The Statistical & Data Sciences Program (SDS) at Smith College invites applications for a tenure-track position in Biostatistics at the rank of Assistant Professor, to begin July 1, 2022. Ph.D. in Biostatistics, Statistics, or a closely-related discipline is expected by the time of appointment. Candidates from groups underrepresented in STEM are encouraged to apply. This position is part of a new cohort of three tenure-track positions in applied mathematics, statistics, and data science. 

The position has a teaching load of two courses per semester, with repeat preparations being common. Successful candidates will have an active research agenda and should be prepared to engage a diverse group of students in this program of research. Teaching responsibilities for this position will include introductory statistics, as well as intermediate, advanced, and capstone courses, for example multiple regression, and design and analysis. Other courses may be taught depending upon the candidate’s field of specialization, for example public health, causal inference, epidemiology, survival analysis, demography, or bioinformatics.
