Build your research career in computational health at Harvard and Boston Children’s Hospital. CHIP, the Computational Health Informatics Program at Boston Children’s Hospital, an affiliate of Harvard Medical School and a collaborating program of its Department of Biomedical Informatics, is recruiting postdoctoral fellows with an interest in advancing healthcare with artificial intelligence. We seek outstanding candidates passionate about advancing the ability to acquire and then reason over an entire spectrum of data types ranging from clinical, epidemiological, environmental, and social, all the way down to molecular and genomic. We offer a rich academic environment with exceptional mentors, embedded in a top hospital. CHIP is located in beautiful, newly designed space at 401 Park Drive, in the heart of the Fenway and surrounded by wonderful dining, entertainment and sports.

Candidates who are expert in health IT architectures and standards (e.g., SMART on FHIR apps and infrastructure) will be given special consideration, as will faculty focused on transforming the point of care. 

Areas of focus can include machine learning/AI including clinical decision support and predictive medicine, precision medicine, population health, real-world evidence and data visualization.

Candidates should have strong quantitative backgrounds and capacity for innovative approaches to biomedical scientific inquiry or the translation of computational methods to engineering or software applications in medicine.

All qualified applicants must have a doctoral degree (MD, PhD, MD/PhD, or equivalent) and a strong record of publishing.

CHIP, founded in 1994, is a multidisciplinary applied research and education program. Biomedical informatics has become a major theme and methodology for biomedical science, health care delivery, and population health, involving high-dimensional modeling and understanding of patients from the molecular to the population levels. We design information infrastructure for medical decision making, diagnosis, care redesign, public health management, and re-imagined clinical trials. The field is inherently interdisciplinary, drawing on traditional biomedical disciplines, the science and technology of computing, data science, biostatistics, epidemiology, decision theory, omics, implementation science, and health care policy and management. Our faculty are trained in medicine, data science, computer science, mathematics and epidemiology. Though CHIP has a robust pediatric research agenda, our interests span across all ages. CHIP research highlights are here.

Boston Children’s Hospital is an equal opportunity employer that strongly encourages women and underrepresented minorities candidates apply for positions at our institution.

First positions open May 1, 2024. Applications may be considered on a rolling basis so there could be an advantage to submitting early. Interested applicants are invited to submit a CV, cover letter, research plan, and three references to
