Department Overview

The Oregon Center for Aging & Technology (ORCATECH) in the Department of Neurology at Oregon Health & Science University seeks a post-doctoral researcher. ORCATECH uses and develops technologies that can assess everyday home-based activities, providing millions of hours of real-world and real-time activity and health data. 

Function/Duties of Position

We are looking for a post-doctoral researcher with a background in computer, information, or data science, with an interest in stream processing. This will focus on development of algorithms to process data in near-real time as it streams to servers from research participants. This position is anticipated to last 1.5-3 years to allow adequate time for the researcher to integrate with the team, understand the current platform infrastructure and data streams, and contribute to the research.  Position may be hybrid with possibility of becoming remote, with workspace available at OHSU’s main campus in Portland, OR.  Some travel may be required for conference presentations.


The work being done as part of this postdoctoral fellowship will support projects focused on aging in place, spanning from Mexican Americans to cancer survivors, and early detection and monitoring of Alzheimer’s disease.


There will be expectations and opportunities for publishing results and presenting at conferences.

Required Qualifications

  • Ph.D. in Information Sciences,  Computer Science, Data Science or a related field
  • Programming skills in languages such as Python and Go are required
  • Algorithm development experience
  • Experience in disseminating results in academic journals or at academic conferences
