Center for Advanced Genomic Technologies—Tenure-Track Position

The Center for Advanced Genomic Technologies at Duke University, a new initiative launched collaboratively by Duke's Pratt School of Engineering and School of Medicine, invites applications for a tenure track faculty position at any rank in the area of genomic technology development and its application to the diagnosis, treatment, and/or fundamental understanding of human disease.

We will consider applicants who work in all areas of genomic technology. Potential technological research areas of interest include, but are not limited to, genome engineering, functional genomics/epigenomics including high-throughput genetic screening and/or epigenomic profiling and annotation, methods to study genome structure, genome and nucleic acid imaging, cell reprogramming, precision medicine, and gene and cell therapies. We are also interested in the development and application of innovative computational methods to analyze data generated by these approaches. We particularly encourage applicants who are interested in the application of these technologies to basic and applied research in the areas of regenerative biology and medicine, cancer biology, pharmacology, immunology, neurobiology, and cell biology including cell fate specification and lineage tracing.

Candidates are expected to have a doctoral degree in biomedical engineering, bioengineering, genomics/genetics, cell biology, pharmacology, immunology, biochemistry, biophysics, neuroscience/neurobiology, computational biology, biostatistics, or a related discipline. We encourage applications from physician-scientists. Candidates are expected to have a record of significant research contributions, to be capable of obtaining competitive external research funding, and to actively participate in teaching.

A tenure-track appointment at the Assistant Professor level is anticipated, but appointments at the Associate or Full Professor level with tenure are available for exceptional applicants.

All applications will be considered until the position is filled but for best consideration, please submit applications by October 20, 2019.
