Diversity & Inclusion Statement

At NYU we are committed to inclusive excellence. Inclusion is foundational to scholarly excellence and critical to developing pathways to training for students traditionally underrepresented in the academy and/or particular disciplines. The diversity and inclusion statement offers each applicant the opportunity to highlight their past, present, and future contributions to creating inclusive excellence.

We recognize that local contexts vary across departments and disciplines and that contributions to diversity and inclusion may take many forms. Efforts to cultivate inclusive excellence might include, for example, creating opportunities for students, faculty, and staff traditionally underrepresented in the U.S. academy and/or particular disciplines; public or primary school outreach (particularly to underserved communities); contributions to the diversity of thought and perspective; efforts to increase inclusion and equity at the university or in the local community; as well as one’s own life experience.

Below are a few examples of contributions to inclusion that might be developed in a diversity & inclusion statement. These are by no means exhaustive. Your statement might expand on how you have gone about:

● Mentoring individual students, faculty or staff from diverse backgrounds

● Working with your national scholarly organization on diversity, inclusion or equity issues, or

Broadening the influence of your work for the public and enhancing underserved communities by

● Developing educational programming thru the media or social media

● Bringing results of research back to local or international communities

The candidate must meet the following requirements: (1) doctoral degree or equivalent in Biostatistics or Statistics or related field; (2) extensive experience in statistical collaboration, including the NIH grant framework; and (3) and experience in teaching or mentoring graduate or undergraduate students.

Candidates also are expected to have strong records of high quality scholarship and to have or develop active, externally-funded research programs; and a research agenda that is congruent with GPH priorities.

Applicants must submit
