The University of Southern California (USC), founded in 1880, is the largest private employer in the City of Los Angeles. As an employee of USC, you will be a part of a world-class research university and a member of the “Trojan Family,” which is comprised of the faculty, students and staff that make the university what it is.
The Department of Preventive Medicine of the Keck School of Medicine of USC is seeking an experienced biostatistician with an interest in a full-time position in education. The position is within the non-tenure track and will be at a rank appropriate for the experience of the faculty member. The department teaches a broad array of courses in biostatistics at levels ranging from undergraduates to advanced graduate students. Areas of focus for teaching include general biostatistical methods, data analysis with focus on both simple and multivariate models, application of biostatistical methods to complex data sets using a variety of software programs (e.g. SAS, Stata, SPSS, R), and probability and statistical theory. Teaching responsibilities would focus on courses in our graduate program in biostatistics (master's and Ph.D.), but could also include data-analysis courses within our MPH and undergraduate programs. There are opportunities to develop new classes in areas related to biostatistical methods or applications. While the emphasis is on education, limited time could be available for collaborative research.
Candidates should have a doctoral degree in biostatistics or a related field and teaching experience in one or more academic training programs. Research and consulting experience, particularly involving the application of biostatistical methods to the analysis of data from a health-related field, is desirable.
