TENURED OR TENURE-TRACK FACULTY: BIOLOGY

The University of Chicago: Biological Sciences Division

Location

CHICAGO, IL

Open Date

Mar 18, 2019

Description

The University of Chicago's Biological Sciences Division (BSD) in the Biological Sciences Division is searching for tenured or tenure-track faculty members at any rank, and invites applications. We seek applicants pursuing research on human-based immunology or immunogenomics, and related areas.

The successful applicant will be appointed in an appropriate BSD department and would carry out research at the interface between human immunology, functional genomics and quantitative immunobiology. Areas of interests include (but are not limited to) the study of complex immune disorders, tissue immunity, the interplay between genetics and the environment and their impact on the human immune system, and large-scale data integration to develop predictive models of how the human immune system works and can be manipulated. We expect appointees to thrive in a collaborative environment and actively seek out work with colleagues across the BSD, Physical Sciences Division and Institute for Molecular Engineering.  Appointees are expected to teach at the undergraduate and graduate level.

At The University of Chicago, we are committed to academic excellence and diversity within the faculty, staff, and student body.  The University is a vibrant center of scientific discovery and innovation, and opportunities for multidisciplinary collaboration are abundant, both within and outside the Biological Sciences Division. The Division, other academic units of the University, and the University of Chicago Medical Center, are all contained within one compact campus in Chicago’s Hyde Park.  Appointees will have access to state-of-the-art core facilities and to outstanding colleagues and graduate students affiliated with numerous degree-granting programs within and outside the biological sciences. Competitive research space and start-up funding will be available, as will the potential for interactions with our affiliates, Argonne National Laboratory and the Marine Biological Laboratory.

Qualifications
