Successful candidates will be expected to undertake an active program of research that leads to publication and/or presentation in peer-reviewed scholarly outlets and, where available, to seek extramural funding for that research. In addition, successful candidates will be expected to teach, advise, and mentor undergraduate and graduate students when appropriate. These positions provide outstanding opportunities for collaborative/interdisciplinary research with the Larner College of Medicine, the UVM Cancer Center, the Vermont Complex Systems Center, the UVM Transportation Research Center, the Vermont Advanced Computing Core, and the Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources.

We are seeking candidates with demonstrated interest and expertise in any area of biostatistics. The successful candidate will have strong training, ability to maintain an excellent research program, interest in undertaking collaborative research with other groups at UVM, and potential to secure extramural funding. The ability to teach a variety of undergraduate and graduate statistics courses, and the potential to supervise graduate students, is required. A competitive startup package is available.

Assistant Professor of Statistics (tenure track, 9-month appointment)

Candidates are required to have a doctorate in biostatistics, epidemiology or a related discipline, and a research focus on infectious diseases of global significance.

S/he will collaborate with other COBRE faculty members and trainees, devote significant effort toward a research project/program within the COBRE, and participate in COBRE opportunities designed to accelerate the candidate’s research career (e.g., research symposia, mentoring, and career development activities). The COBRE efforts include 3-months of dedicated Summer Research effort for the first 3 years of the appointment.
