Professorial Positions in Biostatistics at Fudan University
We are seeking for qualified applicants to fill three professorial positions recently available in
the newly created Institute of Biostatistics, Fudan University in Shanghai, China.
A successful applicant to these posts is expected to have a Ph.D. degree either in
statistics/biostatistics but with strong research interests in any branches of Biology or in a
biology subject but with demonstrated ability of using statistics/mathematics in research.
She/he should have post-doctoral research experience in biostatistics/statistics or relevant
subjects and a good record of publications as a leading author in internationally recognised
journals. Experience in teaching statistics in universities or research institutions is desirable
but not essential for the applicants with an outstanding track record in research.
You are expected to create your own research group within the institute at the same time to
maintain collaborative interaction with statisticians, mathematicians and biologists in the
university campuses. You will be encouraged to win research grants from national or/and
international funding sectors.
You will play a core role in the institute’s postgraduate training programs through teaching
key lectures of the training programs. In addition, you are required to supervise postgraduates
and postdoctoral fellows.
We offer a competitive package to successful applicants. This basically includes an annual
salary of RMB100k, house allowance of RMB200k and a start-up research support of RMB
100~300k, but negotiation may be made for more senior applicants.
To apply for the post, you should send a formal application letter, a full curriculum vita,
copies of no more than five representative papers published in peer-reviewed journals and
names of at least two referees to the following address. Applications are open until all these
positions are filled up.
