The Department of Biomedical Informatics (BMI, http://bmi.osu.edu) at The Ohio State University College of Medicine currently has opportunities for tenure-track faculty with clinical training and research interests related to the clinical application of biomedical informatics.
We are specifically seeking candidates with experience and interests in one or more of the following areas:
- The translation of informatics discoveries into clinical practice through collaboration with information technology and the health system;
- The application of network analysis, hypothesis discovery, natural language processing, visualization, or data mining methods to clinical data sets
Applications: The successful applicant will have a clinical doctorate (e.g., MD/DO/PharmD) and/or PhD in BMI, computer science, health services research, or related discipline. Clinician scientists are particularly encouraged to apply. This is an opportunity to work in a highly academic and research-intensive environment with potential clinical opportunities. To apply, please e-mail a cover letter, a CV, teaching/mentoring philosophy, and research statement to: BMI.firstname.lastname@example.org. PDF submissions are preferred. Any questions can be directed to the chair of the search committee, Dr. Courtney Hebert (Courtney.email@example.com). Evaluation of applications is underway and will continue until positions are filled.
BMI is the academic home for informatics research, development, and training at Ohio State. Faculty interests span multiple domains including: biostatistics, bioinformatics, clinical informatics, and health systems. BMI Faculty have ongoing collaborations with faculty in departments throughout the University and nationally. The Ohio State University is one of the nation’s largest integrated health sciences campuses, with access to a CTSA-funded Center for Clinical and Translational Science and state-of-the-art 1 million square foot, NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, Institute of Immuno-oncology, Institute of Infectious Diseases, Translational Data Analytics Institute (TDAI), and Center for the Advancement of Team Science, Analytics, and Systems Thinking in Health Services and Implementation Science Research (CATALYST). Faculty and staff in the College of Medicine can leverage an advanced information systems environment including comprehensive inpatient and outpatient electronic health records, data warehousing platforms, and a variety of enterprise research information systems. Through a partnership with the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC, http://www.osc.edu ), BMI faculty have access to high-performance computing and data management facilities for both clinical and bio-molecular data.
The Ohio State University is committed to establishing a culturally and intellectually diverse environment, encouraging all members of our learning community to reach their full potential. We are responsive to dual-career families and strongly promote work-life balance to support our community members through a suite of institutionalized policies.

Summer Internship Program
The Department of Biomedical Informatics offers a summer internship program annually that provides graduating high school seniors and current undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to pursue research projects under the guidance of research and operational staff and renowned faculty mentors.
Open-rank faculty recruitment in systems immunology
The Department of BMI and the Institute for Immuno-Oncology (IIO) at the OSU Comprehensive Cancer Center jointly recruit faculty members in systems immunology.
Launched with a $100 million investment in 2019, the IIO will focus on developing strategies to harness the power of the immune system to fight cancer. One of the key areas of the IIO will be systems immunology, which utilizes omics strategy to probe the immune system, analyze changes of the tumor microenvironment in response to immunotherapy, and develop new immunological paradigms. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, neoantigen discovery, antigen receptor repertoire analysis, microbiome, single cell genomics and transcriptomics and functional genomics.
Applications are encouraged from cancer immunologists, physician scientists, and bioinformaticians with interests in any of these aforementioned areas in immune-oncology. Previous use of OMICs including transcriptomics, proteomics, epigenomics, microbiome and metabolome, and expertise in big data science are essential. The positions will be supported by substantial start-up packages. Candidates at the assistant professor level should have a demonstrated record of success in multiple venues with substantial potential to obtain extramural funding. Candidates at the associate or full professor levels should have robust and active research programs and demonstrable national or international reputations, respectively.
Interested candidates should forward a cover letter, CV and statement of research interests to BMI.firstname.lastname@example.org. PDF submissions are preferred. Evaluation of applications is underway and will continue until positions are filled.
The IIO is a newly established Institute in The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center (OSUCCC) – James, where Dr. Zihai Li is the founding director. The OSUCCC – James is a National Cancer Institute designated Comprehensive Cancer Center and a founding member of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network, an alliance of the nation’s leading cancer centers that develops and institutes standards of care for the treatment and control of cancer, the advancement of biomedical knowledge through laboratory and clinical research, and the training of scientists, physicians and other health care workers.
