Open Rank Faculty Position - Quantitative and Computational Developmental Biology
Cluster Hire in Quantitative and Computational Developmental Biology
North Carolina State University
The Chancellor’s Faculty Excellence Program (http://workthatmatters.ncsu.edu) at NC State University seeks an outstanding candidate for an open rank faculty position to expand the new faculty cluster in Quantitative and Computational Developmental Biology (https://qcdb.ncsu.edu/).
Together with NC State’s existing strengths in quantitative/computational sciences and engineering, this interdisciplinary cluster is propelling NC State to the forefront of efforts to define new principles in developing biological systems. Recruiting for the cluster was initiated in 2015 and has resulted in four hires (https://facultyclusters.ncsu.edu/clusters/modeling-the-living-embryo/).
Successful candidates will engage in transformative research that integrates expertise in biological, biophysical, computational, and/or mathematical methods to investigate dynamic phenomena in animal or plant development on any level. We are particularly interested in individuals who can bridge experiment and theory. Applicants whose expertise is mainly in the computational realm are also encouraged to apply.
Priority will be given to individuals with demonstrated successful collaboration as a member of an interdisciplinary and/or multidisciplinary team.
Interested candidates should submit 1) a cover letter describing their prior interdisciplinary and/or multidisciplinary research efforts and how their research addresses the goals of the cluster (https://qcdb.ncsu.edu/); 2) a CV; 3) a 2-3 page research plan; 4) contact information for 3 references.
For more information or to apply, please visit https://jobs.ncsu.edu/postings/96124. Review of applications will begin immediately (April 2021) and will continue until the position is filled.
