Join Our Faculty in Computational Precision Health

The Division of Computing, Data Science, and Society at UC Berkeley and the Bakar Computational Health Sciences Institute at UCSF are jointly forming a new Graduate Group in Computational Precision Health in support of a bold new program in this area, and are considering applicants for four open-rank tenured or tenure track “hard money” positions with an expected start date of July 1, 2022.

Successful candidates will have a strong track record of applying computational and data sciences to health, broadly defined to include aspects of mental and physical health; population and public health; public policy and economics; and equity and fairness.

Newly recruited faculty will hold dual appointments at Berkeley and UCSF, joining a vibrant Graduate Group composed of existing faculty from Departments including Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences, Statistics, Industrial Engineering and Operations Research and the Schools of Public Health, Business and Information at UC Berkeley; and the Departments of Medicine, Epidemiology & Biostatistics, Neurology, Pediatrics, Physiologic Nursing, Radiation Oncology, Anesthesia, Orthopedics, and Urology at UCSF.

Successful applicants are expected to develop a nationally recognized program and collaborate across disciplines to develop research initiatives in the realm of computational precision health. We seek rising leaders from diverse fields with active research at the intersection of the computational sciences and the health sciences.

The specific areas of interest within computational precision health are not restricted, and may include big data analytics, clinical decision support, electronic health records, health informatics and clinical research informatics, interoperability, algorithms, machine learning, digital health, networking, wearable devices, privacy, and related areas.

The application deadline has passed.
