The University of Florida, Department of Health Outcomes and Biomedical Informatics in the College of Medicine, in collaboration with the Clinical and Translational Science Institute, is recruiting tenure track biomedical informatics faculty. Areas of interest include a research emphasis in clinical and translational research informatics, learning health system, ontology, clinical informatics, pharmacogenomics, precision health, human-computer interaction, or data visualization.
Biomedical informatics is a strategic area of growth for the University and for the UF Health System. Within the Department of Health Outcomes and Informatics, we have grown to five faculty and established certificate, Masters, and PhD programs in 4 years. In addition, we collaborate closely with the UF Informatics Institute and through the Clinical and Translational Science Institute provide leadership for Biomedical Informatics throughout the Health Science Center, the Health System and University. The Division of Biomedical Informatics in the Department of Health Outcomes and Biomedical Informatics has established a project management office and a team of software engineers and analysts, both of which serve as faculty resources for numerous biomedical informatics, departmental, and university-wide initiatives. In addition, the candidate will have access to numerous assets including a centralized Data Trust with clinical, health care claims and social determinants of health data for over 11 M individuals. Many opportunities exist to conduct research and provide training using the Data Trust.
The Department of Health Outcomes and Biomedical Informatics fosters collaborative relationships with investigators across diverse disciplines, including pediatrics, medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, molecular biology, epidemiology, genetics, behavioral medicine, policy evaluation, and health outcomes research. The Department works closely with the Institute for Child Health Policy, Clinical and Translational Science Institute, Department of Pediatrics, Department of Medicine, UF Health Cancer Center, the Institute for Aging and the Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center. The Department, with 22 full‐time faculty members and over 100 professional and support staff, provides an exceptional research environment with over $23M annually in extramural funding.
