Research Positions in Biostatistics/Computational Biology

The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), located in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, is recruiting for multiple full-time appointments at either the tenure-track or tenure-eligible level (Assistant, Associate, and Full Professor equivalents) in the areas of biostatistics, bioinformatics, and computational biology. The NIEHS is located in the Research Triangle Park (RTP), a world renowned research center which is near to major universities and institutes including the University of North Carolina, NC State University, Duke University, and SAMSI. The positions are within the Biostatistics Branch (http://www.niehs.nih.gov/research/atniehs/labs/bb/index.cfm) which enjoys ties to nearby departments of statistics and biostatistics. The successful candidate will develop and direct a high-quality, independent research program on analytic methods applicable to understanding the effects of the environment on human health. Investigators in the NIH intramural program have no formal teaching duties and are funded internally, with the potential for generous long-term, continuous support. They are expected to engage directly in research and methods development with postdoctoral fellows, students, and support staff and to collaborate with colleagues in solving important scientific problems related to the Institute's mission. Applicants should have a Ph.D. or equivalent doctoral degree and a proven record in the development of analytic methods with biomedical application. Experience working with epidemiologic or high dimensional genetic, epigenetic, and genomic datasets is highly desirable, but not required. Applicants at the tenure-eligible level should have a proven record of innovation in the field and possess skills and experience well-suited to a leadership position in the Branch. Excellent start-up funds, salary and benefits packages will be provided to the selected applicants. Applications from women and underrepresented minorities are strongly encouraged. Appointees may be U.S. citizens, resident aliens, or non-resident aliens with, or eligible to obtain, a valid employment-authorization visa. Interested persons should send their curriculum vitae, a two page statement of research interests and goals, and arrange for 3 letters of recommendation to be sent to Ms. Emily Starnes at dir-appls@niehs.nih.gov citing Vacancy Announcement DIR 14-2. Paper applications will not be accepted. We will begin evaluating applications on or about Feb 10th, 2014. Applications will continue to be accepted until vacancies are filled.

The NIH is dedicated to building a diverse community in its training and employment programs.
