Assistant Professor in Computational Biology (Tenure-Track)
Center for Computational and Integrative Biology, Massachusetts General Hospital
Harvard Medical School
The Center for Computational and Integrative Biology (CCIB) at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School are seeking to hire a talented and enthusiastic individual as a tenure-track Assistant Professor to lead an independent research laboratory in computational biology, systems biology or a related discipline that focuses on one or more of the following areas closely linked with experimental science within the CCIB: inflammation and autoimmunity, infectious diseases and mechanisms of host pathogen interactions, metabolism, neuroscience and cancer.
The successful applicant will be expected to develop a vigorous independent research program, secure and maintain extramural research funding, form collaborative projects with other faculty within the CCIB and participate in graduate and postdoctoral training.
• A Ph.D. in statistics, computer science, mathematics or a related discipline.
• Excellence in research demonstrated by publication record in peer-reviewed journals.
• Demonstrated potential to establish an independent research program.
• A record of extramural funding.
• Experience in collaborative or cross-disciplinary research in computational biology and/or systems biology.
• Leadership in research, instruction and/or service.
Interested candidates should send their cover letter, current curriculum vitae, proposed research plan and the contact information for three references to email@example.com by December 3, 2018.
About CCIB. We are an affiliation of faculty drawn together by a common interest in the study of biology through methods that engage a broader scale of inquiry than the existing standard of the era. Collectively, faculty research spans highly diverse topics that include the origins of life, mechanisms of host-pathogen interactions in model organisms, the relationship between atherosclerosis and inflammatory responses in vertebrates, the collection and analysis of comprehensive measures of physiology to understand the harbingers of adverse outcomes, mechanisms underlying autoimmunity, and development of genome editing technologies and their applications for biomedical research. We provide support for investigators at the hospital and across Boston through a variety of autonomous cores.
Harvard University and Massachusetts General Hospital are equal opportunity/affirmative action employers. Women and minority applicants are particularly encouraged to apply.
