Faculty Openings

Faculty potentially interested in joining the PHI program should contact us.

The past decade has witnessed a dramatic increase in Northeastern’s international reputation for research and innovative educational programs. A heightened focus on interdisciplinary research and scholarship is driving a faculty hiring initiative at Northeastern, advancing its position among the nation’s top research universities. Northeastern is interested in “cluster hires” where groups of top researchers in a particular area may come to Northeastern as a unit. In 2014 there is active interest in hiring senior faculty in the PHI-related areas of computational behavioral science and cognitive modeling for health, affective science and sensors for health.

Opportunities

In addition to hiring transdisciplinary senior researchers (Associate or Full) in computational behavioral science and cognitive modeling for health, affective science and sensors for health, other positions are available this year. For a full list of faculty openings at Northeastern (with many other positions that could tie into PHI), visit the Provost’s Office job website. Only positions with the most obvious potential synergistic ties to the Personal Health Informatics Doctoral Program will be listed below.

The College of Computer and Information Science has 3-5 open positions this year. They are targeted at data-intensive computing (e.g., machine learning, databases, and data mining), systems (e.g., operating systems and networks), and software engineering. However, all strong candidates in any area, especially at the Associate or Full Professor rank, will be considered.

All positions offer the opportunity to participate in the PHI program for applicants interested in PHI technology.
