Due to the rapidly increasing importance of Data Science in the field of Diabetes Care and, in particular, in Diabetes Technology, the Medical Faculty of the University of Bern, together with the Diabetes Center Berne (DCB), a platform of the Swiss Institute for Translational and Entrepreneurial Medicine (sitem-insel), invites applications for an
Assistant Professor (with Tenure Track) for Data Science in Diabetes Care
Candidates should hold a PhD in engineering, physics, computer science, or other related areas, ideally have 3 – 5 years of postdoctoral and independent research experience, and are expected to initiate and establish an internationally competitive research group. Experience in the field of diabetes research will be a strong plus. Acquiring third-party funding and an ability to closely collaborate with clinical researchers, engineers, and industrial partners is key as the aim is to build an integrated, multidisciplinary research laboratory committed to developing and translating novel medical applications, products, or services into clinical care and the healthcare marketplace. The appointee will have the opportunity to teach graduate-level courses within the University's Biomedical Engineering and Artificial Intelligence in Medicine Master's programs.
The University of Bern is committed to promoting women's careers in STEMM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, and Medicine) in research and higher education. To that end, applications from women are particularly welcome and highly encouraged for this position.
The position is to be occupied by July 1, 2023 or upon agreement. For additional information on the opening, please contact Professor Raphael Sznitman, president of the appointment committee (e-mail: email@example.com).
