About the role

You will play a key role in the success of a collaboration between Centaur Labs and Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH) to develop large-scale labeled datasets of ultrasound clips, as well as state-of-the-art deep learning algorithms trained on those datasets.

You will be employed by Centaur Labs, but you will also have a postdoc appointment with and work closely with researchers at BWH.

Your objectives will include:

  • Creating labeling pipelines and procedures that will produce high-quality, clinically relevant labels for AI development.
  • Development and validation of state-of-the-art deep learning algorithms.
  • Serving as a project manager overseeing work at BWH to de-identify and clip ultrasound videos, and then secure transfer of clips to Centaur Labs for labeling.
  • Conducting IRR analyses on labelers from the Centaur Labs network to identify optimal methods for statistically weighting and combining multiple rater opinions.
  • Manuscript writing and preparation, including work on releasing deep learning algorithms in standardized formats to make them widely accessible to the broader machine learning and healthcare communities.


  • PhD/MD. This is a postdoc position, and applicants must have either an MD or a PhD in data science, computer science, or a degree that involved large scale medical data analysis (e.g., neuroscience, computational biology, etc.).
  • Required skills include SQL, Amazon Web Services (AWS), and deep learning experience with medical image and/or video datasets.

Preferred Skills

  • Experience building computer vision models.
