  • Job Post Date: 07/10/2017
  • Job Title: Bioinformatics Faculty
  • Contact: Tomas Radivoyevitch qhsjobsearchicb@ccf.org
  • Description:

    Bioinformatics Faculty for Cleveland Clinic Department of Quantitative Health Sciences

    The Department of Quantitative Health Sciences (QHS) at the Cleveland Clinic main campus is searching for a doctoral level candidate to conduct independent research and collaborate with Cleveland Clinic investigators in areas related to bioinformatics and systems medicine. The successful candidate will join an active team of about 80 QHS bioinformaticians, biostatisticians, epidemiologists, outcomes researchers, analysts, database developers, and programmers working in a wide range of clinical areas and statistical methodologies. Candidates should have considerable experience collaborating on clinical or translational research in an academic health care setting, with examples of creative analytic approaches to complex problems in health care through proven records of collaborative publications. Evidence of external funding support, or potential for gaining such support, is required. Excellent academic writing and communication skills must be clearly demonstrated; verbal proficiency in the English language is required.

    Job Requirements

    In the cover letter, the applicant should speak to his or her skills and experience in any of the following areas (not all are required in any one applicant):

    • Network and Systems Medicine

    • Microbiomics

    • Metabolomics and Proteomics

    • Integrated Omics

    A PhD in bioinformatics or a related field is required. The candidate is expected to conduct independent research as well as to collaborate with other scientists at Cleveland Clinic. The candidate will be expected to help write collaborative research grant applications and manuscripts. Independent PhD level methodological research in a related area is expected. While the level of appointment is open, candidates must have at least 2 years of experience beyond the doctoral degree.   More senior candidates will have opportunity for a leadership position, and building a bioinformatics program. 

    A competitive package will be provided.  The successful candidate will have appointments at Cleveland Clinic and a joint appointment in the Institute of Computational Biology at Case Western Reserve University.  

    Cleveland Clinic is one of the world’s largest and busiest health centers.  U.S. News & World Report has declared that we are among the top two “Best Hospitals” in America.  In cardiology and urology, we lead the nation.  Our Heart Center has been ranked number one in America for 20 years in a row.

    Since 1998, Cleveland Clinic has used the EPIC electronic health record, which contains more than 4 million unique patients.  We have approximately 200 million patient encounters, 25 million hospital encounters, and more than 1 billion lab results. These data are available to Cleveland Clinic researchers.

    The Lerner Research Institute is home to Cleveland Clinic’s laboratory-based translational and clinical research, including the Department of Quantitative Health Sciences.  Nearly 2,000 scientists and support personnel pursue a wide range of biomedical questions with the common goal of improving human health. We are committed to academic excellence, and the great majority of our faculty also have appointments at the nearby Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland State University, Kent State University, and/or University of Akron.  We are an integral part of the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine of Case Western Reserve University – a program dedicated to training the next generation of physician-scientists. Total annual research expenditures at Cleveland Clinic exceed $250 million, including more than $100 million in federal funding.  Our faculty publish approximately 1,300 research articles per year, many of which appear in high impact journals.  The Department of Quantitative Health Sciences has expertise in all aspects of clinical research, from study design to statistical analysis and reporting.

    Interested candidates should e-mail their curriculum vitae, the names of at least three references and a letter summarizing their experience and interest to qhsjobsearchicb@ccf.org.

#749 | Kathleen Derwin, Ph.D. | Department of Biomedical Engineering

  • Job Post Date: 06/22/2017
  • Job Title: Faculty Position in Joint Kinematics Research
  • Contact: Kathleen Derwin, Ph.D. derwink@ccf.org
  • Description:

    Cleveland Clinic’s Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) seeks a faculty member to lead a collaborative research program in joint kinematics, housed in BME within the Lerner Research Institute. The individual will build an interdisciplinary research program among BME researchers as well as clinician-investigators in the Orthopaedic and Rheumatologic Institute and Imaging Institute.  

    The musculoskeletal research community at Cleveland Clinic includes over 50 researchers across multiple institutes. Their diverse research efforts are supported by shared core facilities and specialized state-of-the-art motion analysis laboratories, advanced robotics testing of musculoskeletal joints, wet and dry laboratory space, access to a wide array of standard mechanical and biological testing equipment, computational modeling and simulation in biomechanics, medical imaging facilities, and a system-wide prospective surgical outcomes cohort. Exceptional collaboration possibilities between laboratory and clinical scientists, and access to large patient populations within the region, provide a unique opportunity for translational investigations.

    We desire an individual with proven skills in grant funding, leadership, organization, innovation, and interpersonal communication. Competitive candidates will hold a doctorate in engineering, biomedical engineering, physics or a related scientific discipline, have a solid publication record in high-quality peer-reviewed journals, have established or high potential for funding, and be experienced in translational research. The individual is expected to establish and maintain an independent research program and to mentor junior investigators and students. Although not required, teaching opportunities are available through our Department of Molecular Medicine and the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine of Case Western Reserve University. Collaborations and appointments are possible at one of our neighboring academic (Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland State University, Kent State University, University of Akron) or federal institutions (Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center, NASA Glenn Research Center). Applications will be considered at all faculty ranks (Assistant, Associate, and Full).

    A generous five-year start-up package is available to support this recruitment, including financial resources for salary, operations, and equipment commensurate with the rank of the individual. Ongoing financial support and commitment beyond the start-up period is provided for all Lerner faculty. The opportunity for adding biplanar radiography capability exists, as does an opportunity for collaborating in the leadership of a clinical gait laboratory within the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery.

    Interested applicants should submit:

    • A letter of application

    • Complete curriculum vitae

    • 1- to 2-page research plan and statement of current and future research goals
