Mechanobiology Institute (MBI), jointly with the Department of Biological Sciences (DBS) and the Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME), at the National University of Singapore (NUS) invites applications for multiple tenure-track faculty positions at all levels. We seek candidates committed to collaborative interdisciplinary research in areas of the mechanobiology of aging, degeneration, regeneration, stem cells and organoids, and immune cell functions. Exceptional research programs in other areas, such as mechano-medicine and cancer mechanobiology, or advanced methodology development in imaging, nanotechnology, computing, or diagnostics, will also be considered. Successful applicants will hold a Principal Investigator position at MBI, with a joint tenure-track faculty appointment at either DBS or BME, and can expect internationally competitive salary and benefits, core research infrastructure support, and generous start-up packages.
MBI is a leading multi-disciplinary institute devoted to new paradigms for understanding biological functions in health and disease from the perspective of cell, tissue and organ mechanics/dynamics and mechano-signal transduction. The Institute operates on a fully integrated open-lab platform, with extensive core-facility support dedicated to state-of-the-art technologies in light microscopy, nano- and micro-fabrication, protein expression and cloning, and computing. More details about MBI can be found at mbi.nus.edu.sg. Both DBS and BME at NUS hold high global rankings in cutting-edge research and education at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. More details about DBS and BME can be found at www.dbs.nus.edu.sg and www.eng.nus.edu.sg/bme.
Candidates should hold a Ph.D. degree in relevant fields, with demonstrated excellence in research and experience in teaching. For accelerated consideration, application materials, including a cover letter, Curriculum Vitae with full publication list, 2 to 3-page research interest and plan, a teaching statement, and contact details of 4 referees for Assistant Professor candidates and 6 for Associate and Full Professor candidates, should be submitted to the Faculty Recruitment Committee via email at firstname.lastname@example.org by July 15, 2019. Late applications will also be considered until the positions are filled.
