Open Rank:
Assistant Professor/Associate Professor/Professor Tenure Track Faculty Position

The Department of Biomedical Informatics (DBMI) of Columbia University seeks exceptional faculty members of any rank in the tenure track.

The positions are open to researchers interested in developing and applying informatics theory and achieving tangible benefits to health care and biology. Three foci are (1) machine learning for healthcare and health-related data science, (2) AI and technology-based interventions to improve health care and the health of individuals and populations, and (3) translational bioinformatics.

DBMI is an interdisciplinary department, comprising 45 faculty members and 50 students and postdoctoral fellows. The Department has amassed a large, diverse research portfolio, breaking new ground in several areas of informatics research. Its mission is to improve the health of the population and to make biomedical discoveries using information and computational techniques. It runs a diverse portfolio of clinical applications for NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital including a 7-million-patient, 20,000-user electronic health record and a number of vendor products. The Department is known for its work on informatics to support clinical care and clinical research, observational research, machine learning for healthcare, human-centered AI, and translational bioinformatics.

The ideal candidate will have a strong record of accomplishments and publications in research areas spanning the boundary between life sciences and the computational sciences.

The candidate will benefit from interactions with various faculty from the Columbia University Irving Medical Center, the School of Engineering and Applied Science, the Data Science Institute, Columbia Business School, Columbia Climate School, and the School of Arts and Science. Applicants must have the potential to do pioneering research and to teach effectively.

The Department, like the University itself, is an extraordinarily vibrant academic community. We are especially interested in candidates who through their research, teaching and/or service will contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community. Women and minorities are especially encouraged to apply. For further information about the Department and our programs, please go to our webpage at:


The candidate must have a doctorate in Biomedical Informatics, Computer Science, Statistics, Physics, Computational Biology, or a related computational or health field and/or a medical degree.

The level of appointment will be commensurate with experience.
