Abstract:  In this presentation, I will detail my education and career paths from a farm town in Iowa to a faculty Biostatistician at the Mayo Clinic in Arizona.  I will continue by giving a short description of my current group at Mayo Clinic, including the types of projects and workload of a typical collaborative biostatistician.  I will then discuss the hiring process at Mayo Clinic (along with other employers) as well as provide insights into the type of traits we look for in a potential candidate.  Furthermore, I will discuss the overall expectations of a collaborative faculty member at Mayo Clinic; detailing both perks and disadvantages.
