The Departments of Biology, Mathematics, and Computer and Information Sciences at the University of Oregon announce a cluster of three tenure track faculty positions in computational and/or mathematical biology focusing within the areas of computational genomics, bioinformatics, and statistical genetics. We seek candidates applying quantitative approaches to address fundamental questions in genetics, cell biology, molecular biology, development, microbiology, neuroscience, evolution, ecology and/or human health. One of the positions may be at the full or associate professor level, with the others at the assistant professor level. These positions are part of a growing initiative aimed at creating a new research and training program in the computational sciences across multiple disciplines on campus, including a new $5 million high performance computing facility.
Successful candidates will have an appointment in one or more of the host departments and may join one of the interdisciplinary research institute on campus, which include the Institute of Molecular Biology, the Institute of Ecology and Evolution, the Institute of Neuroscience, and the Prevention Science Institute as appropriate. Depending on their interests, candidates may choose to affiliate with other ongoing research programs including the META Center for Host-Microbe Systems Biology and the Center for Genome Function, Integrated Analysis of Biological Networks, and Neurons to Minds cluster initiatives. One of the positions will specifically focus on human genomics in affiliation with our Health Promotion and Obesity Prevention Initiative.
Minimum qualifications for candidates are a Ph.D. in an appropriate field, commitment to excellent teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and an outstanding research record. Candidates should have the ability to work effectively within a diverse community. Interested persons should apply online to the University of Oregon GENOMICS search at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/8211. Candidates are asked to 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 (sent independently). Submission of 1-3 selected reprints is encouraged. To be assured of consideration, application materials should be uploaded by November 15, 2016, but the positions will remain open until filled. Requests for more information can be sent to Dr. Patrick Phillips, Chair, Genomics search (firstname.lastname@example.org).
