The University of New Mexico Health Sciences Library and Informatics Center (UNM HSLIC) invites applications for a three-year research fellowship in Biomedical Informatics (BMI). The fellowship begins in July 2019 and comes with a stipend, health benefits and limited support for research project expenses. This fellowship also provides time and support for the fellow to complete a Master’s Degree in Clinical Research, as well as a certificate program in BMI. Approximately a third of the fellow’s time is allocated for performance of a mentored research project in BMI, culminating in submission of a manuscript to a peer-reviewed journal. The fellowship position also comes with a Visiting Instructor faculty appointment in the UNM HSLIC, through the UNM School of Medicine. This academic appointment enables the fellow to gain experience as a faculty member in a vibrant department in the UNM Health Sciences Center.
The fellow reports to the HSLIC Director of Biomedical Informatics Research, Training and Scholarship, who acts as the fellow’s primary mentor. Soon after starting the fellowship and establishing a research project direction, other UNM faculty will be identified to compose a mentor panel (usually two to three mentors total). The mentor panel provides guidance and expertise in domains outside of BMI but relevant to the fellow’s area of research interest. The mentor panel also provides the opportunity for the fellow to obtain perspectives from several domains of expertise. The fellow meets with the primary mentor weekly and with other mentors as needed. The mentor panel convenes every six months to monitor the fellow’s overall progress. An appointment as Visiting Instructor, non-tenure track is anticipated and salary of approximately $80,000 per year plus benefits, based upon qualifications.
