Instructor/Assistant Professor for Systems Biology and Bioinformatics Graduate Program
Department of Nutrition/Center for Proteomics and Bioinformatics, Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine
The Systems Biology and Bioinformatics (SYBB) graduate program in the School of Medicine at Case Western Reserve University is recruiting a full time, 12-month, non-tenure track faculty member at the Instructor or Assistant Professor level. The SYBB program trains both MS and PhD students to combine experimental and computational/mathematical disciplines to understand complex biological systems. We are looking to hire a faculty member primarily to expand our current teaching portfolio and secondarily to expand our research programs. The successful candidate will assist with the teaching of current SYBB courses and will develop additional courses to employ mathematical modeling, programming, computational, or visualization approaches to the analysis of large scale biological data sets.
Candidates should have domain experience in genomics, proteomics, structural biology or related fields and be comfortable employing mathematical/computational analysis and modeling to build meaning from these data. Additional desired skills would be programming experience utilizing python or R to analyze multidimensional biological data. The ideal candidate will have a PhD (preferred) or equivalent or MS degree and possess both teaching and research experience in his/her related field.
The successful candidate’s primary responsibility will be to teach at the graduate level in the SYBB program. Additional responsibilities include developing new courses, advising/mentoring students, participation in SYBB committees and programs, and involvement in all the activities of the Department of Nutrition and the Center for Proteomics and Bioinformatics in the School of Medicine. The successful candidate will also have the opportunity to pursue collaborative research programs leading to publications in high-quality refereed journals and salary support through external funding. The department is particularly interested in candidates with research expertise in mass spectrometry, proteomics, metabolomics, microbiome, structural biology and/or computational biology.
Candidates for the rank of Assistant Professor should provide a record of their scholarly activity, the potential to advance in the field of research, and have university level teaching experience and publications in refereed journals.
Rank will be determined based on overall candidate qualifications. Secondary appointments in other departments within the University may be arranged. Salary and benefits are competitive and salary will be commensurate with experience. The anticipated starting date will be July 1 or a mutually agreed upon date.
To apply qualified applicants should send a cover letter of interest, curriculum vitae, and complete contact information for three professional references to the SYBB Program at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications will remain open until the position is filled.
