Assistant Professorships in Theory in Biological Physics and/or Theoretical Biochemistry
The Department of Physics & Astronomy and the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry at Arizona State University seek candidates for two tenure-track assistant professorships in theoretical/computational biological physics and/or theoretical/computational biochemistry starting August 2006. Candidates will conduct and publish research, teach graduate and/or undergraduate courses, and perform appropriate service activities. In exceptional circumstances, an appointment at a more senior level may be made. Applicants must have a Ph.D. degree in physics, chemistry, biochemistry, or a closely related discipline by the time of appointment, a strong demonstrated research experience, the potential to attract external funding, and a commitment to effective teaching appropriate to rank. Experience working in an interdisciplinary environment is desired. As part of its development plan, Arizona State University is expanding all aspects of interdisciplinary biological research, which includes the new Biodesign Institute and the School of Life Sciences. Research in this area spans the range from the most fundamental questions through biotechnology. Joint appointments as appropriate are encouraged involving departments, the Biodesign Institute, and the School of Life Sciences. Applicants must send a résumé and a statement describing their current and future research interests, and arrange to have three letters of recommendation sent on their behalf. Initial review of applications will begin on November 15, 2005, and, if the position is not filled, will continue every two weeks until the search is closed. Further information about this position can be obtained from the chair of the search committee, Michael Thorpe (email@example.com). Please send application materials to: Theory Search, ATTN: Margaret Stuart, Arizona State University, Department of Physics & Astronomy, P.O Box 871504, Tempe, AZ 85287-1504 or email materials to firstname.lastname@example.org.
