Faculty Position - Bioinformatics

Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC) seeks candidates for Assistant and Associate Professor position in the tenure and research tracks for Precision Informatics. CCHMC is the leading pediatric research facility in the nation and ranks at the top of pediatric medical centers globally with respect to external funding and research accomplishments. Position will be within the Department of Pediatrics and affiliated with the Department of Biomedical Informatics in the College of Medicine at the University of Cincinnati. The Division, the first and largest group of informatics faculty focused on child health, has established world-class bioinformatics, computational and data support, and educational programs at Cincinnati Children’s and the University of Cincinnati. This environment provides rich collaborative opportunities in basic molecular science, developmental biology, statistical genetics, genetic epidemiology, multi-omics, personalized medicine, and biomedical informatics.

We are seeking candidates with expertise in areas such as computational biology, multi-omics, statistical genetics, genome-enabled medicine, and systems biomedicine. Possible areas of research include, but are not limited to, multi-omics and integration of disparate data types, single-cell profiling and cell atlas development, pathway and regulatory network analysis, genomic analysis of complex disorders, molecular interaction prediction, and developing innovative molecular analysis methods and tools. Responsibilities include establishing an independent research program in methodological and/or applied research focused on pediatric medicine, actively participating in the Department’s educational mission and training programs, and synergizing with the Department’s bioinformatics support services. Opportunities for informatics research in lifespan and adult medicine exist through CCHMC’s strong collaborative relationship with the College of Medicine.

The successful candidate will have a Ph.D. and/or M.D. with substantial formal training in both data and life sciences or closely related fields. A demonstrated record of high-quality peer-reviewed publications and the ability to successfully compete for grant funding are essential. Preference will be given to candidates with experience in successful research project execution; creativity, independence, and high motivation; experience in managing and mentoring professional research staff and/or trainees in a research environment; excellent project management and communications skills; and proven ability to work collaboratively in multidisciplinary teams.
