The candidate must have: (i) a PhD in biostatistics, statistics, or a related field, (ii) demonstrated expertise in statistical methods, (iii) demonstrated history of successful collaboration and consultation, (iv) a track record of peer-reviewed scholarly publications, and (v) excellent oral and written skills. Candidates whose research interests complement the main research areas of the Division are particularly encouraged to apply.

The Division has more than 50 PhD or MD research scientists who lead well-developed programs in health care delivery and policy, behavioral health and aging, cancer, cardiovascular and metabolic diseases, infectious diseases, and women’s and children’s health. DOR investigators are primarily supported by grant and contract funding from federal and other external sources, including the National Institutes of Health.
