Job Description
Assistant Professor in Epidemiology of Cardiovascular Disease
About the Job
Primary research responsibilities will be to develop an independent program of research in the areas listed above that dovetails with and expands upon the expertise represented among current faculty. It is expected that the successful candidates will both lead their own research efforts and collaborate with other faculty as co-investigators on new grant initiatives. Teaching responsibilities will include teaching courses within the PhD or MPH programs in Epidemiology, or the MS program in Clinical Research. Advising masters, doctoral and post-doctoral students is also expected. Undergraduate teaching and mentoring may also be possible.

The Division provides a rich and collaborative environment for the investigation of cardiovascular disease and related areas, in one of the largest Academic Health Centers in the U.S. Current Division research in cardiovascular epidemiology includes a robust blend of observational studies (e.g., ARIC, MESA, CARDIA, DISCOVERY), pharmacoepidemiology and interventional investigations (e.g., mGlide hypertension control RCT, Stand & Move at Work group randomized trial) aimed at improving public health and engaging a multidisciplinary integration of epidemiology, biology and behavioral science. The dedicated Epidemiology Clinical Research Center is a unique resource for data collection of both large- and small-scale studies. The Division also has a long-standing institutional training grant (T-32) that supports pre- and post-doctoral training in cardiovascular epidemiology and prevention. University-wide ties exist with the Medical School (e.g., Lillehei Heart Institute, Cardiology, Neurology, Endocrinology and others). Cross-disciplinary collaborations are encouraged. The University of Minnesota CTSI supports researchers through a robust range of services including access to clinical data from electronic health records, informatics collaboration and support, biospecimen research support, and regulatory expertise and support. The CTSI also provides professional development opportunities including career development grants for junior faculty.

(1) Biology, etiology and impact of cardiovascular disease or its risk factors
