Discover Your Career at Emory University
Emory University is a leading research university that fosters excellence and attracts world-class talent to innovate today and prepare leaders for the future. We welcome candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of our academic community.
Woodruff Health Sciences Center, Emory University, is seeking to recruit multiple, open-rank tenure-track faculty (assistant, associate, or full professor) with expertise in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and either experience or interest in its application to diabetes and its complications.
Emory is making a major commitment to Artificial Intelligence (AI) with the goal of creating a vibrant and coherent research and teaching community that represents the diverse interests of Emory's schools and units and expand offerings to undergraduate, graduate, and professional school students. As part of this "AI-Humanity Initiative" supported by the Office of the Provost at Emory University, the Emory Global Diabetes Research Center (EGDRC) is committed to enabling its rich interdisciplinary research ecosystem for the application of cutting-edge AI and machine learning (ML) methods to diabetes research. We interpret AI as broadly but not limited to data analytics, image analysis and computer vision, prediction, and modeling. Some of the areas for domestic and global health applications of AI and ML to diabetes and associated cardiometabolic complications (e.g., heart, kidney, limb, and eye diseases) include: etiology, prevention; diagnosis and prognosis; precision diabetes; experiments customized to disease phenotypes and behavioral and/or pharmacological approaches; approaches to health equity, public health, and healthcare delivery; complex systems and biology modeling to optimize discovery; and decision-making for policy and practice.
The ideal candidate should have a doctoral degree (in a relevant discipline) with a strong record of AI academic research, a demonstrated capacity to publish and the potential to secure external funding, and either have prior experience or be interested in the application of AI to diabetes-related domains. The individual should have ability to be a team player in interdisciplinary research while carving out a distinctive niche diabetes. Multiple opportunities for multidisciplinary collaboration exist across the Woodruff Health Sciences Center (WHSC) and other divisions of Emory University. The candidate's interest and scholarly discipline will determine the primary appointment (e.g., Schools of Medicine, Public Health, Nursing, or the College of Arts and Sciences), and cross-appointments within the 3 WHSC schools and/or any of the other Emory Schools (Arts & Sciences, Business, Law, Theology) will be encouraged.
How to Apply: Candidates must apply thru the Emory Career website.
Applicants must include:
- a letter addressed to "Chair of the Search Committee, AI-Diabetes, Emory Global Diabetes Research Center", describing their interest and relevant background, and brief research vision;
- a curriculum vita; and

Evaluation of applications will begin in April 2022 and continue until all positions are filled. Applications will be kept confidential, and references will not be contacted without the permission of the applicant.
