Two faculty positions in Computational Biology at Cornell University
Cornell is seeking to build on its strengths in computational biology with two new tenure-track faculty positions. One position is at the Assistant, Associate or Full Professor level with a primary appointment in the Department of Computer Science. Applicants must possess a Ph.D. in computer science, or a Ph.D. in a related field and sufficient expertise in computer science to fit within a CS department. The other position is at the Assistant or Associate Professor level with a primary appointment in the Department of Biological Statistics and Computational Biology. Applicants for this position must possess a PhD in biology, computer science, statistics, or a related field, and a primary interest in understanding biological phenomena through the use of computational and statistical methods.
Cornell is committed to creative advancement of the interdisciplinary field of computational biology, and these positions come with considerable flexibility, including the possibility of joint appointments, novel space arrangements, and multiple graduate field memberships. Successful applicants in both positions will also have the opportunity to interact closely with campus-wide efforts in genome sciences, including the Cornell Center for Comparative and Population Genomics and the Center for Vertebrate Genomics.
For both positions, outstanding applicants in all areas of computational biology will be considered, but research areas of special interest include comparative and population genomics; functional genomics; gene regulation; dynamical behavior at the sub-cellular and cellular levels; networks in biological systems; and applications of machine learning to biological problems.
To ensure full consideration, applications should be received by December 1, 2011, but they will be accepted until the positions are filled. Applicants to both positions should submit a curriculum vitae and a research statement and should arrange to have three reference letters submitted. Cornell University is an equal opportunity employer and welcomes applications from women and ethnic minorities.
