Summary of Opportunity

The Fels Institute for Cancer Research & Molecular Biology at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University invites applications for a non-tenure track faculty appointment at the level of Assistant Professor. The Fels Institute for Cancer Research & Molecular Biology has a vibrant and interdisciplinary research program focused on understanding the molecular mechanisms of various human diseases.

The successful applicant should have a PhD and/or MD and postdoctoral research experience in the field of bioinformatics and computational biology with special focus on genomics and the regulation of gene and protein expression and modification.

The prospective candidate is expected to lead the Fels Institute bioinformatics core, which provides data analysis support for multiple laboratories. To this end, the prospective candidate is expected to have knowledge of next generation sequencing, including RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, exome sequencing, and high-throughput DNA methylation data. Of particular interest are candidates who are using cutting-edge techniques in computational biology.

The prospective candidate should also be familiar with bioinformatic analysis of mass spectrometric data for protein identification and quantitation, including post-traslational modifications (PTMs), protein and PTM data mining, and integration of proteomics data with annotation databases (Gene Ontology and PFAM) to identify enrichment of biological process, functions, cellular components and/or protein domains. In addition, the candidate should also be familiar with mapping of protein and/or PTMs to networks/pathways using platforms such as STRING and/or IPA.

We encourage applications from candidates whose research interests focus on the study on these areas and will be able to adopt emerging analysis tools aimed at the functional characterization of genes and proteins.

The successful candidate is expected to have publications in respectable peer reviewed journals, excellent interpersonal skills, and experience in writing federal and/or foundation grants. Experience in mentoring undergraduate and graduate students would be an asset.
