Assistant or Associate Professor of Clinical Preventive Medicine (Biostatistics)

Department of Preventive Medicine Faculty Los Angeles, California

The University of Southern California (USC), founded in 1880, is the largest private employer in the City of Los Angeles. As an employee of USC, you will be a part of a world-class research university and a member of the "Trojan Family," which is comprised of the faculty, students and staff that make the university what it is.

The Department of Preventive Medicine of the Keck School of Medicine of USC is seeking an experienced biostatistician with an interest in a full-time faculty position in biostatistics education and consulting.  The position of Assistant or Associate Professor of Clinical Preventive Medicine  is on the non-tenure clinical track and will be at a rank appropriate for the experience of the faculty member. The department teaches a broad array of courses in biostatistics at levels ranging from undergraduates to advanced graduate students. Areas of focus for teaching include general biostatistical methods, data analysis with focus on both simple and multivariate models, application of biostatistical methods to complex data sets using a variety of software programs (e.g. SAS, Stata, SPSS, R), and probability and statistical theory.  Teaching responsibilities would focus on courses in our graduate program in biostatistics (teaching at the master’s and Ph.D. level), but could also include data-analysis courses within our MPH and undergraduate programs.  There are opportunities to develop new classes in areas related to biostatistical methods or applications.  The Biostatistics division also provides core biostatistical consulting and collaborative services for the USC Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (SC-CTSI).   Biostatistics consulting primarily occurs with clinician investigators in USC schools of medicine, pharmacy, allied health sciences, social work, and gerontology.  Consultations involve study planning as well as analyses of existing data.  Consulting activities frequently lead to longer-term biostatistics collaborations with additional grant funding.    The faculty effort profile will initially comprise approximately 50% each in teaching and consulting.    

Candidates should have a doctoral degree in biostatistics or a related field and teaching experience in one or more academic training programs.  Candidates should also have research and consulting experience, particularly involving the application of biostatistical methods to the analysis of data from a health-related field.

Apply here and upload  curriculum vita, a brief summary of teaching and research experience, and names and contact information for three individuals who are familiar with your academic accomplishments.
