Additional Details: The Emory University Department of Biomedical Informatics is recruiting for a post doctorate in the areas of human-AI interaction and health equity. We will consider candidates with strong qualitative and design skills, or experience with fairness, bias, and explainability in machine learning and natural language processing. Prior experience with statistical analysis is preferred. Additionally, prior experience with technology design for care work and maternal and child care, or on the design of conversational agents and predictive tools is highly valued. Working in an interdisciplinary team of researchers, practitioners, and PhD students, this position represents an opportunity to advance an academic career with strong mentorship and collaboration across schools and units.
