UCLA Health seeks a Senior Biomedical Informatician in LA, CA.
A major objective of dementia research at the UCLA Easton Center is to understand the genetic risk factors for dementia and how genetics can be used to predict disease in clinical settings. We plan to achieve this by studying electronic health records (EHR) with genetics data.
The Senior Biomedical Informatician will develop and evaluate dementia phenotypes from the EHR, apply and improve genetic and clinical risk scores that predict dementia phenotypes, assess risk score performance among different ancestries, and merge and harmonize datasets from multiple sources. In this role, you will use analytical techniques from genetics, biomedical informatics, computer science and statistics. These datasets include hundreds of thousands to millions of individuals. Your analyses will be performed via local high performance clusters and cloud computing.
UCLA is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, or protected Veteran status.
