Course Director for Biostatistical Methods for Clinical Research I (BIOSTAT 200)

Biostatistical Methods for Clinical Research I is the introductory course in the Biostatistics series for the Training in Clinical Research (TICR) Program. The 3-unit course covers types of data, their summarization, exploration, and explanation. The course also looks at concepts of probability and their role in explaining uncertainty and concludes with coverage of inference applied to means, proportions, regression coefficients, and contingency tables. Throughout the course, both R and Stata are used. The course takes place annually in the Fall Quarter and draws students from the TICR Program, Epidemiology and Translational Science PhD Program, and other graduate degree-level programs at UCSF. Weekly course activities include pre-recorded lectures, live computer laboratory sessions, and homework assignments. 

The prospective course director should be an expert in biostatistical methods and proficient in the use of Stata and R for basic biostatistical analysis. The applicant should have a passion for excellence in teaching.
