The African Institute for Mathematics Sciences (NextEinstein Initiative ) is receiving applications for a PhD and Postdoctoral position from qualified individuals.
The Application is on a project called Health and Interventions Monitoring with Artificial Intelligence (HIMAI) Project.
The HIMAI Project seeks to transform the practice of Pharmacovigilance and the diagnosis and control of various diseases with the use of approaches heavily dependent on Machine Learning and AI.
Successful Candidates will be lodged in the AIMS Rwanda Campus, and maybe temporarily collaborate with Wet/Engineering Labs in Rwanda and Elsewhere based on the topic of research.
