TWO Faculty Positions in Computational Biology

The Department of Biology and Biochemistry at the University of Houston invites applications for two tenure-track faculty positions at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor. For the first position, we seek individuals with interests in computational genetics, functional genomics, or transcriptional regulation. Individuals that integrate computational and experimental approaches or work in nonmammalian model systems are especially welcome. For the second position, we seek individuals incorporating computational approaches to macromolecular structure and interaction, metabolomics, or drug discovery. We also encourage applications from researchers pursuing molecular modeling in fundamental or translational contexts. Successful applicants will incorporate computational approaches to advance research interests that complement existing departmental strengths in structural biology, developmental and stem cell biology, regenerative medicine, cancer biology, nucleic acid biochemistry, and genomics.

The position requires a Ph.D. and significant relevant academic experience. Faculty members are expected to establish and maintain nationally competitive externally funded research programs and to participate in graduate and undergraduate teaching. The Department of Biology and Biochemistry has state-of-the-art laboratory space, well-equipped core facilities, and high-performance computing resources. Broad opportunities exist for research collaborations within the University of Houston as well as at nearby institutions. Interested applicants should submit a curriculum vitae with names and contact information for three references, research plan, one-page statement of teaching interests, and cover letter to: ( (register at this site and search faculty openings for FAC001209).

The University of Houston, with one of the most diverse student bodies in the nation, seeks to recruit and retain a diverse community of scholars. In the cover letter, applicants should state how their experiences and/or planned future activities will contribute to the advancement of diversity and inclusion in the context of teaching, research, or community engagement. Alternatively, this information can be provided in a separate statement.

Review of applications will begin by November 15, 2019 and continue until the position is filled.
