UCSF and UC Berkeley are seeking a dynamic and collaborative leader to serve as the inaugural Executive Director of the UCSF UC Berkeley Joint Program in Computational Precision Health (CPH). For this new and growing program, the Executive Director will develop and implement CPH’s long-term strategic vision and research impact areas under the direction of the Faculty Directors and will design, ensure funding, and oversee the implementation of research and strategic programs.
The Executive Director will provide innovative leadership to help CPH realize its vast potential and meet its mission. The incumbent will lead strategic planning, partnership development, and fundraising efforts on behalf of the Program. Working closely with the Senior Administrative Officer, the Executive Director will oversee the Program’s operations and ensure organizational efficiency and effectiveness. The Executive Director will identify and recommend funds, and launch and lead implementation of high-value, multi-investigator research programs for CPH in partnership with government agencies, foundations, NGOs, and other service providers or funders.
The CPH Executive Director will be an inspiring and visionary leader with a strong commitment to research and organizational growth. The ideal candidate for this position will be an experienced leader in a scientific, research-oriented or similar organization. The role requires a collaborative and strategic thought partner with the ability to cultivate, maintain and grow trusting working relationships with a variety of partners and stakeholders. Successful candidates should possess excellent communication skills and be able to share the program’s story and scientific and/or complex topics in a compelling way to diverse audiences. The successful candidate should also have the ability to inspire, engage and steward relationships with a range of program sponsors.
To develop and manage the center and team, the candidate should have expert creativity and organizational management skills to build and oversee a program within a complex organization, including administrative, budgetary, human resources, financial management, event planning, communications, and knowledge management responsibilities.

ASSISTANT / ASSOCIATE / FULL PROFESSORS (Open Rank)
Computational Precision Health, UC Berkeley, UCSF
The application for this position has closed.
UCSF UC Berkeley Joint Program in Computational Precision Health seeks applicants for an open-rank tenured or tenure track FTE (“hard money”) position. Successful candidates will have a strong track record of applying computational and data sciences to health and are expected to develop a nationally recognized research program. They will collaborate across disciplines to develop research initiatives in the realm of computational precision health and will be expected to conduct teaching and research at both campuses in the true spirit of the joint program.
We seek rising leaders from diverse fields with active research at the intersection of the computational sciences and the health sciences, broadly defined to include aspects of mental and physical health; population and public health; public policy and economics; and equity and fairness.
The specific areas of interest within computational precision health are not restricted, and may include expertise in:
- big data analytics
- clinical decision support
- electronic health records
- health informatics and clinical research informatics
- machine learning
- digital health
- wearable devices
- privacy, and related areas
Applicants who have clinical training (e.g., MD, DO, DDS, DNP, PharmD, or equivalent) will have the opportunity to continue clinical practice at UCSF at 10-20% effort in addition to research at the intersection of computation and health.We strongly encourage applications from clinician-scientists.
Joining the AGG
