Eastern Virginia Medical School (EVMS) is recruiting for three positions in medical modeling, computational biology and biostatistics. The professionals recruited into this team will work with other faculty and staff in a consortium program focused on the development of a digital patient platform and analytic, diagnostic and therapeutic applications. This work is intended to expand upon the historical efforts to develop a virtual human based solely on physiological models. We seek applicants who have an understanding of the need to construct a contemporary platform through which a variety of types and sources of data and models can be aggregated, analyzed and deployed through applications that address health issues at both the individual patient and “groups of patients” levels. Data sources will range from the molecular to the neighborhoods and communities of interest that affect patient care. These positions are part of a partnership among EVMS, Old Dominion University (ODU), Sentara Healthcare and the Hampton Roads Bioscience Research Consortium.  An ideal candidate will have an understanding of the history and current status of work on physiological models, in silico approaches to diagnosis and treatment of patients and communities, on the concept of digital twinning, of the use of AI, the multi-modal analysis of health-related data aggregated in a very large data lake, and the development of multi-level models and simulations.


Requirements

Minimum Master’s Degree in bioinformatics, medical modeling & simulation, or computational biology or related field plus three (3) years’ research experience. Ph.D. preferred.

Bioinformatics: 

Molecular biology and proteomics experience is required, but the most essential expertise is bioinformatics experience. Bioinformatics expertise in the context of multi-level data sets and models will be an added advantage.

Medical Modeling & Simulation: Some knowledge of molecular biology and proteomics experience is helpful, but the most essential expertise is experience in developing and using modeling and simulation constructs. Bioinformatics expertise in the context of multi-level data sets and models will be an added advantage.

Computational Biology: Molecular biology and proteomics experience is required, but the most essential expertise is computational biology experience. Expertise in the context of multi-level data sets and models will be an added advantage.
