Essential Job Duties:
As part of the Chancellor's Faculty Excellence Program (CFEP), NC State University seeks three outstanding faculty members to form a new interdisciplinary faculty cluster in High-Dimensional Integration of Biological Systems. Successful candidates will be expected to perform research at the interface of two or more existing NC State clusters, of which approximately half involve biology and medicine (https://facultyclusters.ncsu.edu). Although the positions are envisioned as appropriate for advanced Assistant or Associate Professor candidates, applications for Full Professor rank will be considered. The faculty cluster in High-Dimensional Integration of Biological Systems will provide synergy to existing clusters, and act as an intellectual home for integrative analyses across multiple sub-disciplines. The cluster seeks faculty members with expertise in the following areas:
- High-throughput organizational biology and environmental multi-scale modeling. New technologies in measuring and screening biological systems at the molecular and cellular level will foster prediction of organismal behavior from individual components, with applications including computational toxicology, predictive epidemiology and epigenetics, tissue engineering, and modeling of population dynamics.
- High-dimensional analyses. The 'omics revolution has made remarkable progress in discovering biological associations, assaying the states of cells and tissues, and assessing the state of microbial communities. However, increasing specialization limits the ability to benefit from cross-fertilization across analysis subfields. A burgeoning area in statistical methodology describes and takes advantage of emergent properties of high-dimension, low-sample size data, with profound implications for the integrative analysis of high-throughput data streams.
- 4D+ image analytics. As the ability to capture and store high resolution images and video increases, so does the need for new methods to rapidly and effectively model this multidimensional data, in order to provide novel insights into biological systems. Application areas may be as diverse as monitoring the topological landscape of a tissue or organ over time, quantifying the dynamic protrusive behavior of migrating cells in four dimensions, defining cellular properties in bio-printed 3D matrices, or localizing single molecules in a living cell.
Requires doctor’s degree, an equivalent degree, or equivalent professional experience.
Candidates should have a strong capacity to teach at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, including the capacity to mentor doctoral students and postdoctoral fellows.
For candidates at the Assistant Professor level, multiple years of faculty-level experience is strongly preferred.
Priority will be given to candidates who have demonstrated interdisciplinary collaborations that cut across academic disciplines, have supervised research personnel, and who have extensive experience in obtaining external funding, including as principal investigator.
Inclusiveness and diversity are academic imperatives and thus university goals. The University is particularly interested in candidates with experience in working with students from diverse backgrounds and who have a demonstrated commitment to improving access to higher education for students from underrepresented groups.
Required license or certification:

NC State University was founded with a purpose: to create economic, societal, and intellectual prosperity for the people of North Carolina and the country. We began as a land-grant institution teaching the agricultural and mechanical arts. Today, we’re a preeminent research enterprise that excels in science, technology, engineering, math, design, the humanities and social sciences, textiles, and v...eterinary medicine.NC State students, faculty, and staff take challenges in hand and work with industry, government, and nonprofit partners to solve them. Our 9,000 faculty and staff are world leaders in their fields, bridging the divides between academic disciplines and training high-caliber students to meet tomorrow’s challenges. Together, they forge powerful partnerships with government, industry, nonprofits, and academia to change our world for the better.NC State is leading efforts to curb nuclear proliferation, develop a smart electric grid, create self-powered health monitors, help farmers confront climate change, and build a new American manufacturing sector. Our award-winning Centennial Campus is home to more than 70 public and private partners — as well as the innovative Hunt Library, which Time magazine has dubbed “the library of the future.”More than 125 years after its creation, NC State continues to make its founding purpose a reality. Every day, our career-ready graduates and world-leading faculty make the fruits of learning and discovery available to people across the state, throughout the nation and around the world.
