    Opportunity: Tenure Track Assistant/Associate/Full Professor (#77619) @ Wisconsin Institute for Discovery -- Madison, WI (US)
    Submitted by Patricia Pointer; posted on Friday, September 13, 2013


    The Department of Biostatistics & Medical Informatics (BMI) at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine & Public Health (SMPH), in collaboration with the Morgridge Institute for Research (MIR), seeks a tenure track assistant/associate/full professor starting by August 2014.


    Responsibilities will include training graduate students,teaching one BMI course per year, and participating in professional, university, and community service appropriate to rank.

    The successful candidate will join the BMI Department, home to faculty with expertise in bioinformatics; clinical informatics; image analysis; biostatistics; and statistical genetics and genomics. Faculty collaborate with scientists across UW and the state, including MIR, the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery, the Institute for Clinical and Translational Research, the Carbone Cancer Center, and the Marshfield Clinic Research Foundation. The Department maintains strong ties to the world-class Departments of Computer Sciences, Statistics, and Industrial & Systems Engineering, through which many of its graduate students are trained.

    Simultaneously, the successful candidate will join an energetic team of investigators in the Virology Focus Area of MIR, which is furthering understanding and control of viruses and their roles in human disease. The interdisciplinary environment of MIR provides an exciting context for quantitative methodological, computational, and theoretical advances expected of a tenured or tenure track professor in BMI. MIR is part of the twin institutes of the Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery, a public-private initiative that facilitates interdisciplinary research and breakthrough discoveries to advance human health and well-being. The ultra-modern MIR laboratory and computational research facility is located across the street from the BMI suite of offices on the central UW-Madison campus, and has become a hub of collaborative scholarship.


    Candidates should have a PhD in Biostatistics, Statistics, Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, Biomedical Informatics, Computer Sciences, or a closely related quantitative area, and demonstrated ability to work in a collaborative, interdisciplinary environment. Relevant expertise may include, but is not limited to, high-dimensional inference, data integration, graphical modeling, experimental design, network analysis, statistical genetics/genomics, machine learning, optimization, combinatorial algorithms, and image analysis. The incumbent will conduct, publish, and disseminate collaborative and
    methodological research at the forefront of his/her discipline, including maintaining his/her own independent research program. Attracting and maintaining external funding are parts of the position expectations.


    The University of Wisconsin-Madison is a world-class academic institution with an international reputation for basic, applied,and interdisciplinary research. UW-Madison recently surpassed $1 billion in annual research expenditures and ranks third in the nation in science and engineering expenditures. Madison provides a vibrant, culturally rich environment highly ranked in national surveys for quality of life.
