The University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC) is expanding its research activities in the area of bioinformatics. We are seeking investigators at the Assistant or Associate Professor level with independent and collaborative research programs. Six to ten faculty will be recruited into tenure track positions over the next three years.

Here we are searching for investigators with expertise in the broad areas of bioinformatics, quantitative or systems biology and a research program in RNA biology. Successful candidates will hold appointments in the newly founded CBI and the RNA Center. Academic department affiliation will be determined according to the best fit. Candidates with research experience in the following areas are highly encouraged to apply: genome and transcriptome informatics, systems biology, population transcriptomics, single-cell sequencing analysis, machine learning, data mining, computational modeling, developing new computational tools for high-throughput RNA analysis and data visualization, multi-dimensional data integration of clinical and gene expression, including epigenetic data.

URMC offers attractive start-up packages and has a strong commitment to career development. The successful candidate is expected to develop a competitive research program, attract external funding, and participate in graduate education. Major recent institutional investments have created an outstanding research data–driven infrastructure, exemplified by the Health Sciences Center for Computational Innovation, and the recent $50 million University investment to build the Institute for Data Science.
