Microsoft Research’s Health Futures is hiring a Senior Researcher in Redmond, WA.

We aspire to advance AI toward developing health systems that can instantly incorporate any new information to optimize delivery and accelerate discovery.

A key bottleneck is that current health systems are mired in overwhelming unstructured data and non-scalable manual processing. Recent advances in generative AI, such as large language models (LLMs), offer unprecedented “universal structuring” capabilities that can supercharge health information processing and unlock many high-value applications in real-world evidence and precision health.

Health Futures is an interdisciplinary team of scientists, engineers, and medical practitioners who endeavor to develop next-generation AI for precision healthcare. We offer a unique vibrant environment that features cutting-edge academic research, enterprise software development, and real-world delivery, with close feedback loops and rapid iterations among all three, much like a lean startup.

We are looking for an innovative, collaborative researcher to join our efforts at the intersection of AI and healthcare, where we partner with premier medical centers and develop state-of-the-art deep learning, natural language processing (NLP), and multi-modal technologies to extract knowledge from tens of millions of research publications, distill patient information from hundreds of millions of electronic health records (EHRs), and assimilate them with billions of genomics data points to support biomedical research and clinical decision making (see:


In this role you will collaborate with a team of leading scientists, engineers, and biomedical practitioners to:

  • Conduct analyses using multimodal real-world data (RWD) sources such as electronic health records, medical imaging, and multi-omics to explore opportunities for modeling.
  • Collaborate with cross-functional teams to design and implement state-of-the-art systems by considering medical factors and responsible AI principles.
  • Communicate findings to internal and external stakeholders, as well as the broader community through blogposts and publications in reputable academic venues
  • Contribute to an evolving team with a growth mindset, creating clarity and influencing the team direction.
  • Propose novel approaches for unsolved research problems.
