JOB REQUIREMENTS: Job Summary: Are you passionate about improving
patient health outcomes, optimizing healthcare processes, and advancing
science? Join our dynamic Informatics and Information Technology team at
the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health in
Madison, Wisconsin. We are committed to revolutionizing healthcare
through implementation of advanced data science approaches, conducting
cutting-edge data-centric research, and generating real-world evidence
to improve patient health outcomes at UW Health and beyond. As a Data
Scientist, the incumbent will use real world data including Electronic
Health Record (EHR) data to develop and implement advanced computational
algorithms and support conduct of groundbreaking data-driven research.
On a day-to-day basis, the incumbent could expect to engage in the
following activities: – Data Collection and Preprocessing: preprocess,
and validate EHR data, ensuring data quality and reliability; and
transform raw data into standard data models (OMOP, mCODE, i2b2 etc.). –
Algorithm Development and Optimization: develop and optimize advanced
computational algorithms using Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine
Learning (ML), regression, and rules-based models; apply AI/ML
techniques to analyze EHR data, to uncover hidden biological and health
patterns and gain meaningful insights; evaluate, validate, and implement
AI/ML models, regression, and rules-based algorithms on UW Health EHR
data; and ensure the reliability and accuracy of algorithms for
production environments. – Feature Engineering and Selection: identify
key features of EHR data to enhance model performance; and apply
domain-specific knowledge to identify meaningful features for predictive
modeling. – Predictive Modeling and Insights: build predictive models to
forecast disease risk and progression, health outcomes, and treatment
effectiveness; and gain actionable insights from model outputs and
communicate findings to research community. – Natural Language
Processing (NLP): apply NLP techniques to extract insights from clinical
notes, reports, and unstructured text data; and develop models for
sentiment analysis, entity recognition, and information… For full
