Applicant's profile

The Division of Biostatistics is seeking multiple statisticians at the level of postdoctoral and assistant professor. The statisticians will perform cutting-edge research and may be involved in teaching activities.

Applicants must have a doctoral degree, or equivalent scientific competence, in biostatistics, mathematical statistics, or a related field. Applicants who have not yet completed a doctoral program at the end of the application period may also apply, provided that all requirements for a completed degree are met before the date of employment. This must be substantiated by the applicant's main supervisor, director or equivalent. Knowledge of statistical software is expected, and computer programming skills are desirable. The ability of communicating well in English, both oral and written, is important. Experience from research in epidemiology, medicine, or other substantive disciplines is valuable, but it is not required.
