Faculty Cluster Hire in Genomics and Human Genetics

Duke University seeks up to seven exceptional, collaborative, and creative scientists to join its faculty in tenure/tenure-track positions. We invite applications from researchers with an outstanding track record in developing and applying statistical, computational, or experimental approaches to cutting-edge problems in genomics and human genetics.

Candidates should hold a PhD or equivalent degree in a quantitative or experimental discipline. We are particularly interested in scientists working in evolutionary/population genomics, functional genomics, genome technology development, medical genetics, and statistical/computational genomics.

We strongly encourage applications from scientists with a demonstrated interest in collaborative research. Successful candidates will synergize with existing strengths at Duke in medicine, engineering, environmental sciences, and basic sciences. As such, successful candidates may have their academic home in any suitable department within the Schools of Medicine, Engineering, Environment, and Art & Sciences (including departments not traditionally associated with genomics and human genetics such as Mathematics, Physics, Statistics, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Biomedical Engineering). Secondary appointments, joint appointments, or affiliations may be arranged in other departments, schools, and centers as appropriate.

The collaborative nature of these positions will provide successful candidates with access to exceptional resources, including substantial cluster computing infrastructure, strong core facilities, a diverse set of large biomedical datasets, and multidisciplinary partnerships.

Interested applicants should submit materials (cover letter, CV, and a statement of research accomplishments and interests) and ask three referees to submit reference letters at Further inquiries may be directed to Review of applications will begin on November 15, 2016.
