Faculty Positions in Biomedical Data Science

The University of Oregon (UO) is seeking faculty to join our growing community of scholars working at the intersection of mathematics and computer science, with a focus on biomedical data science. The Departments of Mathematics ( and Computer and Information Science (, and the Data Science Program at UO, therefore announce a cluster hire of two tenure-related faculty positions at all levels. The positions have an expected start date of Fall 2022.

These hires are part of an integrated effort to strengthen research, scholarship, and teaching in data science at the University of Oregon ( through affiliation with the Center for Biomedical Data Science (CBDS) that is being launched jointly by the Knight Cancer Institute of Oregon Health & Science University ( and the new Phil and Penny Knight Campus for Accelerating Scientific Impact at the University of Oregon ( The mission of CBDS is to enable collaborative research and scholarship that brings together cutting-edge data science approaches and “-omics" technologies, with a particular goal of detecting cancer and other deadly diseases earlier, faster and better.

To support this goal, we are broadly interested in recruiting candidates who develop mathematical, statistical or computational methodology related to the analysis of data from complex biological systems, with particular interest in predictive modeling of cellular systems related to biomedical problems. Examples of these areas include, but are not limited to, statistical analysis of large data sets, machine learning/artificial intelligence-based study of cellular systems, systems biology and functional genetics, and dynamical systems in biology. Applicants working to integrate math and/or computer science in other areas related to biomedical data science are also encouraged to apply.

We are looking for candidates to join our growing community in data science. Successful candidates will teach in a new university-wide major in data science at a level commensurate with maintaining an active research program. Ph.D. required, and those beginning their career are encouraged to apply.

Interested persons should apply online to the Assistant Professor Data Science Search, University of Oregon at Applicants should submit a cover letter, a curriculum vitae including a publication list, a statement of research accomplishments and future research plans, a statement on the candidate’s experience and/or plans that advance diversity and inclusion, a description of teaching experience and philosophy, and three letters of recommendation.  To be assured of full consideration, application materials should be uploaded by December 1, 2021, but the search will remain open until the positions are filled.
