United States NH Lebanon


The Department of Biomedical Data Science at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth (Geisel)
seeks two outstanding individuals to join our faculty within the Center for Technology and Behavioral
Health (CTBH). CTBH is an interdisciplinary research group whose mission is to inform the optimal
development, scientific evaluation, and sustainable implementation of digital therapeutics for behavioral
health. CTBH is a designated “Center of Excellence” by the US National Institutes of Health (NIH).
The successful candidates will be pursuing a vigorous research program focused on the use of novel
methodologies and/or data analytics in digital health as applied to behavioral health. This may include
research in adaptive and/or personalized digital therapeutic interventions for health behavior change
and/or development/refinement/application of analytic models for densely sampled intensive,
longitudinal digital health data (including data captured via mobile devices and sensing technologies).
Research focused on clinical effectiveness and/or implementation of digital health behavior-change
interventions will also be considered. Research designed to understand mechanisms of behavior change
with digital health interventions is also of interest, as are interventions focusing on addictive behaviors
and/or cancer-causing behaviors.
Successful individuals will be provided a tenure-track faculty appointment in the Department of
Biomedical Data Science at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth College commensurate with
experience. Secondary appointments in other Geisel departments may be available. Candidates who
currently hold or have experience commensurate with the rank of Assistant Professor are preferred.
Applicants for all positions must have earned a PhD and/or MD (or equivalent), have formal advanced
training in the fields described above, and should have a successful track record of peer-reviewed
publications, and a history of extramural funding. Expectations for teaching and mentoring are a critical
part of this role, and individuals will be provided with such opportunities through membership in relevant
PhD graduate programs (e.g., The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice; Program in
Quantitative Biomedical Sciences; Molecular and Cellular Biology). Training grants in relevant areas (e.g.,
Science of Co-occurring Disorders; the Burroughs Welcome training fund for Unifying Population and
Laboratory-based Sciences) are available to support trainees in areas relevant to successful candidates.
The Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth College is located in the picturesque Upper Connecticut River
Valley on the NH and VT border; a vibrant, academic and professional community offering excellent
schools, lively arts, and an unmatched quality of life in a beautiful setting. Amenities associated with urban
areas of Boston MA, Burlington VT, New York, NY, and Montreal QC are within close proximity.
