The Department of Biostatistics at Brown University’s School of Public Health is seeking exceptional candidates doing research in biostatistics and data science as well as in domain research in the health sciences. Candidates for Associate or Full Professor should have a nationally and internationally recognized record of innovative methods research in biostatistics and data science, significant experience and track record in interdisciplinary research, and demonstrated leadership potential. Candidates for Assistant Professor should provide evidence of outstanding research potential, growing publications record and experience in interdisciplinary research. All candidates must show evidence of excellent oral and written communication skills and possess strong ability and interest in teaching and mentoring of students. The Department is committed to pursuing the goals of the Brown initiative for diversity and inclusion. The new faculty member will join a highly interdisciplinary Biostatistics faculty in the Brown University School of Public Health. Building on its methodologic and domain research strength in the analysis of large health care databases, causal inference, diagnostic imaging evaluation and radiomics, computational biology and bioinformatics, Bayesian methodology, research synthesis, and neuroscience, the Department is now emphasizing growth in research and educational activity in health data science. Biostatistics is a core member of the University’s Data Science Initiative. The Department teaches a growing number of students at all levels, undergraduate, Master’s, and PhD and has recently added a health data science track to its Master’s program. The Brown School of Public Health and the broader University offer opportunities for substantial collaboration with world class researchers in the constituent disciplines of data science as well as in a broad range of domains, such as health care and policy research, neuroscience, computational biology, epidemiology, and behavioral sciences. The Department is highly invested in maintaining an inclusive community of faculty and students and embraces diversity along its many dimensions—including race, ethnicity, sex, religion, socio-economic background, sexual orientation, gender identity, physical ability, and other aspects of identity. Brown University is committed to fostering and maintaining a diverse work culture that respects the rights and dignity of each individual, without regard to race, color, national origin, ancestry, religious creed, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, gender expression, height, weight, marital status, disability, medical condition, age, or veteran status.
