Job Description Summary

Personalization in healthcare has been identified as a key growth area for GE Healthcare (GEHC) and Advanced Technology Group will play a key role in developing targeted solutions that meets the goal of Precision Medicine. At GEHC, there are on-going, multi-disciplinary programs in digital and molecular pathology, tissue imaging, diagnostic imaging (MRI, CT, PET, Ultrasound), physiological monitoring (ECG, US, EEG, etc.) and informatics approaches to identify clinically relevant biosignatures. We believe that AI can quickly and more accurately identify signs of disease in medical images, like MRI, CT scans, ultrasound, and x-rays, and therefore allow faster diagnostics and positively impact the patient outcomes. Our teams are leading the AI effort in advancing the care pathway, such as improving the organization of treatment plans, analyzing data to provide better treatment plans, and monitoring treatments. AI will play a central role in this initiative with breakthroughs resulting in image interpretations, identifying imaging biomarkers for many applications including tissue characterization, analyzing physiological data for patient care solutions, and in many instances accelerating the clinical workflow so that healthcare costs are reduced. We are looking to grow our team of Advanced Technology Group at GEHC in Bangalore. We are looking for top notch researchers at all career levels who want to be part of this exciting journey. As a group, we will:Innovate and execute on the R&D strategy around image analytics aligned with the GEHC business initiatives in a broad set of areas (Patient monitoring, MRI, CT, Ultrasound, X-Ray, Cell therapy, Molecular Diagnostics, etc.).Drive cutting edge research in core imaging and signal processing problemsParticipate in strategic collaborations with top universities and pharma/biotechPublish in key conferences and journals, as well as generate core IP.GE HealthCare is a leading global medical technology and digital solutions innovator.
