  • Healthcare-focused Research and Development: Conduct research and exploration of generative AI techniques, with a specific emphasis on healthcare applications. Stay up to date with the latest advancements in the field and adapt them to address healthcare-specific challenges, such as medical image generation, drug discovery, patient data analysis, or personalized medicine.
  • Model Design and Development: Design and implement generative AI models tailored for healthcare scenarios. Develop models that can generate realistic and high-quality medical images, synthetic patient data, or generate text-based medical reports
  • Experimentation and Evaluation: Design and execute experiments to evaluate the performance and effectiveness of generative AI models in healthcare settings. Develop appropriate evaluation metrics that align with healthcare outcomes and clinical requirements. Collaborate with domain experts, clinicians, and researchers to validate and refine the models' outputs.
  • Collaborative Teamwork: Collaborate closely with cross-functional teams, including healthcare professionals, data scientists, software engineers, and product managers. Leverage their expertise to guide your research, gain insights into real-world healthcare challenges, and translate your findings into practical solutions.
  • Prototyping and Implementation: Develop prototypes and proof-of-concept implementations of generative AI solutions for healthcare. Work closely with engineering teams to integrate your models into healthcare platforms, systems, or applications. Ensure scalability, efficiency, and robustness of the deployed solutions.
  • Regulatory Compliance and Ethical Considerations: Stay up to date with healthcare regulations, privacy laws, and ethical considerations relevant to the development and deployment of AI in healthcare. Ensure compliance with HIPAA, GDPR, and other applicable standards throughout the development process.
  • Continuous Learning and Industry Engagement: Stay actively involved in the healthcare and AI research communities. Attend relevant conferences, workshops, and seminars. Publish research findings in reputable scientific venues. Collaborate with academic and industry partners to advance the state-of-the-art in generative AI for healthcare.


  • Ph.D. or Master's degree in Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence, Biomedical Engineering, or a related field. A strong academic background with a focus on generative AI and healthcare applications is highly preferred.
  • Extensive experience in developing and implementing generative AI models, such as GANs, VAEs, and related architectures.
  • Proficiency in programming languages commonly used in AI research, such as Python and TensorFlow/PyTorch. Experience with healthcare-specific frameworks (e.g., DICOM, FHIR) is a plus.
  • Solid knowledge of machine learning concepts, including deep learning, optimization algorithms, regularization techniques, and model
  • Bias-to-action, appetite for high-risk high-gain projects with a pragmatic approach to rapid and measurable progress
  • Strong track record in publications, patents, and/or launched products in this space


  • Experience working with sensitive healthcare data, medical imaging modalities, clinical workflows, and healthcare terminology. Familiarity with electronic health records (EHRs) and medical imaging formats (e.g., DICOM) is advantageous.
  • Experience in late-stage startup environment
  • Experience building and bringing practical use, knowledge graphs and graph-based machine learning models
  • Expertise with embedding, multimodal fusion

Voluntary Self-Identification

For government reporting purposes, we ask candidates to respond to the below self-identification survey. Completion of the form is entirely voluntary. Whatever your decision, it will not be considered in the hiring process or thereafter. Any information that you do provide will be recorded and maintained in a confidential file.

As set forth in Tempus’s Equal Employment Opportunity policy, we do not discriminate on the basis of any protected group status under any applicable law.

Race & Ethnicity Definitions

If you believe you belong to any of the categories of protected veterans listed below, please indicate by making the appropriate selection. As a government contractor subject to the Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act (VEVRAA), we request this information in order to measure the effectiveness of the outreach and positive recruitment efforts we undertake pursuant to VEVRAA. Classification of protected categories is as follows:

A "disabled veteran" is one of the following: a veteran of the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service who is entitled to compensation (or who but for the receipt of military retired pay would be entitled to compensation) under laws administered by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs; or a person who was discharged or released from active duty because of a service-connected disability.

A "recently separated veteran" means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the date of such veteran's discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.

An "active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran" means a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.

An "Armed forces service medal veteran" means a veteran who, while serving on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service, participated in a United States military operation for which an Armed Forces service medal was awarded pursuant to Executive Order 12985.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Form CC-305
Page 1 of 1
OMB Control Number 1250-0005
Expires 04/30/2026

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor. The law requires us to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We have a goal of having at least 7% of our workers as people with disabilities. The law says we must measure our progress towards this goal. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had one. People can become disabled, so we need to ask this question at least every five years.

Completing this form is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer is confidential. No one who makes hiring decisions will see it. Your decision to complete the form and your answer will not harm you in any way.
