The UvA’s Faculty of Science has the opportunity to launch a major recruitment campaign called ‘Connecting Science’ in the areas of Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, and Computer science. Our ambition is to attract top talent from all over the world to tenure-track positions in a wide range of exciting scientific directions. We offer a vibrant environment and excellent conditions for research, tightly connected to challenging educational programmes.
We are looking for ambitious and motivated scientists to connect different science disciplines. Our goal is to have a maximal impact on science and society.
The digital revolution in healthcare and the unprecedented successes in artificial intelligence and machine learning open up many new opportunities for predictive modelling in diagnosis, prognosis, and prevention using unstructured data sources such as images, signals, documents, and behavioral data, as well as structured demographic data and medical domain knowledge captured in formal representations. The Informatics Institute of the University of Amsterdam has world class research in machine learning, information retrieval, computer vision, computational science, data engineering, and data exchange which are all ingredients for successful solutions in predictive modeling for health. Yet these are isolated efforts and none has its main focus on health. The proposed chair in “AI and Health” is positioned to bring those fields together and establish a research group with a focus on the use and development of AI techniques in healthcare.
