The Departments of Biomedical Informatics and Pathology at Stony Brook Medicine have launched a new 12 month fellowship training opportunity in multi-scale imaging, ranging from H&E histology to super-resolution 3D microscopy, of human tissue and cytologic specimens. Training will be provided in quantitative approaches to tissue, cellular and subcellular morphometry, with the underlying aims of developing methods to 1) enhance diagnostic precision in the classification of potentially premalignant and malignant pathology specimens and 2) provide crucial Anatomic Pathology input into integrative translational Cancer research studies that leverage “omics”, Anatomic Pathology and Radiology imaging modalities to better target treatment. In addition, the successful applicant will have the opportunity to participate in a broader set of Pathology Informatics related activities including deployment and testing of natural language processing systems to extract Pathology information from textual Pathology reports and broader Pathology related data analytics efforts. The Pathology Informatics Fellow will have publication opportunities related to their mentored research in these areas. Required qualifications include completion of residency training in Anatomic Pathology and interest in pursuing an academic career in Pathology Biomedical Informatics and Imaging.
The position will be available in early 2015 but could be held until July 2015, to allow completion of current residency or fellowship training obligations.
