Your responsibilities

You and your group will be embedded in the vibrant and thriving Health AI community in Munich including the Institute of AI for Health, Helmholtz AI, the Institute of Computational Biology, the Helmholtz Pioneer Campus, and ELLIS Munich (with the opportunity to join the ELLIS society).

We encourage both early-career and established researchers to put forward their original scientific proposal with a clear pathway to establishing themselves as drivers in the field. An outstanding academic track record, a collaborative and entrepreneurial mindset, and first leadership experience puts you in an ideal position to benefit from and nurture our Health AI environment. International and/or industry experience are considered an asset. You will lead the development and application of cutting-edge machine learning approaches to analyze and integrate complex multi-modal health data. Potential areas of research for your group include, but are not limited to longitudinal data analysis, deep representation learning, and interpretable/​explainable/​robust AI. Potential application areas include clinical time series analysis, electronic health records and sensor data integration, device optimization for clinical and home care, and comprehensive molecular and image data analysis for advanced therapy.
