The Department of Biostatistics and Medical Informatics (BMI), in collaboration with the Department of Surgery at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, seeks an Assistant Professor (CHS) or Associate Professor (CHS) of Biostatistics.

We welcome your application to join a vibrant basic research department (BMI) and serve as a Core Investigator with the Wisconsin Surgical Outcomes Research Program (WiSOR), a Department of Surgery unit focused on health services, health outcomes, and behavioral intervention research, as well as clinical trial design. BMI and Surgery have a strong collaborative research relationship and wish to strengthen that relationship through these activities. Both departments are deeply committed to having people from a wide range of backgrounds and life experiences engage with, contribute to, and participate in our research, teaching, service, and outreach activities.

This is an opportunity to use your biostatistical expertise, unique perspective, and experience to contribute significantly to health services research that will ultimately benefit patients in the clinic and their families. You will have the opportunity to collaborate with investigators; develop novel statistical and experimental approaches; and apply your biostatistical expertise to a wide range of health services, clinical trial design, and behavioral health interventions research. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to engage with BMI faculty and staff, teach BMI graduate courses; be a trainer in BMI’s graduate programs; develop yourself as a leader, and potentially a supervisor; and contribute to the departments, school, institution, and profession through committee and service work, all while supporting the school’s efforts to create a diverse, anti-racist, inclusive, and accepting culture and environment for all.

If you are selected for this role, you will find yourself in a fast-paced, dynamic, collaborative, and intellectually stimulating environment that will challenge and engage you, and in which everyone engages with one another in a manner consistent with the SMPH Shared Guidelines for Professional Conduct.

The Department of Biostatistics and Medical Informatics and the Department of Surgery are committed to creating an inclusive, accepting, welcoming, and anti-racist environment in which all people can thrive. We especially encourage those groups underrepresented in STEM fields to apply for this position.
