Faculty Positions in Biostatistics


The newly-formed Biostatistics Section of the Program in Public Health invites applications for two new faculty positions, one senior (Associate or Full Professor, tenured) and one junior (Assistant Professor, tenure track), to start as early as 1 June 2005. 


Applications are invited from outstanding candidates, especially those in dynamic new areas such as statistical methods in genomics, proteomics, and genetics. Candidates for the senior (associate or full professor) position should have a nationally and internationally recognized research record in biostatistics and significant experience in interdisciplinary research. Candidates for the junior (assistant professor) position should provide evidence of outstanding research potential and should, preferably, have postdoctoral training. All candidates should show evidence of excellent oral and written communication skills and should have strong ability and interest in teaching and mentoring of students.


The new faculty members will join a highly interdisciplinary Biostatistics faculty of eight and will play an integral role in the ongoing expansion of biostatistics research and education at Brown.  The addition of these positions is part of Brown’s Plan for Academic Enrichment, which calls for focused growth in key areas of the University, including a major expansion in Public Health.  The planned expansion in Public Health builds upon highly active research in diverse areas, and calls for the formation of Sections in Biostatistics, Epidemiology, Health Services and Policy,  and Social and Behavioral Sciences.  The existing Masters and Doctoral programs as well as the MPH program will also be expanded.  The University-wide Plan for Academic Enrichment envisions significant investment in new interdisciplinary programs, including programs in genomics & proteomics, computational biology, environmental change, and spatial structures in the social sciences.  Full details can be found at
