Position Summary

The Computational Medicine Program (http://www.med.unc.edu/compmed/) and the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC-CH) invites applicants for two tenure-track faculty positions. Appointments are expected to be made at the level of assistant professor, but exceptionally well qualified candidates of higher rank will also be considered. The Computational Medicine Program is a newly established research initiative that seeks to apply modern computational approaches, including mathematical and statistical modeling, machine learning and network analysis, to address problems relevant to human health and disease. While the specific area(s) of study are flexible, candidates are expected to have interest and experience in applying methods from statistics, applied mathematics, and/or computer science to investigate mechanisms of human diseases, with the goal of impacting diagnosis and treatment. Each recruit will maintain a position and research space within the Computational Medicine Program at the UNC School of Medicine and also hold a full-time faculty appointment within the College of Arts and Sciences in one of the following departments: Computer Science (https://cs.unc.edu/), Statistics and Operations Research (https://stat-or.unc.edu/), or Mathematics (https://math.unc.edu/).
The successful candidate will be expected to direct an independent research program supported by extramural funding and to participate in team science projects initiated through the Computational Medicine Program. The successful candidate will also participate in student mentoring and teaching at the undergraduate and graduate level through their home department. An excellent start-up package and access to departmental and institutional facilities will be provided, including access to the exceptional computational resources (https://its.unc.edu/research-computing/) at UNC-CH.

Educational Requirements

Candidates should have a PhD in statistics, mathematics, computer science or a related field. Postdoctoral experience applying computational approaches to biomedical research is desirable, but not required.

Qualifications and Experience

Strong training and experience in applying computational and quantitative approaches to problems. 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.

Equal Opportunity Employer

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to age, color, disability, gender, gender expression, gender identity, genetic information, national origin, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, or status as a protected veteran.

Special Instructions

Applicants should submit a CV, research statement not to exceed 3 pages describing past accomplishments and future plans, and teaching statement along with a cover letter describing their interest in a faculty position in Computational Medicine. Applicants should also provide the names and contact information for at least 3 references. At least one letter writer should provide an evaluation of the applicant’s potential as an effective teacher and mentor.
