As part of a broad initiative within the Department of Child Health and Child Health Research Institute, we are recruiting for a faculty position in functional epigenomics. The work will focus on defining the interplay between epigenomics, metabolomics and/or transcriptional regulation in gestational sleep disorders and their impact on fetal and post-natal development and disease susceptibility.

The successful candidate will be involved in the generation of omics data (MeDIP, histone modifications, ChIP-seq, RNA-seq, etc) and their analysis. Candidates should have a strong background in epigenetics, genomics, metabolomics, bioinformatics, hold a doctoral degree in a relevant field, be looking for a collaborative and dynamic environment, and have a track record of productivity and innovation. Successful applicants will benefit from a highly collaborative research environment working with colleagues within several colleges at the University. Successful faculty candidates must have a Ph.D., M.D., or equivalent degree in biomedical sciences relevant to epigenetics and metabolic diseases, with evidence of peer recognition in the field, a commitment to excellence in research education and training, and the ability to engage with broader metabolic disease science themes for the purpose of achieving transformative and translational research gains.

Applicants are expected to have already established extramural research funding or be on a path to secure and sustain extramural funding in support of their research programs. Faculty recruits will be able to integrate with departments consistent with their areas of expertise and shared interests and engage in all aspects of our academic mission, including research, education and service.
