Institute for Computational Medicine (Faculty Position)
The NYU School of Medicine is hiring tenure-track faculty at the Assistant and Associate Professor levels to seed its new Institute for Computational Medicine. Headed by Itai Yanai, PhD, the Institute is a hub for computational approaches to medically-related basic science challenges, tackling systems that are vast, complex, and dynamic. Of particular focus are the fields of cancer biology, host-pathogen interactions, adaptive immune systems, and population health. Translationally important opportunities in these disciplines require integrating large and diverse datasets and modeling complex biological systems. Collaborations with clinical, basic and translational investigators across the medical center will be essential. The Institute occupies ‘wet’ and ‘dry’ space in NYU Langone Health’s new Science Building, designed to foster highly collaborative and innovative research. We seek colleagues with biologically focused research programs on topics such as:
• Big data analytics
• Systems biology
• Clinical informatics
• Evolutionary systems
• Cancer biology
• Large-scale data integration
The successful candidate will hold a primary appointment in one of the many relevant NYU School of Medicine Departments, and will have opportunities to participate in one or more graduate programs. PIs are expected to lead their own research programs as well as foster collaborations throughout NYU Langone Health.
For consideration, candidates should send a CV and research plan as a consolidated pdf. Candidates are responsible for having three recommendations sent to us by referees by application deadline. Incomplete applications will not be considered. All application materials are due by 11/1/19. Candidates selected for interviews must be available to participate in a group interview event to be held on either 1/7/20 or 2/4/20 (final date to be determined by mid-November). Please submit applications at: http://apply.interfolio.com/67265.
