Faculty Positions in Genomics, Bioinformatics, Statistical Genetics
University of Oregon
The Departments of Biology (http://biology.uoregon.edu) and Mathematics (http://math.uoregon.edu) at the University of Oregon announce a cluster hire of up to three tenure-related faculty positions in Fall 2013. One of these positions may be at the level of Associate or Full Professor with indefinite tenure. These hires are part of an integrated effort to strengthen research and scholarship at the nexus of statistics/mathematics and biology at the University of Oregon, and will serve as a catalyst for future growth in this area. We are broadly interested in recruiting candidates working in areas developing statistical methodology related to the life sciences. Examples of these areas include, but are not limited to, statistical analysis of large data sets, algorithms for analyzing sequence data, and stochastic models for neuroscience, population genomics and molecular evolution. Successful candidates will bolster our emerging strengths in biomathematics, maintain an outstanding research program that focuses on solving core problems in this area, and have a commitment to excellence in teaching. Ph.D. required. Position responsibilities include undergraduate teaching.
Interested persons should apply online to the MATHBIO SEARCH, University of Oregon at https://www.mathjobs.org/jobs/jobs/4035. Applicants should submit a cover letter, a curriculum vitae including a publication list, a statement of research accomplishments and future research plans, a description of teaching experience and philosophy, and three letters of recommendation. Ideally the research description and at least one of the letters of recommendation would include descriptions of the statistical/mathematical tools or models used in the applicant’s research. To ensure consideration, application materials should be uploaded by November 15, 2012, but the search will remain open until the positions are filled.
