Multiple Tenure-Track Professor Positions in Computational Biology

at the University of Colorado BioFrontiers Institute

The BioFrontiers Institute at the University of Colorado Boulder is pleased to announce a new faculty hiring initiative in Computational Biology. We are building a community of scientists and engineers focused on ground-breaking research at the intersection of the biological sciences and computer science. Through a partnership of the BioFrontiers Institute and the Department of Computer Science in the College of Engineering and Applied Science, we will recruit multiple faculty at the assistant, associate and full professor ranks for tenure-track positions in computational biology, broadly defined. We seek creative, highly motivated individuals who will thrive in our interdisciplinary research environment and who will build new research collaborations across disciplines. Each new faculty member will develop an independent, internationally recognized research program that is synergistic with other programs of the University of Colorado community. We encourage applications from groups of scholars who are interested in co-locating in Boulder.

The BioFrontiers Institute integrates faculty from ten departments to address significant problems in biology and medicine at the interface of the biological sciences with computer science, mathematics, physics, chemistry, and engineering. In addition, special opportunities exist for partnerships with the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus' Biomedical Informatics and Personalized Medicine Division within the Department of Medicine.

Candidates must have a Ph.D. and a demonstrated commitment to teaching at undergraduate and graduate levels. Faculty hired through this initiative could hold a Marvin H. Caruthers Endowed Chair for Early Career Faculty for a period of three years.

Review of applications will begin on October 1, 2016. All applications received by December 1 will receive full consideration. Review of applications will continue until the positions are filled. The University of Colorado Boulder conducts background checks for all final applicants. As an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer, the University of Colorado is committed to diversity and equality in education and employment and sensitive to the needs of dual-career couples.
