Yale University: Assistant Professor, Quantitative Biology

Department of Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology

The Department of Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology (MCDB) at Yale University invites applications for a tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level to commence July 1, 2018. This position is part of an expansion in the area of Quantitative Biology, which includes the planned formation of an Institute for Quantitative Biology, housed in a newly-constructed facility located on Science Hill in Yale’s Central Campus, adjacent to departments representing biology, physics, and chemistry.

The Department encourages applications from candidates using theoretical and/or experimental approaches to study any biological system, ranging from microbes to multicellular organisms. The broad research interests of the MCDB faculty include computational and theoretical biology, biophysics, molecular and chemical biology, cellular and developmental biology, microbiology, genetics, neurobiology, plant sciences, and biotechnology.

We expect the successful candidate will establish an active research group, be an interactive member of the faculty and participate in interdisciplinary research and training. They will engage in graduate and undergraduate teaching in part within the MCDB Quantitative Biology Track, which teaches students how to combine predictive mathematical modeling with quantitative experiments. Communication skills conducive to excellence in interdisciplinary research and teaching are necessary.

Candidates must have a Ph.D. or equivalent degree in a relevant discipline and a record of outstanding research that demonstrates originality in the field of Quantitative Biology.

Applicants should create a profile at apply.interfolio.com/43660 and upload a statement of research plans (up to 3 pages), curriculum vitae, and up to five reprints of published work. Applicants should also arrange for three references to upload their letters of recommendation. The review of applications will begin on October 20, 2017 and will continue until the position is filled. To ensure full consideration, please submit all materials by November 10, 2017.
