The IU School of Informatics and Computing (SoIC) at IUPUI invites applications for an open-rank tenure-track or tenured faculty position in the Department of BioHealth Informatics (BHI). The appointment will begin August 1, 2022 on the IUPUI campus. Exceptional faculty candidates are being sought to join our fast-growing department. We welcome applications from established researchers with collaborative research teams.

By strengthening or complementing the faculty research in the department, the ideal candidates will use creative, innovative approaches and technologies to address fundamental BHI challenges with broader societal impact, and have the potential to leverage the strengths of the School of Informatics and Computing, including the Polis Center, the Collaborative AI Institute established at the IUPUI Campus level, the unique location in downtown Indianapolis, interdisciplinary and collaborative environment and nation-wide leadership in the health and life sciences.

As the state's premier urban research institution, IUPUI is committed to being a welcoming campus community that reflects and enacts the values of diversity, equity and inclusion that inform academic excellence. We seek candidates who will not only enhance our representational diversity but whose research, teaching, and community engagement efforts contribute to diverse, equitable, and inclusive learning and working environments for our students, staff, and faculty. IUPUI condemns racism in all its forms and has taken an anti-racist stance that moves beyond mere statements to interrogating its policies, procedures, and practices. We hope to identify individuals who will assist in our mission to dismantle racism so that everyone has the opportunity to succeed at IUPUI.
