Nature of Work

The Department of Biomedical Informatics is the academic home for approximately 30 tenure-track faculty who use approaches of genome-scale biology, multiscale modeling, mathematical physiology, simulation, machine learning, knowledge engineering, human-computer interaction, data integration, or mathematical and predictive analytics to marry disparate but related aspects of the campus’s clinical and research portfolios to advance knowledge and improve healthcare. The department’s faculty are committed to creating inclusive research environments and deploying algorithms that advance equity and reduce health care disparities. The department has established promotion and tenure expectations that recognize real-world impact through multiple paths including the development of new technologies, informatics operations requiring independent intellectual contributions, and publication of original research.

The Department of Biomedical Informatics seeks new faculty members who will strengthen the department by complementing the research, teaching, and service efforts of existing faculty. We view complementary faculty as those who bring distinct methodological strategies to bear on common problems or who share methodological commonalities but who tackle distinct questions.

The Anschutz Medical Campus includes a vibrant and entrepreneurial basic research community with multiple areas of excellence and translational impact. There are many opportunities on campus to translate data-intensive research advances into improved care. The Department of Biomedical Informatics is collocated on the Anschutz Medical Campus with the UC Health University of Colorado Hospital, Children’s Hospital Colorado, and the Rocky Mountain Regional VA Medical Center. The Anschutz Campus is home to Colorado’s only Comprehensive Cancer Center and the Colorado Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute. The Colorado Center for Personalized Medicine houses the region’s largest Biobank. The campus has invested significantly in an enterprise health data warehouse collecting electronic health record data from 15 hospitals and dozens of clinics for research. This warehouse integrates electronic health record data for 1.7 million active patients from 12-member hospitals, more than 800 clinics, and state public health databases for research.
