Description:

The Department of Biostatistics, Epidemiology & Informatics at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania seeks candidates for an Assistant Professor position in either the non-tenure clinician educator track or the tenure track. Expertise is required in the specific area of biomedical informatics methods development and applications, with the ability to establish oneself as a research leader in their area of specialization.

Clinical responsibilities may include activities in the faculty member’s clinical specialty (if relevant).

Research or scholarship responsibilities may include variations based upon faculty track. Clinician Educator track faculty will typically be focused on collaborative research and scholarship as co-investigators. Tenure track faculty will be principal investigators of extramurally funded research projects and publish in peer-reviewed journals.

The University of Pennsylvania is a vibrant team-science-oriented environment with elite biomedical research collaborators that is ideal for biomedical informatics collaboration and application-driven methodological research. The 10 primary faculty of the Division of Informatics have strengths that span the development, evaluation, and application of cutting-edge informatics methods, approaches, and software that impact the biomedical sciences and healthcare. The Informatics Division is part of a large department, with dozens of highly collaborative faculty from biostatistics and epidemiology. The successful candidate may be eligible for a secondary appointment in other departments and can also become a member of the Institute for Biomedical Informatics (IBI) and the Center for Excellence in Environmental Toxicology (CEET). Established in 2015 to foster interdisciplinary collaboration, the IBI comprises 70+ laboratories with a wide range of biomedical and clinical research focuses. Launched in 2005, CEET receives grant support from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences and is one of only twenty designated Environmental Health Sciences Core Centers in the nation.

Vision

 

As engines of knowledge and new ideas, universities have the unique potential to define the future rather than be defined by it; to pioneer change rather than merely manage it. To do so requires a plan both visionary and pragmatic. The Penn Compact 2022 motivates community members to innovate, be radically inclusive, and positively impact their local, national, and global communities. 

 

Penn’s fundamental priorities — increasing access, integrating knowledge and engaging locally, nationally and globally — are supported by the three core values that make us uniquely Penn: inclusion, innovation, and impact.
