Job Opportunities

Associate/Full Professor position in Computational and Systems Biology at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine

We invite applications for a tenure-track or tenured Faculty position in the Department of Computational and Systems Biology at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. We seek creative individuals who have a record of developing cutting-edge biological and biomedical research programs, based on physical sciences, that bridge structure, morphology and spatial dynamics with (dys)functional mechanisms at molecular-to-multicellular level. The department provides an integrative and supportive research environment to engage in interdisciplinary science with ample space and facilities provided for both dry- and wet-lab work.  Cross-disciplinary research is a plus. Examples include, but not limited to: combination of computational and experimental methods for unravelling complex interactions at the molecular level and linking to systems behavior and disease phenotypes; application of quantitative systems pharmacology in precision medicine and drug discovery; integration of structural and high-throughput molecular, genomic and/or pharmacological data; quantitative modeling of cellular networks with cutting-edge methods at the interface of physical sciences, engineering and machine learning.  Strong track record of extramural funding will be viewed as a strength.

Level of appointment and salary will be commensurate with qualifications, experience and duties. The successful candidate will also join the faculty of the Joint Carnegie Mellon University–University of Pittsburgh Ph.D. Program in Computational Biology and the newly established Integrative Systems Biology Ph.D. Program.

Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, list of three referees, research statement, and teaching statement at www.csb.pitt.edu/faculty-app. Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled.

Positions in Systems Biology

The Robin E.C. Lee Lab is currently recruiting talented students, postdocs and technical staff with strong backgrounds in molecular biology and other biology sub-fields; experience in systems, synthetic or computational biology is desired but not necessary. The ideal candidates will be independently driven and detail oriented with an eagerness to learn about single cell biology and quantitative imaging. Applicants of any background with experience in applying theory to model biological systems are also encouraged to apply.

Visit the lab webpage  for more information. If you are interested in joining the group, please send an e-mail to Dr. Lee with a cover letter, CV and a list of three references. Pitt and CMU students should contact Dr. Lee directly.
