The Department of Biomedical Informatics at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC) seeks candidates for a Professor position in the tenure and non-tenure research tracks. We are seeking candidates with expertise in computational biology, statistical bioinformatics, statistical genetics, genome-enabled medicine, and/or systems biomedicine. Possible methodological research projects include, but are not limited to, developing statistical/computational methods for integrated analysis of genomic data, analysis of next-generation sequencing and RNA-seq data, pathway- and genetic network-based analysis, rare variant analysis of complex disorders, discovery of genetic interactions in genome-wide studies, and developing innovative genome analysis methods and software. Responsibilities include establishing an independent research program in methodological and collaborative research focused on pediatric medicine, actively participating in the Department's educational mission and graduate programs, and synergizing with the Department's bioinformatics support services.
CCHMC is one of the largest children's hospitals in the nation and ranks at the top of pediatric medical centers in the world with respect to external funding and research accomplishments. The Department has strong ties with world-class biostatistics, bioinformatics, systems biology, and developmental biology groups at Cincinnati Children's and the University of Cincinnati. This environment provides rich collaborative opportunities in molecular study design, statistical genetic analysis, genetic epidemiology, genomics, personalized medicine, epigenetics, and biomedical informatics.
