Associate Professor/Professor

The Department of Clinical Sciences at UT Southwestern Medical Center is seeking applicants for an Associate Professor or Professor-level faculty position commensurate with experience who will serve as the Chief of the Division of Epidemiology in the Department of Clinical Sciences.

We expect the Chief to recruit several faculty and postdoctoral positions over the next several years. The goal is to further strengthen the breadth and depth of the Department, which will provide in-depth epidemiological collaboration and consultation with all clinical investigators at UT Southwestern.

Candidates for this position must have significant accomplishments in the field of epidemiology, especially as it pertains to medical disorders (e.g., cancer, cardiology, psychiatry, etc.). We aim to develop a world-class Division of Epidemiology.

Professional experience or accomplishments should include innovative contributions to the design or analyses of epidemiological investigations, a track record of consistently high-quality publications, demonstrated leadership with management, organizational, and administrative skills, and evidence of strong communication, conceptualization, and teaching abilities.

The successful doctoral applicant will play a pivotal role in the development of both the Division and the Department, ensure the development of top-notch clinical and epidemiological investigators (in both interventional and translational research), recruit and develop faculty within the Division, and continue his/her own scientific work.
