The Division of Epidemiology is a multi-disciplinary group dedicated to improving clinical and public health practice and policy through innovative and sustainable education, research, and service. Candidates who hold doctoral degrees in fields such as public health, epidemiology, pharmacy (PharmD), pharmacy administration, health outcomes research, data science, or related fields are encouraged to apply. We are particularly interested in candidates with expertise in aging, pharmacoepidemiology or comparative effectiveness/safety research, and outcomes research. Our ideal candidate would be skilled at using administrative data resources for research (Medicare claims, Minimum Data Set for nursing homes, health insurance claims data) and have expertise in SAS. Candidates will have ample opportunities for collaboration and publication.
