Why Mayo Clinic
Diversity and inclusion are integral to Mayo Clinic's mission to provide excellent, culturally relevant care in a welcoming environment to patients from a wide variety of backgrounds and creating an inclusive work environment where differences are valued, allowing individuals to achieve and contribute to their fullest potential. This commitment to diversity is woven into the fabric of Mayo Clinic — we embrace these values as we serve our patients, employees, students, suppliers and communities.
The Artificial Intelligence Innovation and Enable team within the Center for Digital Health at Mayo Clinic is looking for Senior Translational Informatics Analysts. We are building a team of about 20 talented data science and implementation analysts to develop and implement AI models into production use and will serve as a central resource to support or supplement areas on their AI projects. These could be in analytics, finance, clinical care or other domains across the Mayo Clinic enterprise.
Senior Translational Informatics develop methods to optimize the transformation of increasingly voluminous biomedical data into informatics solutions aligned with clinical practice or business needs. They are experts in the informatics methods used to analyze and translate data into consumable information and knowledge and have deep knowledge of healthcare data types, topics, approaches, and scientific challenges. You will work with subject matter experts and data scientists, software developers, and knowledge engineers to architect translational solutions that derive and represent the knowledge useful to customers. This requires you to have a deep understanding of the ways in which information (i.e. meaningful data) is converted into knowledge.
As AI evolves and new methods of deriving knowledge are discovered, you will need to identify and develop solutions for new knowledge representations, algorithms and methods that are understandable in clinical practice. This requires a mastery of architecting newly derived knowledge into workflows and will involve designing or redesigning software applications to optimize understanding, utilization, data management, and analysis as required. You will be expected to evaluate the effectiveness of these algorithms in production use and optimize these processes to ensure successful adoption.
You will study and develop models to translate clinical data, information and knowledge for use by data scientists in complex analytics and algorithms. You will be an expert in the informatics methods used to analyze data and have a deep knowledge of healthcare data types, topics, approaches, and scientific challenges.
This role requires deep knowledge of data governance principles and best practices, including nomenclature, provenance/pedigree, and data structures. Applies best practices in cataloging and indexing of datasets and algorithms. Takes leadership in development of policy for managing derived data.
This is a full-time telework role.
A Bachelor’s degree in a relevant field such as bioinformatics, clinical informatics, biomedical engineering, computer science, health science Nursing, Pharmacy, and other medical sciences with at least 12 graduate level semester hours in clinical or bioinformatics or seven years or more of translational informatics experience. The preferred candidate will possess a PhD or Master’s degree with one year experience in a relevant field such as bioinformatics, clinical informatics, biomedical engineering, computer science, health science, or other analytical/quantitative field and a minimum of one year of professional or research experience in data. The successful candidate will need to have both technical and business background/experience along with strong leadership skills. Good written and oral communication skills are required. Expertise in the use of scientific computing and data management packages. Ability to prioritize, organize, and delegate various tasks on projects. Demonstrated initiative in administration, education (seminars, training), software development, and technical reports. Demonstrated success in project management and communication skills. Develop and optimize complex environments for implementing translational solutions, with respect to the socio-economical, behavioral, and ethical considerations. Drives development of technical ecosystems to effectively leverage the data, identity and integration platforms to enable translation of health IT solutions into the practice. Core competencies in use the underlying technologies of networking, security, and cloud computing.
Draws upon the social, cognitive and behavioral sciences to inform the design and evaluation of informatics solutions. Proficient in human factors design principles and how to apply to clinical informatics.
