Position Summary: As part of a major new initiative in Quantitative Systems Biology of Mammals, the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics at Princeton University is currently undertaking a search for faculty members at all academic ranks. The initiative will involve multiple faculty hires over the next few years. We are particularly interested in two types of candidates: (i) Outstanding mammalian biologists with a track record of innovative application of 'omics' approaches or genome manipulation methods, who have the ability and desire to collaborate with the more quantitative faculty of the Institute to develop paradigm-shifting advances, and (ii) Outstanding chemists, physicists, and computer scientists with a track record of some research of biological relevance (although perhaps no experience with mammalian systems per se) who have the ability and desire to apply their quantitative skills to transform our understanding of key mammalian processes. We will also give serious consideration to exceptional candidates who apply modern methods of analysis to non-mammalian processes of interest to the Institute. Faculty positions will be joint with one of the following academic departments at Princeton: Physics, Chemistry, Molecular Biology, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Chemical and Biological Engineering, or Computer Science. These joint faculty positions offer significant benefits in terms of infrastructure, research funds, and collaborative opportunities, as well as an opportunity to interact with unusually able and interdisciplinary students.Applications must be submitted online at:http://jobs.princeton.edu/applicants/Central?quickFind=67298 and should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a concise 1-2 page research vision statement, as well as contact information for three references. Applications will be reviewed beginning on November 1, 2015.These positions are subject to the University's background check policy.
Essential Qualifications: All applicants must have a Ph.D., M.D., or equivalent degree. In addition, applicants must have a very strong record of research productivity, demonstrate the ability to develop a rigorous research program, and be committed to teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
Princeton University is a vibrant community of scholarship and learning that stands in the nation's service and in the service of all nations. Chartered in 1746, Princeton is the fourth-oldest college in the United States. Princeton is an independent, coeducational, nondenominational institution that provides undergraduate and graduate instruction in the humanities, social sciences, natural scienc...es and engineering.
As a world-renowned research university, Princeton seeks to achieve the highest levels of distinction in the discovery and transmission of knowledge and understanding. At the same time, Princeton is distinctive among research universities in its commitment to undergraduate teaching.
Today, more than 1,100 faculty members instruct approximately 5,200 undergraduate students and 2,600 graduate students. The University's generous financial aid program ensures that talented students from all economic backgrounds can afford a Princeton education.
