Multiple tenure-track faculty positions in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics.

The Indiana University School of Public Health‐Bloomington (SPH‐B) invites applications for multiple tenure-track faculty positions 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. The 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.
Responsibilities: Tenure track faculty in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics are expected to substantially contribute to the overall academic excellence of the department by developing and/or maintaining a robust research portfolio including pursuing and obtaining major extramural research funding to conduct cutting-edge research in modern public health science both as a corresponding principal investigator and a collaborating investigator; teaching and mentoring students at the undergraduate and/or graduate level as designated by the department chairperson; and actively providing service internally to the department, school and university and externally to the profession and/or the community. Areas of special interest include, but are not limited to:
• Randomized clinical trials and multi-site observational cohorts
• Computational methods to address complex problems in infectious disease, nutrition, obesity, and related health outcomes
• Social, structural, and economic influences of infectious disease 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.

Qualifications: 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.
