The Department of Biostatistics in the UCLA Jonathan and Karin Fielding School of Public Health (http://www.biostat.ucla.edu) is searching for an Assistant or Associate Professor in Residence of Biostatistics. Titles in the In-Residence series, which confer membership in the UCLA Academic Senate, are assigned to individuals who engage in research and teaching to the same extent as those holding corresponding titles in the regular Professor series at UCLA. Accordingly, we seek a candidate with a strong track record and/or evidence of outstanding potential for methodological research, teaching at the graduate level, and obtaining external funding. Given accompanying professional opportunities through the Nathanson Family Resilience Center in the UCLA Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior, background and experience in interdisciplinary research involving military veterans and members of their families, including community-partnered research and analysis of health-services databases, would be highly desirable.
The Fielding School of Public Health is located on the main UCLA campus in direct proximity to the other health sciences schools (Medicine, Dentistry, and Nursing), several professional schools, and the College of Letters and Science. The UCLA Department of Biostatistics has a strong history of and commitment to interdisciplinary research and collaboration.
Candidates should hold a Ph.D. or equivalent in statistics or biostatistics, should show evidence of excellence or outstanding potential in teaching and training of doctoral students, should have a strong record of peer-reviewed publications, and should have a demonstrated commitment to applications in the health sciences. Faculty appointment level and salary will be commensurate with the candidate’s experience and qualifications.
All qualified applicants are encouraged to apply online. Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, the names of three individuals willing to provide a letter of reference, a statement of research interests including a summary of previous research work and its significance, a teaching statement, and a diversity statement addressing past and or potential contributions to diversity through research, teaching and/or service.
