The Department of Epidemiology at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health invites applications for a tenure-track assistant or associate professor with a focus on evaluating the population benefits and risks of medications, vaccines, and medical devices.
We seek candidates with experience in innovative methods in comparative effectiveness and safety of pharmaceuticals, equitable health care, causal inference, machine learning, pharmaco-genomics, global pharmacovigilance, or drug regulatory science. Experience with electronic health records and administrative healthcare data analytics would be preferred but is not required.
Successful candidates will be expected to conduct empirical research in epidemiology and to participate actively in teaching and training programs of the Department of Epidemiology, including the Pharmacoepidemiology Program and the CAUSALab. of the Department of Epidemiology.
The Department of Epidemiology is committed to the success of junior faculty. To that end, a newly appointed colleague can expect mentoring from senior faculty and opportunities for collaboration, funding for trainees (availability varies depending on research interests), and access to healthcare databases, programmers, computer servers (including ones customized for causal inference), social media outreach and other communications, plus regular group meetings in Harvard's pharmacoepidemiologic and methodologic research communities.
The Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health champions diversity, equity, and inclusion in hiring and promotion. Women and individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups are strongly encouraged to apply.
Candidates must have completed a doctoral degree in epidemiology or a closely related field, and have demonstrated excellence in research, teaching, and scholarly publication.
These qualifications will be evaluated with reference to the Department's preference for candidates who are near the beginning of their careers and likely to prosper in areas such as those described above.
