Want to get more involved in JSM? Consider volunteering to chair a session. Chairing a session is an important responsibility and a great way to meet your colleagues. If you are interested, contact our section’s 2016 program chair, Jeffrey Morris, at jefmorris@mdanderson.org.

Postdoctoral Opportunities

We invite applications for funding to support career-development efforts for assistant professors or associate/full professors interested in moving into a new research area. We are particularly interested in applications that will result in a benefit to the broader research community. For example, funding could support attendance at a workshop to receive additional training in an applied research area typically underserved by biostatisticians that could benefit from more rigorous research methods through biostatistical support and expertise.

We will accept applications from individuals interested in receiving additional training or from individuals or groups interested in recruiting biostatisticians for training in a specific underserved research area.

We anticipate funding up to two proposals this year, with total funding of up to $5,000 per proposal to be spent within the next 1.5 years. Applicants must be ASA and Biometrics Section members at the time of submission.

A one-page application, due by February 29, should be in the following format:

  • Summary of Request
  • Significance and/or Rationale
  • Budget

Expenditures are restricted to domestic travel and the cost of meeting attendance. A funding period with a start date no earlier than April 1, 2016, and an end date no later than August 31, 2017, also should be specified. Recipients will be expected to submit a brief report within one month of the conclusion of the project.

Applications should be submitted by email to Biometrics Section chair, Debashis Ghosh, at debashis.ghosh@ucdenver.edu.
