The Faculty of Medicine of the University of Geneva benefits from an enriching multicultural environment to which it contributes by its influence within the framework of the mandates that it has given to itself: teaching, research and its partnership with the University Hospitals of Geneva (HUG).

In order to strengthen its dynamic team, the Department of Radiology and Medical Informatics of the University of Geneva Faculty of Medicine is looking for a: - Doctoral research assistant: https://jobs.unige.ch/www/wd_portal.show_job?p_web_site_id=1&p_web_page_id=52832 - Postdoctoral Researcher at 100%: https://jobs.unige.ch/www/wd_portal.show_job?p_web_site_id=1&p_web_page_id=52833

The research will be done within the Data Science for Digital Health (DS4DH) lab and it is funded by Swiss funding agencies in collaboration with multiple industrial partners in the HealthTech sector. The objective is to develop novel Natural Language Processing (NLP) technologies to extract knowledge from unstructured data, as well as to design state-of-the-art deep learning models (Transformer-based Language Models, Graph Neural Networks, etc.) to gather insights from knowledge graphs within the biomedical and healthcare domains.

The selected candidates will be located at the Campus Biotech, which is the life sciences hub for the Lake Geneva area.

The newly established DS4DH group, under the Department of Radiology and Medical Informatics, Faculty of Medicine of the University of Geneva aims to design and implement novel algorithms and computational methods for the management and analysis of complex and large-scale datasets in the health and life sciences domains to foster innovative digital health solutions. With multiple PhD’s and Postdoctoral researchers working in a vibrant and interdisciplinary environment, the group is particularly interested in developing research around machine learning and NLP models that can blend and exploit (semantically) rich and (often) non-Euclidean datasets to create actionable insights. DS4DH is located at Campus Biotech and works closely with other academic and private actors at the forefront of innovation in digital health.
