Title: Open Rank Faculty Computational Medicine
Department: Pharmacology
Department: Genetics

Position Summary:  The Computational Medicine Program and the Departments of Pharmacology and Genetics at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC-CH) invite applicants for two tenure-track faculty positions in Computational Medicine. The Computational Medicine Program at UNC-CH is a recently established research initiative that seeks to integrate modern computational approaches, including mathematical modeling, machine learning, computational genomics, 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 and/or genomics to investigate molecular processes 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 holds a position within either the Department of Genetics or 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 on October 15 and continue until the positions are filled.

Minimum education and experience requirements:  A Ph. D. or equivalent degree is required in Genetics, Pharmacology, Computational Biology, Computer Science, Statistics, Mathematics or related field. The successful candidates will have significant research experience applying computational approaches to problems in biomedical research. While postdoctoral experience is not required, 3-6 years of postdoctoral research is typical. Current Assistant and associate professors are also welcome to apply.

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.
