The Quantitative Biology Initiative in Harvard’s Faculty of Arts and Sciences seeks candidates for a tenure-track faculty position at the rank of Assistant Professor. The QBio Initiative emphasizes novel approaches to fundamental problems in the life sciences and fosters interactions across traditional disciplinary boundaries. Candidates in any area of quantitative biology will be considered, including those taking computational, theoretical, and/or experimental approaches. We are particularly interested in candidates bringing new perspectives to our campus community who might not fit into traditional academic disciplines.
The successful candidate will hold an academic appointment in a FAS Science department and/or in the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering & Applied Sciences. Potential appointments include: Applied Math, Applied Physics, Bioengineering, Chemistry & Chemical Biology, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Materials & Mechanical Engineering, Molecular & Cellular Biology, Organismic & Evolutionary Biology, Physics, Statistics, and Stem Cell & Regenerative Biology. Faculty associated with the Initiative will have access to our multi-disciplinary research community as well facilities and opportunities for collaborative research not only through academic departments/areas but also through the Life Sciences Core facilities, the Center for Nanoscale Systems, and the Broad Institute.
Timeline: Completed applications should be received no later than October 4, 2019. Interviews will be held within the first two weeks of December 2019. Finalist(s) will return for a second visit in January/February 2020 to meet with relevant departments, chairs, and deans.
