What do we require?
Department: The Medical Informatics Department in Amsterdam UMC, location AMC, is committed to improve healthcare through research into the management, support, and evaluation of patient care using methods and techniques from medical informatics, computer science, epidemiology, statistics, human-factors and related disciplines. The department also plays an important role in the development and delivery of various courses at the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Amsterdam: the 3-year bachelor’s degree in Medical Informatics, the 2-year master’s degree in Medical Informatics (in English), and the online master’s degree Health Informatics for (healthcare) professionals.
The department’s research is carried out by 4 professors whose collective lines of research focus on the following topics: Health Data Science; predictive and causal models; natural language processing; semantic interoperability; decision support and feedback to healthcare professionals and patients; epidemiology of kidney diseases, evaluation of information systems; evaluation of care; and user-centered design. For example, we develop NLP-based prediction models for early detection of cancer in primary care and ML-based systems to detect adverse events in the vulnerable elderly population in the hospital, and integrate these systems in the Electronic Health Record. Together, the research topics form links to the learning health system, which essentially boils down to improving care by making use of knowledge and (routinely collected) data. The department also houses four (inter)national quality of care registries that form a vehicle for research.
The researchers of the department participate in various research institutes and programs of the Amsterdam UMC, most notably the Methodology program of the Amsterdam Public Health institute (APH). They also participate in the Amsterdam Medical Data Science platform and teach in the newly formed joint AI for Health master track between Amsterdam UMC and the AI programs of the Free University and the University of Amsterdam.
We offer you ample opportunity for development, deepening and broadening, additional training and a place to grow! Working at Amsterdam UMC means working in an inspiring and professional environment where development is encouraged in every respect.
