Faculty Level Biostatisticians

Baylor College of Medicine and Dan L. Duncan Cancer Center seek highly qualified candidates in Biostatistics to join the Division of Biostatistics and the Biostatistics and Informatics Shared Resource. Interest in translational research, clinical trials and bioinformatics are especially desirable.

Baylor College of Medicine is one of the world's leading medical institutions, ranking 13th among U.S. medical schools in total NIH function ($241 million) this past year and also topped the nation's list for funding in the biological sciences. The DLDCC received its NCI designation in 2007, and recently completed its first successful competitive renewal. There is $125 million in cancer related research currently being conducted by DLDCC members and over 3,000 new cancer patients are seen per year by our hospital affiliates. There is great demand for statistical support for a wide array of cancer-related research across the basic, translational and clinical trials continuum.

We are seeking individuals who are interested in full-time tenure and non-tenure track faculty positions. With cancer center leadership, the College is also developing plans for a new department of combined quantitative sciences that will include a broad range of Ph.D. biostatisticians, bioinformaticians, epidemiologists and staff. The successful candidates will be employed by the Dan L. Duncan Cancer Center with an academic appointment in an appropriate academic department.

Applicants with interests and experience in collaborative research, as well as personal research interests in statistical methodology, and bioinformatics are encouraged to apply. Both a senior and junior position is available. Faculty applicants must have a Ph.D. or equivalent degree in biostatistics, statistics or related field. Good communication skills and ability to work as a member of a multidisciplinary team are essential.

Baylor College of Medicine is an affirmative action/equal opportunity/equal access employer. Hiring is contingent on eligibility to work in the United States. Houston is a wonderful community for work, family, and play.
