Biomedical Informatics: Educational and employment opportunities

Biomedical Informatics accelerates scientific discovery and improves patient care by converting data into actionable information and knowledge. Pharmacologists and biologists use informatics to understand how drugs and cells interact at a molecular level; scientists use informatics to determine what kind of patients may benefit most from a clinical trial; clinicians use informatics to individualize therapies for patients. 

Division of medical informatics which provides Frontiers informatics infrastructure.  We have the following positions open:

  • Medical Informatics Open Rank Professor (contact Russ Waitman)

Center for Health Informatics (KU-CHI) empowers students, faculty and clinicians in the areas of biomedical science, nursing, and information technology.  KU-CHI provides the knowledge, integration and research necessary to advance the field of health informatics.  

Center for Telemedicine and Telehealth (KUCTT) The KUCTT facilitates clinical telemedicine services and health education services across the state of Kansas, primarily via high definition (HD), interactive videoconferencing (IVC) tools.  These technologies are placed in many community hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, schools and KU Area Health Education Centers (AHECs) in Kansas, and KUCTT maintains relationships with many of the patients, staff, clinicians and researchers in these communities. 

Center for Bioinformatics at the University of Kansas conducts life sciences research, develops computational modeling tools, and provides graduate education in bioinformatics, especially the area of protein modelling.

Department of Biomedical and Health Informatics at the University of Missouri-Kansas City offers a Master of Science in Bioinformatics with emphasis areas in Clinical Research, Computational Bioinformatics, and Genomic Bioinformatics. The Department also offers a graduate certificate in clinical research.

If you practice at the University of Kansas Hospital, access O2 resources.
