RESPONSIBILITIES

  • Develop cutting edge machine learning algorithms to predict deterioration in a patient’s condition long before the deterioration is detectable
  • Identify data sets needed to develop analytics through consultation and collaboration with faculty, researchers, clinicians, and team members.
  • Translate customer use case requirements into MCIRCC solution designs, demos, and project proposals
  • Communicate clearly and consult with our multi-disciplinary team of scientists, developers, and clinicians.

  • Willingness to learn and quickly adjust to new tools and systems
  • Capable of converting ambiguous problem statements into concrete project requirements
  • Passion for data-driven results and customer initiatives
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills including the ability to communicate effectively and professionally with colleagues and stakeholders.
  • Ability to understand and explain technical concepts to non-technical stakeholders.
  • Confident teaching and coaching abilities
