Assistant or Associate Professor – Tenure Track - Computational Genomics and Medicine 

Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the Perelman School of Medicine of the University of Pennsylvania seek candidates for an Assistant or Associate Professor position in the tenure track. The faculty search is in the general field of Computational Genomics and Medicine. We are particularly interested in candidates who creatively develop and apply computational approaches to drive biological discoveries and medical innovations, using large-scale data (e.g. genetic, multi-omic, and clinical) and harnessing cutting-edge technologies (e.g. single-cell, spatial, long-read). Computational biologists who incorporate wet lab research programs are also welcome to apply. Responsibilities include establishing and maintaining an independent, extramurally funded research program. Teaching and mentoring of graduate and medical students is an integral component of this position. Applicants must have an M.D./Ph.D or equivalent degree and have demonstrated excellent qualifications in education and research.

The position is affiliated with the Center for Computational and Genomic Medicine at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). CCGM is housed in the state-of-the-art Colket Translational Research Building. A generous recruitment package and lab space will be provided, together with excellent institutional and core research resources. The recruitment is part of a campus-wide initiative to promote innovative computational strategies for advancing human health and therapy development.

Review of applications will begin on March 15, 2021 and continue until the position is filled.
