The newly formed Computational Medicine Program at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC-CH) invites applicants for two tenure-track faculty positions in Computational Medicine. The Computational Medicine Program at UNC-CH is a newly established research initiative that seeks to integrate modern computational approaches, including mathematical modeling, machine learning, and network analysis, with cutting-edge experimental techniques to address problems relevant to human health. While the area of study is flexible, an ideal candidate would apply methods from systems biology to investigate the molecular mechanisms dysregulated in human diseases, and to eventually develop predictive models of these disease states. Each recruit will hold a position, and research laboratory space, within the Computational Medicine Program, and also hold a position within a Department; these two searches include joint recruitments with the Department of Pharmacology, and a separate search with the Department of Genetics
The successful candidate will be expected to direct an independent research program supported by extramural funding, and participate in team science projects initiated through the Computational Medicine Program. The successful candidate will also participate in graduate student mentoring and teaching at the graduate level.

Educational Requirements

Doctoral Degree and 3-6 years of postdoctoral experience in pharmacology, genetics, computational/mathematical biology, biophysics or a related field.

Qualifications and Experience

Strong training and experience in applying computational and quantitative approaches to problems in biomedical research. It is anticipated that some candidates may be entirely computational, while others will incorporate an experimental component into their research; both types are eligible and encouraged to apply.

Equal Opportunity Employer

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to age, color, disability, gender, gender expression, gender identity, genetic information, national origin, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, or status as a protected veteran.
