Tenure-Track Assistant Professor in Computational Biology
BioFrontiers integrates faculty from nine departments to address significant problems in biology and medicine at the interface of the biological sciences with the physical sciences, mathematics, computer science, and/or engineering (see http://BioFrontiers.colorado.edu/about). While a successful candidate could be rostered in any of our participating departments, this search will focus on candidates seeking to develop an internationally recognized research program in computational biology, with additional emphases on genomics, the microbiome, and/or network science. Successful candidates must demonstrate a strong focus on innovative computation in their research plan.
The tenure-track position is at the Assistant Professor level, although more senior candidates will also be considered. Candidates must have a Ph.D. and a demonstrated commitment to teaching at undergraduate and graduate levels. The successful candidate will hold the Marvin H. Caruthers Endowed Chair for Early Career Faculty for a period of four years, after which the Chair will be recycled to another early career faculty member.
