University of Minnesota School of Public Health-
Division of Biostatistics

Associate/Full Professor of Biostatistics

The Division of Biostatistics, School of Public Health, at the University
of Minnesota announces an opening for a tenured or tenure-track faculty
position at the Professor or Associate Professor level.

We are interested in individuals who have a strong record of
methodological research and who have experience advising PhD students.
Emphasis will be placed on the quality of the candidate's research and
teaching record and the ability to make an immediate impact on our PhD
program through teaching advanced courses and advising.  The successful
candidate will be expected to take an active part in research with other
investigators in the School of Public Health, the Medical School, and
other units of the University.

Applications received before January 6, 2003, will be considered for a
first round of interviews, and applications will continue to be accepted
thereafter until the position is filled.

The Division of Biostatistics currently includes 18 graduate faculty and
87 staff.  The Division offers MS, MPH, and PhD degrees, and interacts in
teaching and advising with the strong U of Minnesota School of Statistics.
At the present time, we enroll 64 graduate students (49 MS and 15 PhD).
Current faculty research in statistical methodology includes analysis of
spatial and longitudinal data, Bayes and empirical Bayes methods,
computer-intensive methods such as Markov chain Monte Carlo, survival
analysis, clinical trials design, genomics, generalized linear models, and
categorical data analysis.

The Division has an international reputation as the home of the
statistical coordinating centers for a number of clinical trials in
AIDS/HIV, lung disease, and cardiovascular disease.  Other major research
areas of applied research within the Division include cancer prevention
and treatment, dental research, environmental and occupational health,
health policy, chronic care and smoking prevention. Multi-year grants and
contracts for various Divisional projects total over $75 M.

Division faculty are also active participants in a University-wide
community of researchers working at the frontiers of molecular biology in
the recently established Biomedical Genomics Center and Bioinformatics
Graduate Faculty.  The University has state of the art technology for
genetics (genotyping and sequence analysis), genomics (laser capture
micro-dissection, custom microarray printing, and microarray scanning) and
proteomics (a DIGE system and MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry).  This
atmosphere provides an outstanding opportunity to develop novel approaches
to cutting edge problems in genomics and proteomics.

The salary range for this faculty position will be competitive, and the
University of Minnesota offers excellent fringe benefits.
