We provide education in clinical and behavioral informatics through graduate courses in the BU School of Medicine’s Division of Graduate Medical Sciences, and through a two-year postdoctoral fellowship program in medical informatics.


GMS MS 706 – Introduction to Computer Applications in Health Care and Biomedicine

Medical Informatics Fellowship Program

We have an opening for one new postdoctoral researcher every summer, for a two-year fellowship in medical informatics. The qualifications for this position are a PhD, MD or other doctoral degree in medicine or a research area related to behavioral informatics or computer science (especially computational linguistics or speech processing). Medical knowledge is a plus, but is not required. U.S. citizenship or a green card is required.

This postdoctoral position is funded by the National Library of Medicine through their Medical Informatics Fellowship program. In addition to a stipend (based on number of years of postdoctoral experience) and health insurance allowance, the NLM provides a
generous tuition allowance, and candidates are expected to continue their education during their two-year tenure, with educational opportunities in medical informatics, medicine, public health, or technical curricula offered through BU and other Boston-area

Interested candidates should send a statement of interest, a curriculum vitae and three letters of reference.
