Multiple Tenure Track Faculty Positions at Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University open

Department of Systems and Computation Biology
Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University

The Albert Einstein College of Medicine (www.aecom.yu.edu), one of the leading medical schools in New York City, is seeking to fill multiple tenure track faculty positions in the newly formed Department of Systems and Computational Biology. Established in April 2008, the main goal of the new department is to advance our understanding of living systems by developing theoretical, computational and experimental approaches to study complex biological systems.

The College has 750 medical students, 325 graduate students and 360 post-doctoral fellows in training and boasts a strong research faculty covering broad areas of experimental biology, offering outstanding opportunities for collaborative interactions. The 200,000 square foot Center for Genetic and Translational Medicine at Einstein, which opened in late 2007, locates computational, systems and experimental scientists in physical proximity to foster interdisciplinary communication and collaboration. Highly competitive start-up packages are available.

We seek outstanding scientists with broad experience and demonstrated collaborative interactions with experimental or clinical investigators. Candidates should have strength in a physical, mathematical or computational field at the Ph.D. or equivalent level. Experience applying these skills to a biological or biomedical area (demonstrated through publications or support) is also desirable. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to: Modeling cellular processes, such as signaling, transcriptional regulation and immune response; Pathway analysis; Genetic networks; Functional proteomics and genomics; Evolution of structure and function; Computational neuroscience; Mathematical and computational modeling of complex traits and diseases.

Applicants should send a letter of interest, C.V., statement of research and teaching interests, and names of three referees, in electronic format to:
