The Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania invites applications
for the position of Founding Director of the newly established Institute for Biomedical
Informatics (IBI), enabled by a recent philanthropic gift. The Institute is focused on the science
of biomedical informatics and will integrate informatics disciplines from bioinformatics to
translational, clinical, and public health informatics. The Founding Director will lead and
develop the Institute, bring together current informatics-related faculty throughout the Penn
community, and in partnership with our Department Chairs, recruit new faculty to the
Institute and the Perelman School of Medicine.
The mission of IBI is to:
• Establish an outstanding basic and applied sponsored research program in biomedical informatics,
• Recruit faculty and promote career development of biomedical informatics faculty at the Perelman School of Medicine,

The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, will tackle challenges directly relevant to patient care, as well as improve basic research that leads to more
personalized care. The Institute will also focus on educating the next generation of biomedical informaticians by incorporating a new Masters in
Biomedical Informatics degree program with the existing PhD program in Genomics and Computational Biology and by creating additional
graduate and medical training programs as the field evolves.
