The Tech Incubation team aspires to stretch and transform the existing boundaries in cancer care at the confluence of tech and health. We function as a pipeline for innovation that supports bold, scientific experimentation with new technologies in a variety of breakthrough domains that helps shape MSKs digital transformation. The team is a multidisciplinary group of designers, engineers and data scientists whose activities range from basic tech research, to proof of concept and design work, to streamlined pilots and evaluations of new technologies in production clinical and business environments.We also reach beyond institutional walls to forge collaborations with academic, startup, and established industry partners to accelerate and augment these activities.
WHAT WILL YOU WORK ON?
As Tech Research Lead, you will report to the Associate Chief Information Officer and will lead efforts to build and manage a small, specialized team to explore emerging technologies that are likely to be important to MSK's digital transformation.In a manner analogous to basic science research, tech research is the exploration of emerging technologies without hypotheses of how they might be applied to operational work. The team consists of the Associate Chief Information Officer, Business Development Lead, the Product and Design Director, the Engineering Manager, and the Data Science Lead.
WHO ARE WE?
We are an experienced multidisciplinary team that covers the full lifecycle of project development, from idea stage all the way to production ready. We operate in a product model where you will work in a team of talented software engineers, as well as data scientists and designers.
