Faculty Search for Positions in Computational Biology


The Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Pittsburgh invites applications for two tenure-track faculty positions at the ASSISTANT PROFESSOR level, pending budgetary approval.  We seek innovative and collaborative individuals using computational approaches to understand important biological phenomena who will complement our broad-based interactive community of scientific researchers in modern biology.  Outstanding candidates in any area of computational biology are invited to apply, but those integrating computational approaches together with molecular biophysics, biochemistry, and/or functional genomics are of particular interest.


Successful candidates will have a Ph.D. and substantial postdoctoral experience and will be expected to establish an extramurally funded research program, train graduate students, and actively participate in undergraduate science education.  To ensure full consideration, applications and reference letters should be received by October 15, 2015. Applicants can apply online at: https://facultysearch.as.pitt.edu/apply/index/MTA3. Candidates should submit a letter of application, CV, a 2-3-page statement of research accomplishments and future plans, a brief description of teaching interests and at least three letters of reference. For each reference, you will have the opportunity to input a personal email address or an email address generated through Interfolio’s Online Application Delivery.  In both cases, an email notification will be sent to the designated address with instructions about uploading the letters to our system.  The University of Pittsburgh is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer and values equality of opportunity, human dignity and diversity.  Women and members of minority groups under-represented in academia are especially encouraged to apply.
