Johns Hopkins University's Whitaker Biomedical Engineering Institute

Faculty Position in Statistical Genomics

The Johns Hopkins University's Whitaker Biomedical Engineering Institute seeks highly qualified candidates for a faculty position in APPLIED MATHEMATICAL STATISTICS with concomitant expertise in BIOLOGY. In particular, we desire candidates with expertise in multivariate and time series analyses, and applications of this expertise to the study of complex biological data sets. These candidates would join the Center for Computational Medicine and Biology in the Whitaker Biomedical Engineering Institute at Johns Hopkins. This newly formed Institute provides a highly interactive environment in which multidisciplinary teams of engineers, scientists, computer scientists, and mathematicians will address biomedical problems of fundamental importance. The Institute builds on the internationally recognized research programs based in the School of Medicine and the Whiting School of Engineering, including the Department of Biomedical Engineering. New faculty will be based in Clark Hall, an Institute facility nearing completion on the Homewood Campus of Johns Hopkins. Faculty hired for this position will have their primary, tenure-track/tenured appointment in the Department of Mathematical Sciences of the Whiting School of Engineering. Successful applicants must be able to establish independently funded research programs, and will participate in graduate and undergraduate education. For more information on the Institute and the Johns Hopkins University, see www.bme.jhu.edu. In order to ensure full consideration, applications should be received no later than March 1, 2001.

Interested applicants should send their curriculum vitae and names of three referees to:
