Open Rank - Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor: Contract, Tenure-Track or Tenured Research and Teaching Appointment in Nutrition Data Science
The Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University seeks candidates for a tenure-track or tenured faculty position in Nutrition Data Science, at all levels. The rank will be determined by experience and accomplishments. Candidates must possess a doctoral degree in a relevant field, which may include computer sciences, statistics, epidemiology, or other related fields, and demonstrate the understanding of nutrition and public health sciences.
Big Data and advanced analytics provide new dimensions and strategies to better understand the role of nutrition in a modern society, inform and monitor behavioral change, and to build an integrative inter-sectoral knowledge platform in nutrition science and policy. We seek applicants capable of conceptualizing and conducting research that explore the development and adaptation of computational methods and models for ‘big data’ in nutrition.
