Can we prevent Alzheimer’s disease or blindness by exploiting and understanding medical data from multiple sources using AI?

The Informatics Institute of the University of Amsterdam (UvA) is hiring an Assistant professor in AI and Health for their qurAI group, an interfaculty group embedded in the Faculties of Medicine (Department of Biomedical Engineering and Physics - BMEP) and Science (Institute of Informatics -IvI) of the University of Amsterdam.

What are you going to do?

You will be expected to work on the development, validation and clinically integration of responsible AI solutions for the analysis of multimodal medical data, with a special focused on medical imaging analysis in combination with omics data. These solutions will help in the diagnosis and management of eye disorders and neurodegenerative diseases. You will be joining a growing and vibrant interfaculty team of colleagues working within IvI and BMEP and together with different clinical departments of the Amsterdam University Medical Centers who are tackling problems related to the development of trustworthy AI solutions to solve data analysis challenges encountered in different steps of the patient pathway, from prevention and triage, through diagnosis and decision making, to care delivery and management.

We strongly encourage applications coming from a unique perspective. Tell us how your background fits with the focus of this position, even if your profile is slightly different from the profile /requirements written below.

You are expected to:

  • contribute to the development of the research group through innovative research and develop your own independent research line;
  • acquire independent funding from sources such as the national funding agency NWO (e.g. VIDI), EU funding via H2020 (e.g. ERC starting grant) and industry;
  • (co-)supervise the group’s postdocs, PhD students and MSc students;
  • contribute to strengthening the curriculum in AI and healthcare of the Bachelor and Master AI and related programmes such as the interfaculty AI for Health track; teaching is approximately 30% of the position’s total time;
  • contribute to outreach, both in terms of engaging with industrial and (inter)national academic partners as well as supporting the group’s activity for the integration of AI solutions in clinical workflow. UvA spinoffs that bring technology to industry and society are highly encouraged.


What do we require of you?

  • A PhD degree in Artificial Intelligence, Computer Science, Engineering or closely related field.
  • A solid publication record in fields related to AI and Health as demonstrated by international peer reviewed publications.
  • Experience in obtaining research funding in a competitive environment.
  • A track record and affinity for teaching and supervision (at the undergraduate and graduate levels), preferably with a certificate of academic teaching quality (e.g. Dutch BKO) or willingness to acquire such a qualification within two years.
  • Experience building AI solutions or developing AI algorithms that address medical challenges.
  • Demonstrated ability to promote outstanding and innovative research and foster research collaborations (with faculty, postdoctoral researchers and PhD candidates).
  • At least two years of postdoctoral experience is expected but not strictly necessary. International research experience is also preferred.


We offer a temporary employment contract for 38 hours per week with a tenure track agreement for the duration of five years (which is part of a six-year temporary contract). You will be offered a permanent position after a positive assessment and evaluation.

The starting salary will be in accordance with university regulations for academic personnel, and depending on experience and qualifications. It will range from a minimum of €3,821 gross per month up to a maximum of €5,943 gross per month (salary scale 11-12) based on full-time employment (38 hours). This is exclusive 8% holiday allowance and 8.3% end-of-year bonus. A favourable tax agreement, the ‘30% ruling’, may apply to non-Dutch applicants. The Collective Labour Agreement of Dutch Universities is applicable.
