Job Summary

MCIRCC Overview
The U-M Center for Integrative Research in Critical Care (MCIRCC) is one of the world’s first comprehensive research enterprises devoted to transforming critical care medicine by accelerating science and moving it from bench to bedside. To do this, MCIRCC brings together integrative teams comprised of world-class U-M scientists, clinicians, and engineers with industry partners and funding sources to develop and deploy cutting-edge solutions that elevate the care, outcomes, and quality of life of critically ill and injured patients and their families.
MCIRCC Data Analytics Engineer Role Description
Are you wicked smart?  Do outer joins and random forests make you giddy like when you were a kid at the toy store?  Do we ever have a position for you!  Initially we were looking for a postdoctoral person, but we realized there are some brilliant people who would fit into the culture of our team that perhaps had less schooling so we’re opening it up to extraordinary people with at least a bachelor's degree in computer science, mathematics, or a ton of experience in database trickery and machine learning. 
This position offers a unique opportunity in the areas of data science and analytics at the Michigan Center for Integrative Research in Critical Care (MCIRCC), Department of Emergency Medicine, University of Michigan (UM). Research in our center focuses on developing clinical decision support systems and a real time analytics platform for developing and translating advanced data science into critical care. Applicants will be responsible for finding, accessing, pulling, munging, organizing, and staging data from multiple locations and multiple customers. 
Once data has been staged, it will be used to build analytics for diagnostic and predictive decision support systems. This position focuses on the translational aspects of our existing research into the clinical environment as viable products.  You will be working with a highly motivated team to validate and deliver research to the bedside.  Yeah, to actual patients.
We are looking for an ambitious, talented, and self-motivated individual with an interest in leveraging our research. The state of the art research platform being developed by MCIRCC is a hybrid system consisting of several disparate hardware and software components. Therefore, the candidate is expected to be a dynamic problem solver and not afraid of learning new languages and skills in order to get the job done. Candidates must be able to actively develop analytical formulations as needed for the project, and analyze performance of the resulting methods by writing MATLAB or python scripts. They should actively collaborate with the team as well as with other clinical collaborators within the school and also in other institutes, depending on project needs. The candidate will be involved in contributing towards developing manuscripts for publication and needs to present research results within/outside UM. Preferred are candidates who would recognize themselves as ‘Jack of all trades’.

  • Investigate methods and techniques to perform analytics
  • Apply machine learning concepts to solve complex problems
  • Develop statistical reports and insights from data and its derived features
  • Perform rigorous statistical analysis of machine learning model’s performance
  • Provide support in grant and manuscript writing
