Tenure-track Faculty Positions Available
Following our success in establishing and growing the Computational Biology Department within the School of Computer Science (SCS) at Carnegie Mellon University (http://www.cbd.cmu.edu), we are embarking on a major expansion in the general area of Systems Biology. We intend to make multiple tenure track hires over the next few years in this area. We are looking for researchers pursuing computational and/or experimental approaches, particularly those working on the generation and/or analysis of high throughput genomics and imaging data. We are especially interested in individuals who develop both experimental and computational/statistical approaches for studying biological systems at the molecular and cellular levels.
Appointments will be made either entirely in the Computational Biology Department or jointly with other departments in the University depending on the research focus and needs of the successful candidates (the Department of Biological Sciences has a related current search for candidates working in the area of brain-scale systems neuroscience). The Computational Biology Department has extensive strengths in methods underlying genome-based personalized medicine (genome association for complex phenotypes, dynamic network models, efficient sequence analysis), bioimage informatics (analysis and multi-scale modeling of cell and tissue organization, perturbation and differentiation), modeling and simulation of biological systems at various levels, and application of active machine learning to biological problems. New faculty members will be expected to both contribute to and benefit from the collaborative spirit that is a hallmark of Carnegie Mellon University and from opportunities to collaborate with other institutions in the Pittsburgh region. Faculty in any of the SCS departments have advising privileges for students in any of the SCS Ph.D. programs.
We particularly encourage applications from candidates who have a demonstrated track record in mentoring and nurturing female and under-represented minority students.
Applications should be submitted through the SCS faculty application system at https://webapps.cs.cmu.edu/FacultyApplication/SCS/Welcome. The application site will be open by November 1. Completed applications must be received by January 3, 2017.
