The Program in Bioinformatics and Integrative Biology invites applications for tenure-track or senior tenured professor positions. We are seeking innovative, energetic, and collaborative individuals who plan to develop strong computational research programs to tackle problems in one of the following areas: regulatory genomics, comparative genomics, systems biology, RNA biology, evolutionary biology, statistical genetics, or proteomics. Candidates in all computational biology areas, especially statisticians and computer scientists focused on biological questions, are strongly encouraged to apply. Wet bench research space can be arranged for individuals who are interested in performing experiments to augment their computational efforts. Salary and start-up package will be highly competitive and commensurate with the high level of accomplishment expected of successful applicants.

The Program in Bioinformatics and Integrative Biology is housed in the new state-of-the-art Albert Sherman building, where it is part of a vibrant and collaborative research community that includes the Program in Systems Biology and the RNA Therapeutics Institute on the same floors. Other closely collaborating departments, including the Department of Molecular, Cell and Cancer Biology, Program in Molecular Medicine, and Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Pharmacology, are located in neighboring buildings. The Program is supported by high-performance computing facilities.

Applicants should submit a cover letter explaining their interest in the Program, a curriculum vitae that includes publications, honors, and a succinct research plan. To expedite the review process, applicants should invite three individuals who are familiar with your work, and potential for success, to upload their recommendation letters at the same web address.
