Assistant Professor

Discovery Themes Focus Areas

Translational Data Analytics


We seek an expert in systems-based predictive modeling to join the Data Analytics core and The College of Public Health. Systems-based approaches to predictive modeling move beyond traditional descriptive statistical methods to include knowledge of underlying biological and human systems in development of dynamic analytic models. Such models are then used to predict health outcomes and evaluate policies.



The successful candidate will have experience developing and applying methods based on complexity theory to public health outcomes, such as infant mortality, cancer, and chronic disease. Experts in methods such as modeling systems dynamics, network analysis, stochastic agent-based modeling are particularly encouraged to apply. Qualified applicants will have a PhD in a data analytics-related field, such as Biomathematics/Statistics/Biostatistics, Data Science, Bioinformatics, or Computational Biology. Experience in leading large collaborative research projects and mentoring junior faculty preferred.
