Tenure Track Faculty Positions

The Department of Biomedical Informatics (DBMI) of Columbia University seeks exceptional junior- and senior-level faculty members in the tenure track.

The positions are open to researchers interested in developing and applying informatics theory and achieving tangible benefits to health care and biology. Three particular foci are health-related data science, health information technology-based interventions to improve health care, and translational bioinformatics research that links our clinical and computational biology strengths.

DBMI is an interdisciplinary department, comprising 45 faculty members and 50 students and postdoctoral fellows. The Department has amassed a large, diverse research portfolio, breaking new ground in several areas of informatics research. Its mission is to improve the health of the population and to make biomedical discoveries using information and computational techniques. It runs a diverse portfolio of clinical applications for New York-Presbyterian Hospital including a 5-million-patient, 12,000-user electronic health record and a number of vendor products. The Department is known for its work on informatics to support clinical care and clinical research, observational research, medical language processing, and translational bioinformatics.

The ideal candidate will have a strong record of accomplishments and publications in research areas spanning the boundary between life sciences and the computational sciences. In addition, senior candidates will have a strong record of funding. The candidate must have a doctorate in Biomedical Informatics, Computer Science, Statistics, Physics, Computational Biology, or a related computational or health field. DBMI is especially interested in recruiting informaticians with a medical degree. The level of appointment will be commensurate with experience.

If you seek a challenging research career in a highly collaborative, interdisciplinary department, please send a description of your research interests, a curriculum vitae, a set of no more than 5 relevant publications, and the names of at least three references to Soumitra Sengupta, PhD, Associate Professor and Co-Interim Chair of Biomedical Informatics, PH20, 622 West 168th Street, New York, NY 10032 (sen@columbia.edu).
