Assistant, Associate, and Full Professor Positions in Biostatistics
University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine
Location: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Type: Full Time
The Department of Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Informatics at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania seeks candidates for several positions in the Division of Biostatistics at the Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor-level in either the non-tenure clinician educator track or the tenure track. Expertise is required in the specific area of biostatistical methods development and applications, with the ability to establish oneself as a research leader in their area of specialization. Applicants must have a Ph.D. or equivalent degree.
Research or scholarship responsibilities may include statistical methods development and contributions as a statistical leader for collaborative research studies. Candidates with experience in statistical methods for electronic health records, longitudinal data analysis, missing data, imaging statistics, or causal inference, and/or an interest in health disparities and health equity or pediatric research are especially encouraged to apply. We have a special interest in hiring someone interested in cancer and clinical trials. There is a rich mix of ongoing biomedical research programs in the Perelman School of Medicine to provide motivation and opportunities for the development of novel statistical methods on wide-ranging domains of biomedical, clinical, and translational science.
For both tracks, teaching responsibilities may include participation in biostatistics PhD and MS training programs, as well as teaching biostatistics courses in epidemiology, health policy, and other biomedical programs. Candidates are expected to have a strong commitment to teaching and mentoring.
Tenure track applicants will focus primarily on the development of innovative leading-edge statistical methodology, with secondary emphasis on collaborative research projects within the Perelman School of Medicine. For candidates at the Associate or Full Professor-level a demonstrated track record as the principal investigator of methodological research supported by extramural grant funding is required.
Clinician Educator track applicants will focus primarily on collaborative research as co-investigators, with secondary emphasis on methodological research. Applicants who have outstanding productivity in collaborative research, as well as some methodological research, are especially encouraged to apply.
