The Division of Biology and Biological Engineering (BBE) at Caltech is seeking new faculty in all areas of biological science and biological engineering, with particular interest in individuals who are interested in pursuing research in areas that benefit from the interdisciplinary environment of Caltech's BBE division and its linkages to other disciplines at Caltech. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to (alphabetically): biological engineering; cellular, developmental and regulatory biology; ecological and biosphere science and engineering; neural and behavioral biology; organismal and integrative biology; and virology, immunology and infectious disease.
Successful applicants are expected to develop innovative research programs and to be committed to high quality teaching. Preference will be given to candidates at the Assistant Professor level; however, well-qualified applicants at the associate or full professor level may also be considered.
