-**About us:** We are a [[http://shahlab.stanford.edu/lab_members|group]] of about twenty doctors, engineers, informatics professionals and students focused on enabling better care using existing health data. We develop novel methods to learn from patient-level health data including structured health encounter records, clinical notes, insurance claims, diagnostic imaging, and clinical trial data. A major research thrust is to answer clinical questions that enable better medical decisions using electronic health records (EHRs) and insurance claims data, via a consultation service that uses aggregate patient data at the point of care (https://shahlab.stanford.edu/greenbutton). We also have an active research program to research safe, ethical, and cost-effective strategies for predictive models to guide mitigating care actions (https://shahlab.stanford.edu/paihc). Our research group is part of the Department of Medicine at Stanford.+**About us:** We are a [[http://shahlab.stanford.edu/lab_members|group]] of about twenty doctors, engineers, informatics professionals and students focused on enabling better care using existing health data.

-**About the position:** The primary research focus of this postdoctoral scholar position is flexible, and will involve developing and advancing methods for data-driven bedside decision making, or machine learning for health system-level improvements. An additional operational focus will involve being responsible for our group’s data analysis and compute infrastructure, including managing dataset ingestion and cleaning, database management, and supporting the cloud compute needs of our lab members. The position offers the opportunity to work with leading Stanford faculty in Informatics, Statistics, and Medicine as well as an opportunity to build real-world credibility in DataOps. +**About the position:** The primary research focus of this postdoctoral scholar position is flexible, and will involve developing and advancing methods for data-driven bedside decision making, or machine learning for health system-level improvements.
