Computational Biology Department Seeking New Teaching Faculty
As a result of growth in educational programs within the Computational Biology Department, the department is looking to hire a new Assistant Teaching Professor for fall 2020. This candidate will begin by teaching two laboratory courses aimed at undergraduate and Ph.D. computational biology and computer science students: 02-261: Quantitative Cell and Molecular Biology Laboratory and 02-760: Laboratory Methods for Computational Biologists. These courses teach students about the interface between the generation of biological data in the wet-lab and the computational techniques needed to design experiments and analyze the resulting data. As such, the courses are very forward-looking, and a candidate should feel comfortable working to keep the content modern and suitable for computational students.
This position is a full-time Teaching Track faculty position. At Carnegie Mellon University, Teaching Track faculty hold career-oriented positions with initial appointments lasting three years, and they are involved in advising and administration outside of the classroom.
Interested candidates should apply via Interfolio. Applications will be accepted until March 1, 2020.
