Description:

The School of Biological Sciences (https://biology.ucsd.edu/), Department of Molecular Biology, invites applications for two faculty positions in Molecular Biology at the tenure-track Assistant Professor level. Candidates pursuing innovative research in the general area of Computational Molecular Biology are encouraged to apply; applicants with fully dry / computational labs are strongly preferred. We are particularly interested in candidates that foster equity and inclusion. Potential areas of interest include, but are not limited to, studies focused on development of novel computational methods in biophysics, structural biology, genomics, genetics, and bioinformatics with applications ranging from image analysis for cryo-EM, cryo-ET, and advanced light microscopy to AI/ML-based modeling of protein structure-function- evolution as well as dynamic intracellular processes.

The School of Biological Sciences at UCSD is a vibrant center of scientific discovery, innovation, and collaboration. Our large research base spans many areas of biology and has one of the most celebrated graduate programs in the country.

Basic Qualifications and Requirements:

All candidates must have earned a Ph.D. or equivalent degree, and be committed to teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels. In addition to excellence and creativity in research and scholarship, successful candidates must also demonstrate a commitment to equity and inclusion in higher education.

Interested applicants must submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statement of research, statement of teaching, a statement describing their past experience and leadership in fostering equity and diversity or their potential to make future contributions and 3-5 publications.
