The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania seeks candidates for an Assistant Professor position in the tenure track. The successful applicant will have experience in the field of Computational Biology with a focus on RNA bioinformatics. Responsibilities include developing an independent research program that is synergistic with the scientific interests of the division of Neuropathology and of the Department of Pathology, especially as they relate to RNA biology, and participating in graduate and medical school education. Applicants must have a Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. degree and have demonstrated excellent qualifications in research and education.

The successful candidate should interface with strong, ongoing programs into basic and translational investigations of RNA processing and function, RNA binding proteins, small RNAs and Ribonucleoproteins. We seek candidates with deep expertise in developing sophisticated tools and analyses for RNA-related informatics, including CLIP-Seq, RNA-Seq, Ribo-Seq, to address fundamental biological questions of gene expression regulation and dysregulation. The successful applicant must have a clear record of productivity and creativity during their post-doctoral training, and high likelihood of developing an independent, cutting edge program in RNA informatics.

We seek candidates who embrace and reflect diversity in the broadest sense.
