SYSTEMS BIOLOGY TENURE-TRACK ASSISTANT PROFESSOR open

Department of Biology, Swarthmore College

The Department of Biology invites applications for a tenure-track position at the assistant professor level, beginning Fall 2017. Applicants should have a Ph.D.; post-doctoral experience is desirable. The strongest candidates will demonstrate a commitment to teaching and an active research program that can involve motivated undergraduates from diverse backgrounds. We seek a broadly trained systems biologist whose research and course offerings complement those of other faculty in the department. We invite applicants who use contemporary methodologies, including computational and/or modeling techniques, to study biological systems at the cellular or organismal level. Teaching responsibilities include participation in a team-taught introductory course, a one-semester intermediate level course in systems biology with a laboratory, and an advanced seminar with research projects in the area of the applicant's interest.

Participation in the interdisciplinary Neuroscience program is possible. The College offers competitive start-up packages to support faculty research and teaching, as well as a generous sabbatical policy (http://www.swarthmore.edu/provosts-office/sabbatical-support).

Swarthmore has a strong institutional commitment to diversity, and actively seeks and welcomes applications from candidates with exceptional qualifications, particularly those with demonstrable commitments to a more inclusive society and world.
