We are seeking an Assistant Professor in the field of Computational
Systems Biology. Research should be in systems biology, using
computational approaches or a combination of both experimental and
computational approaches.

Assistant Professor. Appointment and salary will be competitive and
commensurate with accomplishments.

University of California, Riverside.

The successful candidate will hold an academic appointment in the
Department of Botany and Plant Sciences with the option of a secondary
cooperating faculty appointment in a quantitative department such as
statistics, computer science, engineering or related. The candidate will
also join the innovative and multidisciplinary Institute for Integrative
Genome Biology (IIGB) which connects theoretical and experimental
researchers from different departments in Life, Physical and
Mathematical Sciences, Medicine, Engineering and various campus based
Centers. The IIGB is organized around a 10,000 sq.ft. suite of
Instrumentation Facilities that serve as a centralized, shared­use
resource for faculty, staff and students, offering advanced tools in
bioinformatics, microscopy, proteomics and genomics. Its bioinformatic
component is equipped with a modern high­performance compute (HPC)
infrastructure. This position will include an appointment in the
Agricultural Experiment Station, which incl udes the responsibility to
conduct research and outreach relevant to the mission of the California
Agricultural Experiment Station (http://cnas.ucr.edu/about/anr/).

A Ph.D. in a field related to systems biology is required including
several years of postdoctoral research.

Qualified candidates are expected to have excellent publication and
research records in computational systems biology or related areas, such
as bioinformatics or computational genome biology. The candidate’s
research program should be heavily focused on involving modern
high­throughput data, especially from next generation sequencing
technologies. An additional requirement is a strong commitment to
teaching in computational systems biology.

Review of applications will begin November 7, 2014 and continue until
the position is filled. Interested individuals should: (1) submit a
curriculum vitae, (2) provide a statement of research, and (3) three
letters of reference. A teaching statement is strongly recommended.
