findings for MGH patients, and to integrate genomics results with laboratory data. The Director will lead a pathology team consisting of bioinformaticists, web developers, software engineers, data-base managers, and machine-learning experts. The candidate will also direct continuing technology development, especially in the areas of digital imaging and machine learning and is expected to have experience with computational approaches to incorporate data from multiple sources of raw data, extract biologically and clinically relevant information and use mathematical models to generate diagnostic inferences and predictions. Expert-level knowledge of computational and computer resources, infrastructure requirements for big-data and cloud computing are required. Candidates applying multidisciplinary approaches to answer clinically-relevant questions in computational pathology are strongly encouraged to apply.
Candidates should have an M.D., Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. degree, with a significant record of discovery and a record of publishing in peer-reviewed journals. The position will be based at or near the MGH main campus. Salary offered will be consistent with fair market rate and commensurate with experience.
