Primary Purpose of Organizational Unit
The Computational Medicine Program and Department of Pharmacology at the
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC-CH) invite applicants for a
tenure-track faculty position 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.
The successful candidate will hold a position, and research laboratory space,
within the Computational Medicine Program, and also hold a position within the
Department of Pharmacology. They 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. Applicant reviews will begin November 1.
Minimum Education and Experience Requirements
Doctoral Degree and 3-6 years of postdoctoral experience in pharmacology,
computational/mathematical biology, biophysics or a related field.
Preferred Qualifications, Competencies, 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.
Special Physical/Mental Requirements
Campus Security Authority Responsibilities
Please upload your C.V., cover letter, research statement, and list of at
