The Department of Genetics and Genomic Sciences at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, in New York, NY invites applications for multiple tenure-eligible or tenured faculty positions at the Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor levels.

Mount Sinai is ranked as one of the nation’s top biomedical institutions in research, patient care, and education. Since 2011, Mount Sinai has made major investments to attract world class expertise and build cutting-edge resources to fuel advanced research in biomedical data science and innovative technology development. Faculty recruits will be appointed in the Department of Genetics and Genomic Sciences (GGS), which is currently the 5th ranked genetics department nationally based on NIH funding. Based on work in GGS, Mount Sinai was recently recognized as the 4th most innovative data science organization in the world by Fast Company.

We seek exceptional faculty candidates with expertise in developing and/or applying advanced computational, molecular, cellular, or engineering strategies to advance functional genomics research. Candidates can focus on translation of these strategies to any area of medicine and/or disease. Relevant research directions include but are not limited to high-throughput functional genomics screening using genome editing and other technologies, in-situ transcriptomics/proteomics screening, single cell and/or spatial methods, functional genome annotation, genome graph representation and genome assembly. Another direction of interest is to integrate different types of biomedical data to gain insights on how the spectrum of genomic perturbations and associated transcriptomic and/or proteomic responses contribute to different biological processes or disease development. As biomedical research becomes an increasingly interdisciplinary science, success will require a goal-directed, team-oriented approach. We seek faculty members interested in working in a fast paced, highly collaborative environment in which interdisciplinary teams of data scientists, technology innovators, and experts in key diseases work together with the shared goal of leveraging large-scale data, coupled with applications of advanced multi-omics technologies, to predict, test, and translate novel therapies faster and more effectively.

Applicants should hold a Ph.D., M.D. or M.D./Ph.D. and are expected to develop independent research programs and participate in graduate student mentoring and teaching.
