Faculty and Institutional Leadership Position in Biomedical Informatics


The Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth College (Geisel) and its major clinical partner, Dartmouth Hitchcock, seek an outstanding individual who is pursuing a vigorous, independent research program focused on developing innovative informatics methods and technologies to advance medical care, biomedical science, and human health to join our faculty and lead our efforts in Biomedical Informatics. The successful individual will also serve as Director of Biomedical Informatics for the Dartmouth Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSA; called SYNERGY at Dartmouth), helping to establish research linkages between investigators and the electronic health record system at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center and connecting Dartmouth’s CTSA with the wider national CTSA network.

Applicants must have earned a PhD and/or MD (or equivalent), have formal advanced training in biomedical informatics, computer science, or a related field, a successful track record of peer-reviewed publications, and a history of extramural funding. The successful candidate will be provided with a faculty appointment at Geisel commensurate with experience. Candidates with appropriate experience may also serve as the Chief Research Information Officer at Dartmouth-Hitchcock. Expectations for teaching and mentoring are a critical part of this role, and individuals will be provided with such opportunities through membership in relevant PhD graduate programs (e.g., Program in Quantitative Biomedical Sciences, Program in Molecular and Experimental Medicine, and Program in Molecular and Cellular Biology), the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Clinical Informatics Program, and SYNERGY. The successful candidate will be expected to lead in efforts to further develop biomedical informatics at Geisel and Dartmouth-Hitchcock within an environment with strong commitments to data and biomedical sciences supported through core departments (e.g., Biomedical Data Science, Epidemiology, Molecular and Systems Biology, and Computer Science), The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Care (TDI, an international leader in health services research, medical epidemiology, and health policy), Norris Cotton Cancer Center (NCCC; one of 47 comprehensive cancer centers), The The Population Health Collaboratory, supercomputing networks (e.g., Discovery) and SYNERGY.
