The Division of Biostatistics, School of Public Health, at the University of Minnesota is seeking applicants for a non-tenure track (contract) faculty position at the rank of Assistant Professor, who will be a member of the Analytics Core of the Masonic Institute for the Developing Brain (MIDB).
The School of Public Health (SPH) is committed to anti-racism and anti-oppression and welcomes you to join us in our pursuit of buidling equity and driving justice. We particularly encourage applications from those who belong to groups that have been historically underrepresented in our School, including those who are Black, Indigenous, and people of color, those with disabilities, veterans, and those from LGBTQIA+ communities.
Applicants must have a PhD in biostatistics, statistics, or a closely related field with expertise in bioinformatics and computational biology. Research or scholarship responsibilities may include work with a team of statisticians and computational researchers at the MIDB Analytics Core to develop novel algorithms and machine learning methods for large-scale imaging/genomic data integration and analysis, and lead or facilitate the implementation of these new methods into scalable cloud-based computer programs, databases, and web portals. Other responsibilities include participating in collaborative and independent research programs related to neurobehavioral development and mental health, participating in the Division’s graduate program through teaching and advising, and serving on division and school level committees.
We are strongly committed to recruiting, mentoring, and retaining faculty with a diversity of experiences and support the advancement of the School of Public Health’s Strategic Plan for Antiracism (https://www.sph.umn.edu/about/diversity-inclusion/strategy-planning/). We recognize that scholars from historically disadvantaged groups may not have had the same access to opportunities and may have faced substantial barriers on their academic journey, and hence we are committed to carrying out a holistic evaluation of all applicants for the position.
The salary range for these positions will be very competitive, and the University of Minnesota offers excellent fringe benefits.
