The Department of Biostatistics at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC-CH) is seeking to recruit an aspiring international scholar in statistical science for the Pranab K. Sen Distinguished Visiting Professorship in Biostatistics. The position is for the fall semester beginning August or September 2023 for a period of up to five months. Preference will be given to applicants from developing countries as defined by the Departments of Biostatistics and Statistics and Operations Research and in consort with the dean of the Gillings School of Global Public Health. Preference will also be given to applicants who provide a plan for the proposed research. The visiting faculty, who will come from an area of statistical science, broadly defined, including bioinformatics, will come to UNC-CH to conduct research, possibly teach, and interact with faculty, students, and the university community. The major benefit will be an intensive interaction of the visitor’s strong methodology background with applications to interdisciplinary research underway at UNC-CH. The visiting professorship, at the assistant, associate, or full professor level, offers salary support commensurate with the rank. Financial support for other expenses is negotiable. Ideally, the visiting scholar will return to his or her home country for at least one year upon completing the appointment to further, expand the reach of interdisciplinary work begun in Chapel Hill. Applicants
should hold a Ph.D. in statistics or biostatistics or have a commensurate educational background.
The deadline for applications is March 1, 2023.
