Overview

The Department of Epidemiology at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health (HSPH) invites applications from candidates for a faculty position as assistant or associate professor of epidemiology, with a focus on Alzheimer’s disease and other sources of age-related cognitive decline.

The successful candidate will contribute to expanding the department’s role as a center for clinical epidemiologic research and training. Areas of interest include etiologic and prognostic research, integration of biomarkers and imaging into research studies, and comparative-effectiveness research. He or she will be expected to conduct original empirical research in Alzheimer’s disease, other forms of dementia, and age-related cognitive decline and to facilitate departmental engagement in these areas with related efforts within the Harvard Chan School, Harvard Medical School, and Harvard teaching hospitals (e.g., the Nurses’ Health Study and the Health Professionals Follow-up Study, the Center for Alzheimer Research and Treatment, and the Massachusetts Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center).
