Position Descriptions


The Department of Biostatistics and Computational Biology (DBCB) at the University of Rochester invites applications for an open rank tenure-track position. The successful candidate will be expected to have developed an active program in methodological research, contribute to our Ph.D. program through teaching and advising graduate students, and have a major role in collaborative research with the Department of Neurology and the Center for Human Experimental Therapeutics (CHET). A key component of this position will involve working with investigators throughout North America in the design and analysis of high profile clinical trials in neurological disorders; we are especially interested in applicants that have a track record of relevant methodological and collaborative clinical research, particularly in the area of early phase clinical trials.

DBCB, Neurology and CHET have a long-standing collaborative relationship with each other; faculty play leadership roles in national and international groups conducting multi-center clinical trials and epidemiological studies in Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease, and other neurologic disorders. Opportunities to interact with other internationally renowned, well-funded research groups, such as the Heart Research Follow-up Program, are available.
