Posting Detail Information

Position Title Assistant Professor - Physics/Bioengineering Requisition Number FTFR001187 Division/College College of Science Interdisciplinary Division/College College of Engineering Location Boston Main Campus Full-time/Part-time Full Time Benefits Eligible Yes Tenure Status Tenured/Tenure Track Posting Date 10/16/2018 Responsibilities

The Departments of Physics and Bioengineering at Northeastern University invite applications for an Assistant Professor level position in Theoretical Biological Physics to begin Fall 2019. This search focuses on the application of theoretical and computational methods to the understanding of living systems. Specific subareas to be considered include (but are not limited to): systems biology modeling; cellular and multicellular mechanics; genome structure and its functional consequences; morphogenesis and developmental biology; computation by biological networks including the dynamics of immunity and the neural system; and evolutionary/ecological processes. We seek individuals who can develop and apply innovative approaches to unravel unsolved mysteries of the living state both at the single cell and multicellular scales and who can thereby develop successful strategies to perturb that state for biomedical or biotechnological purposes. The individual hired for this position will become a member of whichever of these two departments is deemed most appropriate and will interact with the strong research groups in this area already present at Northeastern and its neighboring institutions.


Applicants are expected to have a Ph.D. in Physics, Bioengineering or a closely related field prior to the start date. Candidates must have at least one year postdoctoral experience in an appropriate area of theoretical biological physics. Individuals who already have tenure-track faculty positions may apply and be considered for an advanced assistant professor level slot.
