Open Faculty Positions

The Department has two faculty positions for which we are actively recruiting - both in Biostatistics.

Associate or Full Professor rank and open track (Tenure or non-Tenure) faculty position in Biostatistics. Rank and tenure status will be determined based on applicant's background and expertise.

We are looking for expertise that complements our current areas of departmental research (statistical genomics, complex longitudinal statistical modeling, modeling of health impact of environmental and behavioral factors, correlated data analysis, big data analytics, clinical trials, and causal inference). Expertise in and ability to work with multidisciplinary research teams is expected. Candidates should have a strong record of research in biostatistics in one or more of: investigator-initiated studies, company-sponsored trials, collaborative group studies, and content knowledge of trial design from the regulatory, biological/clinical/behavioral, and statistical perspective. Examples of specific diseases or health issues of interest include: cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, health disparities, infectious disease, neurodegeneration, and obesity. A PhD or equivalent degree in biostatistics or a relevant quantitative discipline is required.

Preference will be given to candidates with experience in and/or interest in a faculty leadership role as Director of the Master’s program in Biostatistics.  Candidates with established external funding and a strong record of publications reflecting independent and/or collaborative research programs, especially those who could advance/collaborate with existing departmental and institutional research are preferred. The successful candidate will be expected to establish a track record of extramurally-funded research as Principal Investigator and/or as a collaborator.
