The Department of Biostatistics at Brown University School of Public Health is seeking exceptional candidates with demonstrated commitment to statistical and health data science education and research for a new faculty position on the Teaching Scholar track. This appointment will be made at the level of Assistant Professor on a renewable term basis.
