Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health — Tenure-Track Position, Department of Biostatistics

The Department of Biostatistics at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health is seeking outstanding colleagues to join our tenure track faculty. Rank of appointment will be commensurate with experience. Both new PhDs and recent postdoctoral fellows are encouraged to apply. Candidates should have a PhD or equivalent in statistics, biostatistics, or a comparable field.

The Hopkins Department of Biostatistics, founded in 1918, was the first degree-granting department of statistical science in the US and has ranked among the world’s best throughout its history. Today, the Department comprises 23 tenure track faculty members, 20 research track faculty, 12 postdoctoral fellows and 76 students, two-thirds seeking PhDs. The Department has a proud history of collegiality and diversity. Margaret Merrell, the School’s first female faculty member, was appointed in 1930 and became the School’s first female professor. We highly value this tradition: Women and under-represented candidates are particularly encouraged to apply.

The Department’s faculty, students and fellows strive to be influential at the interface of the statistical and health sciences, with the ultimate goal to increase the health of all people. The Johns Hopkins Schools of Public Health, Medicine, and Nursing, the Johns Hopkins Health System, and the Johns Hopkins University are among the top worldwide and provide a research and educational environment in which faculty can achieve scientific excellence. Current areas of expertise, like our people, are diverse, ranging from the real-time analysis of large, streaming data to philosophy and implementation of data science to statistical theory and methods. Our health applications include genomics, neuroimaging, clinical trials, population modeling, environmental health and many others. Learn more at
