Adjunct Professor Track Faculty Position - Genomics Technology

The Department of Biological Chemistry is recruiting adjunct faculty as part of a UCI initiative in genomics and precision health.

We are seeking outstanding applicants in the area of genomics technologies to manage a center for innovation in and applications of technologies applied to samples for genomics analysis from inside and outside the UCI community. These samples are anticipated to require technologies ranging from exome or genome sequencing to optical mapping on a range of scales, single-cell and bulk transcriptome sequencing and primary analysis, epigenome, and multi-ome analyses, and spatial transcriptomics.

Responsibilities will include training staff, advising users, and implementing successful workflows. Successful candidates will be responsible for lecturing in graduate level courses; providing monthly lectures to physician scientists in UCIMC; organizing bimonthly wet lab classes; and providing lectures on genomics technology in the annual Complex Biological Systems Bootcamp for incoming graduate students in Molecular and Cellular Biology and Mathematical, Computational and Systems Biology. Candidates will be responsible for maintaining a high performance of the testing laboratory based on rigorous training of staff for performance and efficiency, ability to encourage teamwork, ability to work with clients ranging from students to faculty, and attention to and implementation of innovations in genomics research. This high level of performance must be based on awareness of developments in the field of genomics and technical level of understanding of each of the assays in the facility and rooting in statistics sufficient to guide users in the strategic decisions related to experimental design. The candidate will be expected to demonstrate research skills with respect to technology innovation and implementation and to have collaborative publications. Although not required to have PI status, successful individuals must demonstrate substantive contributions to research grants through funding, co-authorships, providing source documentation, and acknowledgments.

Location of work may accommodate some hybrid format but be generally on site, as is appropriate for fulfillment of these responsibilities. Appointments will be in the School of Medicine and candidates may be eligible to participate in the comp plan when their appointment is at 51% or greater. Starting appointments are for one year.

We are dedicated to increasing the participation of under-represented racial and ethnic minorities as well as women in STEM fields, and particularly encourage applications from these groups.

Founded in 1965, UC Irvine combines the strengths of a major research university with the bounty of an incomparable Southern California location. Over five remarkable decades, UCI has become internationally recognized for efforts that are improving lives through research and discovery, fostering excellence in scholarship and teaching, and engaging and enriching the community.UC student center

With more than 33,000 students, 1,200 faculty members and 10,000 staff, UCI is among the fastest-growing campuses in the University of California system. Increasingly a first-choice campus for students, UCI ranks among the top U.S. universities in the number of undergraduate applications and continues to admit freshmen with highly competitive academic profiles. Orange County’s second-largest employer, UCI generates an annual economic impact on the county of $5 billion.

UCI is a center for quality education that honors classic instruction while incorporating the best new scholarship. U.S. News & World Report consistently ranks UCI among the nation’s best universities. Achievements in the sciences, social sciences, social ecology, arts, humanities, medicine and business also have garnered numerous national rankings for UCI’s schools, departments and programs. Three UCI researchers have won Nobel Prizes – most recently Irwin Rose, in chemistry, in 2004.

Interdisciplinary research, a UCI hallmark, is evident in the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology, or Calit2, Newkirk Center for Science and Society, Center for the Study of Democracy, Institute of Transportation Studies, Institute for Genomics and Bioinformatics, and innovative instructional programs in biomedical engineering, international studies, global cultures, arts and technology, and other collaborations.

The university is dedicated to excellence through diversity and to the goal of reflecting equity and inclusion in our faculty, staff and student populations. Faculty and staff diversity affinity groups foster cross-departmental social interaction, professional networking, cultural competencies, recruiting and mentoring.

Committed to the Community

UCI reaches beyond the classroom and laboratory to help solve societal issues and support human development. In the health sciences, UCI is noted for its research on cancer, the neurosciences and the genetic underpinnings of disease. UCI Medical Center, Orange County’s only university hospital and Level I trauma center, has been ranked among the nation’s best hospitals by U.S. News & World Report for 16 consecutive years.

UC Irvine parkA major intellectual and cultural center, UCI engages the community through public activities and events. Speakers on campus, for example, have included Nobel Peace Prize winners His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama, former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev and Iranian human rights activist Shirin Ebadi, all of whom also received the UCI Citizen Peacebuilding Award for their efforts toward world peace.

The university is also addressing the needs of the community and growing world population in an environmentally sustainable way. From the development of new and reliable processes for electricity and alternative fuels to critical water and waste management solutions, UCI consistently tops the list in Sierra magazine’s “Coolest Schools” report, its annual sustainability ranking of U.S. colleges and universities.  

A hub for innovation and entrepreneurship, the university collaborates with the community on many strategic partnerships such as UCI Applied Innovation , a center which brings campus-based discoveries together with Orange County’s vibrant business sector to support job creation and economic growth. Development also continues on the 185-acre University Research Park adjacent to campus, where R&D companies enjoy collaborative opportunities in medical research, biotechnology, engineering, computer science and business.

UCI is benefiting the community and the world in countless ways through its scholarly, scientific, creative and economic contributions. On its way to becoming a flagship UC campus and one of the nation’s very best universities, UCI has embarked on a strategic plan that will ensure the campus continues to inspire excellence as it fulfills its research, teaching and public service missions in the decades ahead.
