Post Doctoral Research Associate Fellowships available in Biomedical Informatics The University of Pittsburgh Biomedical Informatics Training Program (BMITP) has research fellowships available to qualified applicants. One of the oldest biomedical informatics training programs in the country - with continuous NLM funding since 1988 - Pitt's program combines the strengths of 17 core faculty with the breadth of a top-10 medical school in one of the most livable cities in the US. Our research combines work in computer science, biology and healthcare to tackle basic and applied problems in bioinformatics, clinical informatics, and public health informatics: * Developing touch screen electronic medical records for improving HIV treatment in Malawi Africa * Applying machine learning methods to make better predictions about viral-host protein-protein interactions * Using Bayesian methods to predict the development of Alzheimer's Disease in Genome Wide Association (GWAS) Studies. * Designing computer systems to alert physicians about medication problems in nursing homes * Creating early warning biosurveillance systems that monitor the health of populations and detect outbreaks more rapidly * Programming simulations of infectious disease outbreaks so that public health officials can make more informed decisions * Developing new ways to evaluate protein x-ray crystallography results We offer: * Post Doctoral Research Associate training * Certificate Programs - in classroom or online (1 year) * Masters (2 years) * PhD (typically 5 years) Many of our graduating PhD students enter successful academic careers, hired by excellent universities in the U.S. and around the world. Students with certificates and MS degrees accept key positions in bioinformatics start-ups, high-tech companies, government agencies and major medical centers. A variety of funding is available for our training program and Post Doctoral Research Associates usually receive two years of full funding including living stipend and tuition (http://www.dbmi.pitt.edu/node/311). Our students come from a wide variety of backgrounds, including Computer Science, Engineering, Biology, and many others, both directly from undergraduate work and with previous experience and/or graduate training. This year our application deadline is January 15, 2013 for admission into the program for Fall 2013.
