Tenure-Track Cluster Hires in Bioimaging

Carnegie Mellon is in the midst of an exciting growth phase in Bioimaging science and engineering. The Computational Biology Department, Department of Biological Sciences, and Robotics Institute are therefore searching for a new tenure-track faculty member working in the general area of Bioimaging. We are interested in candidates who are acquiring, analyzing and/or modeling large imaging datasets across multiple length scales using optical and/or electron microscopy, and those doing multiplexed imaging of single cells.  CMU fosters transdisciplinary collaborative approaches to compelling societal challenges and is looking for candidates who would benefit from and contribute to an environment that fosters campus-wide multi-departmental collaborative research projects.  Appointments across  departments, which are a strongly supported part of the culture at Carnegie Mellon, are possible when appropriate.

Faculty have access to shared facilities that include a state-of-the-art animal facility, microscopy centers, high-performance computing clusters, and the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center.  Carnegie Mellon offers highly competitive salaries and start-up packages in an attractive urban environment.

A Ph.D. or M.D. degree along with postdoctoral research experience is required. This tenure-track appointment will preferably be made at the assistant professor level, but other levels may be considered.
