We invite applications for a tenure-track or tenured Faculty position at the Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, or Full Professor level, in the Department of Computational and Systems Biology (DCSB) at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. We seek creative individuals who can develop a cutting-edge research program and lead collaborative research initiatives on the development and use of novel computational models, physical sciences and/or engineering methodologies, machine learning algorithms and quantitative analysis and dissemination tools to address current challenges in computational and systems biology research areas and to facilitate the translation of basic research into clinical applications.
The ideal candidate will have demonstrated leadership and interdisciplinary research accomplishments in one or more of the following areas: molecular-to-cellular systems biology, including modeling complex systems structure/morphology, dynamics and function using structural, image and data from latest technology, including cryo-electron microscopy, single molecule experiments and live cell imaging; synthetic biology and novel biotechnology; translational science bridging genomics, systems biology and clinical applications; drug-or therapy-discovery and development using structure, genomics and/or systems pharmacology and applications to precision medicine; evolutionary systems biology; synthetic developmental biology including organoids, organs on a chip, and constructing multicellular systems with synthetic/engineered components. While the position requires interest and accomplishments in computational and/or theoretical biological sciences, the successful candidate may also seek to start a wet lab to investigate important problems using both computational and molecular methods.
The level of appointment and salary will be commensurate with qualifications, experience, and responsibilities. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to mentor students in multiple interdisciplinary graduate programs including the Joint Carnegie Mellon University–University of Pittsburgh Ph.D. Program in Computational Biology, the Integrative Systems Biology Ph.D. Program, and the Computational Biomedicine and Biotechnology Master’s Program. We especially seek candidates who have a documented interest in mentoring and other activities to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in our department and in general.
Applicants should email the following materials to Nancy Linderman (email@example.com): (1) a cover letter, (2) a CV, (3) a research statement, (4) a teaching and mentoring statement, (5) a statement describing the applicant’s accomplishments and plans for promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion, and (6) a list of three references from whom letters may be requested. Review of applications will begin on November 22, 2021.
