The Department of Biostatistics in the School of Public Health (SPH) at the University of Pittsburgh seeks applicants for a faculty position with primary responsibility for the educational mission of the department and the school. The candidates may also have an interest in methodological and collaborative research. The position may be at the assistant or associate professor level (appointment stream), to begin in fall 2023 or earlier. We seek outstanding individuals with a strong commitment to education. Responsibilities for this position will include teaching both graduate-level courses and undergraduate courses, providing leadership within the department and school on the biostatistics curriculum, participating at the national level in biostatistics education forums, and working on collaborative projects in the public health/biomedical field. The department and the SPH highly value education-focused faculty and are committed to their career development and promotion. We are also very committed to enhancing diversity among our faculty and strongly encourage individuals from underrepresented groups to apply.
We seek applicants with a Ph.D. degree or equivalent in biostatistics, statistics, epidemiology, data science, biomedical science, or other related quantitative disciplines. New PhDs and postdoctoral fellows are encouraged to apply. For appointment as an assistant professor, candidates must show evidence of teaching either undergraduate courses or graduate-level courses. For appointment as associate professor, candidates should have extensive teaching experience including new course design and teaching of large enrollment courses. While the current position emphasizes education, we provide flexibility and opportunity for career growth.
