Position description


The 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, 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, Anesthesiology, Neurology, Pediatrics, Physiologic Nursing, Radiation Oncology, and Urology at UCSF.

Computing and data are rapidly transforming how society operates, allowing researchers, health practitioners, and the broader scientific and medical community to address questions that were once intractable by using a combination of large digital data sets, advanced computing, and statistical and computational methods, including machine learning (ML) and inferential methods. The implications for medicine and health are only starting to be realized.
In response to this need and opportunity, the Joint Program in Computational Precision Health builds on the world leadership in computer science and statistics/biostatistics at UC Berkeley, in clinical care and research at UCSF, and in the population and public health sciences at both institutions to support transformational research and doctoral level training at the interface of the computational and health sciences. The vision of the program is to transform personal and public health through computation in real world settings by combining emerging health data with novel analytics, algorithms, and advanced computational systems. Faculty and students will be embedded within UCSF Health and public health practice settings to improve the quality, efficiency, and equity of medicine and public health.

Successful applicants are expected to develop a nationally recognized program and collaborate across disciplines to develop research initiatives in computational precision health. They 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, including applications of computing to health economics and health services research. 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. We are particularly interested in clinician scientists (DDS, DNP, MD, PharmD, PhD, or equivalent) who intend to continue clinical practice at 10-20% effort at UCSF in addition to research at the intersection of computation and health.

Candidates should demonstrate evidence of strong research productivity, potential for securing extramural funding, and a commitment to excellence in teaching and mentoring and to collaborative research. We are particularly interested in scholars with a commitment to and track record of promoting diversity, equity and inclusion in the realms of research, teaching, and/or service. We recognize the intrinsic relationship between diversity and excellence in all our endeavors and embrace open and equitable access to opportunities for learning and development as our obligation and goal. (see https://ofew.berkeley.edu/recruitment/contributions-diversity/support-faculty-candidates for helpful guidelines).

CPH is committed to addressing the family needs of faculty, including dual career couples and single parents. We are also interested in candidates who have had non-traditional career paths or who have taken time off for family reasons, or who have achieved excellence in careers outside academia.
