Faculty Initiative in Biomedical Informatics
Computer Science & Engineering Department, Storrs
The University of Connecticut (UConn) invites applications for two tenure-track faculty positions in the Computer Science & Engineering Department in the School of Engineering to join an interdisciplinary, integrated team in biomedical informatics (BMI) that spans both the UConn main Storrs and Health Center campuses. The team will be comprised of faculty appointed at all ranks; qualified candidates will be considered for tenure. This BMI team will conduct research, education, and outreach within the Biomedical Informatics Division (BMID) of the Connecticut Institute for Clinical and Translational Science (CICATS: https://health.uconn.edu/connecticut-convergence-institute/).
Applicants should hold a computer science &/or engineering degree (PhD) with a research interest of software engineering including ultra-large scale system design, operating systems, distributed systems, software architectures, security, databases, and programming languages, and with background and/or interest in applying their research to a clinical, medical, public health, or a related field. At this time, we are NOT seeking individuals with an interest in bio or genome informatics. This position will include classroom teaching and engaging in research efforts in computer science and engineering with applications to medical and clinical informatics. Senior candidates with existing research programs who are interested in moving their work and research team to UConn are strongly encouraged to apply.
The University is in the midst of a 20-year, state-funded $2.3 billion initiative to enhance the research mission. In addition to the Schools of Engineering, Medicine, and Dental Medicine and the graduate programs in biomedical sciences, there are several Practice Based Research Networks whose access to electronic medical records creates outstanding research opportunities in Informatics.
Applicants will have a primary faculty appointment at the rank of Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor, commensurate with qualifications, in the Computer Science & Engineering (CSE) Department on UConn’s main campus in Storrs. While your primary appointment will be in the CS&E Department at Storrs, there is an expectation that you will be working with colleagues at the UConn Health Center on a regular basis.
Electronic Applications preferred to include curriculum vita and the names and contact information for at least five references, sent in .pdf format (all application materials in one file) to Noreen Wall at BMI-Search@engr.uconn.edu or Noreen@engr.uconn.edu.
