The Indiana University School of Public Health‐Bloomington (SPH‐B) invites applications for multiple tenure-track faculty position in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics. This is an open-rank search and applicants at all levels (assistant, associate, or full professors) are welcome. SPH-B seeks individuals who will contribute scientific excellence through rigorous research and teaching in epidemiological and/or biostatistical methods, public health policy and practice, and through community engagement to build the evidence base to responsibly promote health in the populations they serve. These 10‐month appointments would ideally start August 1, 2022, although an earlier or later start date is negotiable. Applications received by February 1, 2022, will receive full consideration, and applications will be accepted until the positions are filled.
Tenure track faculty in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics are expected substantially contribute to the overall academic excellence of the department by fostering and maintaining a robust research portfolio; pursuing and managing extramural research funding and support; teaching and mentoring students at the undergraduate and/or graduate level as designated by the department chairperson; and actively participating in the overall research and teaching mission of the department, school, and university. Areas of special interest include, but are not limited to: computational methods to address complex problems in infectious disease, nutrition, obesity, and related health outcomes; social, structural, and economic influences of HIV risk; statistical genetics and genetic epidemiology, genome wide and epigenome-related association studies, and modeling high-dimensional data; research in addiction and physical activity, and cancer and cardiovascular epidemiology; comparative effectiveness, causal inference, and rigor and reproducibility. All research areas related to health will be considered, with preference given to research that is collaborative, synergistic with other SPH-B and Indiana University faculty and aligns with major funding priorities. These positions are located on the campus of Indiana University, Bloomington (IUB) in Bloomington, Indiana, and successful candidates are expected to work on the IUB campus to allow full engagement with the department, school, campus, and community.
Candidates must hold a doctoral degree in epidemiology, biostatistics or a closely related field from an accredited educational institution. A firm commitment to the role of diversity in all aspects of research, education and service is essential. Candidates must have teaching experience at the graduate or professional level. Good interpersonal skills, effective communication skills, and the ability to work cooperatively and congenially within a diverse faculty are required. Leadership skills and vision for enhancing the academic components of an interdisciplinary department are essential. Candidates for associate and full professor positions must also demonstrate a record of scholarly achievement appropriate for a senior career level, including extramurally funded research as a corresponding principal investigator, current funding or strong potential to secure external funding, and experience leading sizeable research initiatives.
