OHPEN Lab: Optimization of Health ProcEsses and Networks Laboratory

OHPEN is directed by You Chen, PhD, Assistant Professor. The lab focuses on methods to learn workflows, health processes, and models the organizational structure (e.g., via social network analysis) of complex health systems. Based on these strategies, the lab will investigate how best to help healthcare organziaitons to optimize practices and allocate resources to improve care quality of patiets and minimize their healthcare costs.


Post-doc positions available

Job Description:The target project for these positions is the development of data mining and machine learning algorithms to derive enhanced predictive models and actionable knowledge from electronic health record data. The postdocs would explore different data sources, and then design methods to learn variations of health processes or organizational structures across disparate sources.

Requirements: Candidates should have a recent PhD degree in a computer science-oriented field and should have sufficient experience in machine learning, large-scale data analysis or statistics. He/she should have discipline and high motivation to pursue independent research in biomedical informatics.

How to Apply: To apply, send a CV, a research statement and three reference letters to you.chen@vanderbilt.edu
