For at least one of the positions, we seek candidates with a strong background in biostatistical theory and methods, demonstrated expertise in the development of new methods, and an interest in collaborative research in public health and biomedical sciences. We also seek candidates with expertise in data science more broadly, including computational science, machine learning and related methods, with applications in health and biomedical research. Candidates should have the potential to become leaders in the development and application of biostatistical methods and computation in health sciences and should be enthusiastic about teaching, training, and mentorship through our graduate programs. Responsibilities will include methodological and collaborative research, teaching, and supervision of graduate students.

The Department of Biostatistics (https://www.hsph.harvard.edu/biostatistics/) offers an exceptional environment to pursue research and education in biostatistics while being at the forefront of efforts to benefit the health of populations worldwide. Our faculty are leaders in the development of methods for the design and analysis of clinical trials and observational studies, missing data, causal inference, precision health, network analysis, computational and systems biology, microbiome analysis, statistical genetics and genomics, neurostatistics, and environmental statistics. Our innovative approaches to the analysis of massive health-related data are strengthened by a deep foundation in theory and application. The department prides itself on having strong mentoring and a supportive environment for assistant and associate professors. Our unique and diverse community provides unparalleled collaborative opportunities with academic departments across Harvard, the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and other world-class Harvard affiliated hospitals.
