The Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Pittsburgh invites applications for two tenure-track faculty positions in the broad areas of Computational Biology, Systems Biology, Quantitative Biology, and/or Data Science. We seek outstanding scientists who will enhance and complement existing strengths in our broad-based, collaborative biological sciences department. Candidates using any computational or quantitative approaches with a focus in biology are encouraged to apply. Research areas could include:


● Developing and applying bioinformatic, quantitative genomic, and/or systems-level approaches to the study of any biological question at any level of resolution (e.g., macromolecules, cellular components, single cells, tissues, organisms, populations, or ecosystems)
● Prediction, simulation, and/or modeling of biomolecular structures, biophysical phenomena, cellular processes, or interactions between biological entities (including species)
● Quantitative or high-throughput biological image analysis
● Deep learning, “big data,” and/or multi-omic/integrative methods to discover novel biological phenomena

The Department of Biological Sciences is a highly interactive community situated on the undergraduate campus of the University of Pittsburgh. We are dedicated to the mutual success of our faculty and students in our research, education, and outreach missions. We offer low teaching loads and highly competitive start-up, compensation, and benefits packages. The University is currently ranked third in the nation in total NIH funding and is part of a broader scientific community that includes the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and Carnegie Mellon University. Further information about the Department of Biological Sciences is available at: https://www.biology.pitt.edu.


Successful candidates will have a Ph.D. or M.D. and will be expected to establish an extramurally funded research program, train graduate students, and participate in undergraduate science education. To ensure full consideration, applications and reference letters should be received by 4 October 2021. Applicants can apply online at https://cfopitt.taleo.net/careersection/pitt_faculty_external/jobdetail.ftl?job=21006076.
