Position Summary
The Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics at Princeton University invites applications for tenure-track faculty positions at the Assistant Professor Level. We are seeking outstanding scientists in the areas of bioinformatics, computational biology or biostatistics. The successful candidate would have an established track record of collaborative research with experimental biologists. We are particularly keen to recruit faculty who will extend and complement our existing strengths in bioinformatics and biostatistics.

The Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics, housed in the Carl Icahn Laboratory at Princeton University, was established to innovate in research and teaching at the interface of modern biology and the more quantitative sciences. The Institute provides significant support to its faculty through heavy investment in state-of-the-art infrastructure, an NIH-funded graduate training program, and a high level of administrative support.

Faculty positions are jointly appointed in one of the following academic departments at Princeton: Computer Science, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Physics, Chemistry, Chemical and Biological Engineering, or Molecular Biology. These joint faculty positions offer significant benefits in terms of infrastructure, research funds, and collaborative opportunities, as well as an opportunity to interact with unusually able and interdisciplinary students. The successful candidate will have research laboratories at the Institute, and teaching responsibilities (both graduate and undergraduate) will be shared between the Institute and the home department.
