Department of Medicine ( DOM) at Mayo Clinic Rochester is the largest department in the world with over 500 physician specialists in 13 specialties ( or divisions). Our physicians are involved in cutting edge research to bring new discoveries for patient care.
The departments AI and Informatics program is being established to support all the AI and Informatics activities from discovery to translation to application to evaluation of the new discoveries.
Within the DOM our largest division is Gastroenterology and Hepatology (GIH). The GIH vision is to lead the development of innovative artificial intelligence based healthcare solutions for diagnosis and treatment of gastrointestinal disorders that can be used by physicians and patients globally with the eventual goal of transforming patient experience and outcomes. As the #1 GI Division in the nation, we are confident that our disease content experts (physicians) in partnership with a team of skilled AI analysts can leverage our extensive and detailed institutional datasets to create these innovative tools and solutions. One of our current priorities is to develop algorithms using still images and videos acquired during endoscopy with the aim to improve procedure quality, safety and diagnostic accuracy that translate into better patient outcomes. We are specifically looking for individuals with strong machine learning and computer vision skills and would be happy to answer more specific questions to help you understand if this position is a good fit for you.
While the current need is for GIH the selected senior data scientist will work with the bigger team at the DOM especially for the needs for data access, translational, application and evaluation needs.
