Auburn University

Assistant Professor in Bioinformatics/Computational Biology

College of Sciences and Mathematics

The Department of Biological Sciences at Auburn University invites applications for a tenure-track faculty appointment (9-month Assistant Professor) in Bioinformatics and/or Computational Biology, beginning Fall 2013. We seek candidates whose research interests expand/enhance existing strengths in life sciences at Auburn University, in particular comparative/functional/population genomics, regulation of gene expression, or molecular systematics/evolution/ecology. Those focused on developing novel computational approaches addressing core problems in environmental sustainability, food systems/safety, and other strategic areas are also encouraged to apply.

Candidates are expected to establish an extramurally funded, internationally recognized research program that actively engages and trains graduate and undergraduate students. Instructional responsibilities will include development of undergraduate/graduate courses promoting application of bioinformatic tools and computational-biology principles. The new faculty member will be housed in the Bioinformatics lab of the new Center for Advanced Science, Innovation, and Commerce (CASIC) facility at the Auburn University Research Park, and will play a role in overseeing the operation/application of a new approximately $1 million CASIC supercomputer cluster.

Applicants must have a Ph.D. in Bioinformatics, Biological Sciences, Computational Biology or a related discipline, and excellent communication/ interpersonal skills. Desired qualifications include postdoctoral or professional experience, a strong record of publication, teaching experience, and potential for funding. The candidate selected for this position must be able to meet eligibility requirements to work in the United States at the time the appointment is scheduled to begin, and continue working legally for the proposed term of employment. Women and minorities are strongly encouraged to apply.

Review of applications will begin 1 February 2013 and will continue until a suitable applicant is found. Applicants should submit (electronically) a cover letter emphasizing specific qualifications, a curriculum vitae, a description of research interests, a statement of teaching philosophy/experience, and names and contact information of at least 4 references to (Dr. Ken Halanych, Bioinformatics Search Committee Chair, Department of Biological Sciences, 101 Rouse Life Sciences Building, Auburn University, AL 36849-5407).
