The NeuroGenomics and Informatics (NGI) Center (https://neurogenomics.wustl.edu/) at Washington University School of Medicine, seeks to appoint Full-time tenure-track faculty position with interdisciplinary research interests and approaches that focus on improving our understanding of Alzheimer Disease and related dementias. Anticipated start date is summer-fall 2024.

The NGI is looking for outstanding candidates with interest in generating and/or leveraging multi-omic data to understand the biology of neurodegeneration vs healthy aging. Competitive faculty should have experience in neurobiology, human genomics, data integration and/or computational biology; selected faculty should address these questions using state of the art techniques in cellular, molecular biology and functional genomics (iPSC, organoids, CRISPR), multi-omic data (spatial transcriptomics, single cell omics, long read sequencing) and statistical learning (supervised vs unsupervised ).

Both junior-level and established scientists are encouraged to apply. The NGI highly encourages applications from women and underrepresented groups, and we are thoroughly committed to providing the necessary resources and support for advancing career goals. Once identified by the NGI, the successful candidate(s) will join a suitable academic home department (Neurology, Genetics, Psychiatry) as a faculty member based on the candidate’s area of research specialization. The expected appointments are tenure track faculty positions at the Assistant, Associate or Full Professor level (assignment commensurate with background, experience, and work history). Start-up packages and salary are competitive and commensurate with experience.

The NGI is associated with several highly ranked graduate programs. The successful candidate will be eligible for membership in the Division of Biology and Biomedical Sciences, which holds up to thirteen academic programs, including: Biomedical Informatics and Data Science, Computational and Systems Biology, Molecular Genetics and Genomics and Neuroscience. The successful candidate is expected to establish an extramurally-funded research program, mentor Master's and PhD students and foster development of an equitable and diverse environment. They will develop an independent research program and be a part of a translational team of researchers at the NGI focused on understanding the biology of neurodegeneration, developing prediction models and identifying druggable targets

The new faculty will join a large, multi-disciplinary and collaborative environment of faculties with expertise in genomics, multi-omics, machine learning, and cell-models and iPSC in neurodegeneration. The successful candidate will also become integrated into the university’s neuroscience and genetics communities (Knight-ADRC and Hope Center) that feature highly successful members, a collaborative atmosphere, and broad research interests. They will also have access to state of the art facilities at the McDonnell Genome Institute (MGI) and competitive Research Infrastructure Services (RIS)

Basic Qualifications The successful candidates will have a Ph.D. and/or M.D. in a relevant discipline with an exceptional track record in research and mentoring and a well-defined research project.

Applicant special Instructions Applicants should submit: Comprehensive Curriculum Vitae Cover Letter: including contact information (name, email, and telephone number) for three references Statement of research: detailing current interests and future research trajectory (limit to two pages) Research contributions: half a page description of their single-most important paper to date highlighting the novelty of the findings (accepted, published, or BioRxiv deposited papers only) Please send all requested material in one single PDF to neurogenomics@wustl.edu

End Date June 15, 2024 Applications received by June 15, 2024 will receive full consideration, while applications received thereafter will be considered on a rolling basis until the position is filled.

Christi why do you insist on pasting walls of text? I see that I've tried to communicate the importance of proper formatting at least twice before with you.
