FACULTY POSITIONS IN COMPUTATIONAL BIOLOGY
The College of Science at Virginia Tech (http://www.cos.vt.edu), in cooperation with the Institute for Critical Technology and Applied Science (ICTAS, http://www.eng.vt.edu/ictas/) and the Institute for Biomedical and Public Health Sciences (IBPHS http://www.ibphs.vt.edu/), is seeking to strengthen research in COMPUTATIONAL SCIENCE through interdisciplinary faculty hires. As part of this initiative, the Department of Biological Sciences (http://www.biol.vt.edu/) anticipates filling one or more tenure-track positions at the junior and/or senior level. We encourage applications from individuals with demonstrated expertise in theoretical and computational methods applied to the following areas of biology: COMPUTATIONAL CELL BIOLOGY, particularly deriving the physiological properties of cells (such as signaling, motility, growth and division) from underlying molecular regulatory networks, at the level of gene, proteins, and metabolites; COMPUTATIONAL ASPECTS OF INFECTIOUS DISEASES, particularly the mechanisms of host-pathogen interactions at the molecular level or population level; and ECOSYSTEM DYNAMIC MODELING, particularly the spatial and temporal dynamics of nutrient transformations in aquatic or terrestrial ecosystems, or at the aquatic/terrestrial interface. The successful applicants must have an earned doctorate in biological, physical or mathematical sciences. Applications must be submitted online at https://jobs.vt.edu/. The application package should include a cover letter, resume, and a statement of research interests. Applicants should arrange for (at least) three letters of recommendation to be submitted directly to: Chair, Computational
Biology Search Committee, Department 0406. Review of applications will begin Virginia Tech is an EO/AA university. application process should notify Melissa
of Biological Sciences, Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, VA 24061- on December 1, 2005, and continue until the positions are filled. Individuals with disabilities desiring accommodations in the Simpkins, (540) 231-4033, or call TTY 1-800-828-1120.
University of Kentucky
The University of Kentucky Center for Biomedical Engineering is expanding its current foci in biomaterials/biomechanics and systems physiology. The Center invites applications from outstanding individuals to fill three junior to mid-level tenure-track/tenured positions. These faculty members will be expected to develop distinguished research programs and contribute to teaching and mentoring within the Center’s graduate program. Of particular interest are investigators in the areas of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine applied to connective, cardiovascular, or neural tissues; integrative and translational research focused on molecular or cellular aspects of cardiopulmonary or nervous system diseases; and
image processing, including imaging of molecular and cellular processes.
Especially desirable are
investigators seeking to develop multi-investigator, interdisciplinary research programs that complement existing faculty in the Center and who will collaborate with other researchers both inside and outside the University. New faculty members will benefit from the close proximity of the Colleges of Agriculture, Arts & Sciences, Dentistry, Engineering, Medicine, and Pharmacy and of the UK Hospital, all within a five minute walk.
Applicants should submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae, a statement of research and teaching interests, and contact information for at least three references. Materials can be sent either electronically to email@example.com or by postal mail to:
