Tenured/Tenure-TrackAssociate/Full Professor of Biostatistics Parkinson School of Health Sciences and Public Health Public Health Sciences Department at Loyola University Chicago
Loyola University Chicago’s Parkinson Faculty are Called to Be Health Entrepreneurs. Join Us.
Loyola University Chicago ( LUC ), Parkinson School of Health Sciences and Public Health invites applications for a full-time tenure-track or tenured biostatistics position at the rank of Associate or Full Professor in the Department of Public Health Sciences. This position is a 12-month appointment.
Organizational OverviewLoyola University Chicago’s Parkinson School of Health Sciences and Public Health (est. 2019) is an innovative new school committed to applying an entrepreneurial philosophy of educational excellence, research, and service as a means to achieve the goals of improving human potential through the health sciences and the promotion of health equity. Parkinson graduates put their knowledge and skills to work in the public, private, and non-governmental organization sectors in areas such as healthcare systems and services, public health, and higher education.
The Parkinson School is the newest expansion of the Loyola University Health Sciences Campus, which is uniquely positioned, through its partnership with the Loyola University Health System and Trinity Health, to develop academic, research, and engagement programs that meet the needs of an expanding healthcare environment. Our academic vision is centered on the most urgent and complex problems facing health and health care today. Because these problems are complex, the foremost way to fulfill this vision is for faculty and students from Loyola’s many schools to work jointly in a collaborative fashion. The work is highly interdisciplinary and advances a model of One Loyola.
Through four areas of study (Applied Health Sciences, Healthcare Administration, Health Informatics and Data Science, and Public Health Sciences) within the Parkinson School, faculty teach, challenge, and mentor undergraduate and graduate students, as well as career professionals. We emphasize interdisciplinary learning, collaboration, and care for communities, while maintaining a focus on better understanding all the social determinants of health. Our faculty pursue a range of scholarly research that incorporates systems- and design-thinking, which translates into sustainable, scalable solutions to advance knowledge and improve health and the delivery of care. Our graduates are well-positioned to tackle dynamic healthcare needs and public policy issues, particularly as they pertain to the underserved and those living on the margins.
There has never been a more important time to build a new interdisciplinary health sciences and public health school. Parkinson School faculty are called to develop the next generation of healthcare leaders who will drive change and expand knowledge in the service of humanity through learning, justice, and faith.

Parkinson School HighlightsThe Parkinson School is the academic home for the newly established Center for Health Innovation and Entrepreneurship ( CHIE ). CHIE is a platform for creating and advancing innovations across the health enterprise. When fully operational, CHIE will create a transformative educational experience for our many students and support faculty and student-initiated research in new care models, artificial intelligence or business model planning. CHIE is intended to serve as a focal point for forming strategic partnerships by cultivating a community of innovation and entrepreneurship. A search for the Founding Director of CHIE is currently underway.
The Parkinson School is also the academic home for a $25 million endowed Center for Health Outcomes and Informatics Research ( CHOIR ) with the mission of enhancing collaborative research across campuses on health outcomes and equity research. CHOIR is at the forefront of the Parkinson School’s research and education enterprise through intramural pilot awards, educational seminar series and training opportunities. In addition to CHIE and CHOIR , the Parkinson School serves as home to Loyola’s participation in the Institute for Translational Medicine ( ITM ). The ITM is a Clinical and Translational Science Award ( CTSA ) partnership between the University of Chicago and Rush University in collaboration with Advocate Health Care, the Illinois Institute of Technology, Loyola University Chicago, and NorthShore University Health System. The cross-institutional collaboration is fueled by almost $35 million in grants from the National Institutes of Health ( NIH ) and its National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences ( NCATS ). The ITM is part of the national network of more than 60 NIH -supported CTSA sites working on clinical informatics innovation and accelerating the time it takes to develop and implement new treatments and health innovation into practice. Collectively, these initiatives bring together research institutions, clinicians, patients, and patient advocates to implement policies and programs to improve healthcare quality and health outcomes for the region by building, strengthening, and leveraging data infrastructure and expertise.
Representative of our interdisciplinary footprint and nimble response to immediate healthcare challenges, the COVID Equity Response Collaborative: Loyola ( CERCL ) was formed to work in partnership with academic colleagues, community leaders and public health officials in minimizing COVID harm to at-risk populations in the Chicago area. CERCL instituted COVID -19 testing sites for communities without access, is conducting contact tracing, and creating resource connections for members of our surrounding Black and Brown communities.
