The Department of Community Health Sciences invites applications for 2 full-time academic positions at the Assistant Professor level, for a biostatistician. These positions offer excellent opportunities to develop independent research programs with collaborative interactions in a multidisciplinary research environment of the Department of Community Health Sciences, the Calgary Institute for Population and Public Health, and the broader Faculty of Medicine including its other research institutes.
Duties will include graduate teaching, supervising graduate students, and teaching in continuous professional development courses offered to the local health care community, with up to 50-75% of time protected for research. The successful candidates will be expected to apply and be successful at national grant agencies such as Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR).
Candidates should have a PhD in Biostatistics or Statistics with evidence of strong methodological and analysis skills applied in clinical/population/public health research. Candidates with strong records of collaboration with researchers in Epidemiology and other health related disciplines are encouraged to apply. Particular expertise or experience in clinical neuroscience and design/analysis of clinical trial data would be expected for one of the successful candidates. Good teaching and communication skills are essential. Current faculty in biostatistics have research interests in epidemiologic risk assessment, statistical computing, longitudinal data analysis, network analysis, and survival analysis. The successful candidates will benefit from the growing research activity in biostatistics at the UofC, and the strong Faculty of Medicine support for the Calgary Institute for Public and Population Health. One candidate will work closely with the researchers from the Hotchkiss Brain Institute, a particular focus for the Faculty of Medicine and the University of Calgary.
The Department of Community Health Sciences is part of the rapidly growing Faculty of Medicine. Calgary is a vibrant, multicultural city (population ~1,000,000) near the Rocky Mountains, Banff National Park and Lake Louise.
