Position Summary

The Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics invites applications for tenure system or tenured positions (Assistant, Associate, Full Professor) in the area of neuroepidemiology. Multiple tenure system appointments are now available with competitive salaries and generous start-up packages that are supported by state general funds (i.e., 'hard-funded'). Successful candidate(s) will have demonstrated scholarship in population-level cognitive health during aging, and/or the epidemiology of age-related neurodegenerative disorders (e.g., Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, vascular dementia). Given the multifactorial nature of most neurodegenerative disorders of aging, scholars from diverse but complementary scientific backgrounds (e.g., biostatistics, clinical scientists, genomics and other -omics, psychology, neuroimaging) are strongly encouraged to apply. Successful candidates will be expected to develop extramurally funded research programs on neurodegenerative conditions, teach epidemiology, biostatistics and/or related courses in their respective areas of expertise, as well as provide mentorship to trainees.

MSU faculty have a national/international reputation in research related to age-related cognitive decline, Alzheimer's disease and related dementias, Parkinson's disease, and stroke in diverse populations. Joint appoints in clinical and basic research departments are possible.

Minimum Qualifications

Doctoral degree (e.g., PhD, MD or equivalent) with demonstrated expertise and sponsored scholarship in the epidemiology of neurodegenerative diseases.
