A pre-doctoral research position at the Institute for ArtificialIntelligence and Decision Support at the Medical University of Vienna,
Austria is available immediately.


The past years were marked by outstanding progress in artificial
intelligence (AI) across many application areas. This brings up an
exciting question: Can AI be used to fundamentally change how
biomedical research is conducted and drastically speed up the
generation of novel insights and therapies? To answer this question,
we have started a transdisciplinary research project building a formal
model of AI capabilities, biomedical research processes, datasets and
actors. By combining quantitative analysis with expert judgement, we
strive to identify roadblocks and risks, and to improve the interplay
of AI and human intellect in making important new discoveries.


We seek candidates who are interested in connecting different
scientific disciplines and who are enthusiastic about translating
basic research into action. A track-record of peer-reviewed
publications is a plus. Independence, creativity and a proactive
stance towards solving problems and developing new ideas are welcome.
Candidates should have master’s degree in a relevant discipline, or
should receive their degree soon. We expect the ideal candidate to
have a background in a topically relevant area such as: biomedical
informatics / bioinformatics, AI/machine learning,
biology/medicine/pharmacology with additional machine learning skills,
cognitive science. We are also open to excellent applicants with other
