Center for Biomedical Informatics (CBI) and the Center for
The University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC) is expanding its research
activities in the area of bioinformatics. We are seeking investigators at the
Assistant or Associate Professor level with independent and collaborative
research programs. Six to ten faculty will be recruited into tenure track positions
over the next three years.
Here we are searching for investigators with expertise in the broad areas of
bioinformatics, quantitative or systems biology and a research program in RNA
biology. Successful candidates will hold appointments in the newly founded
CBI and the RNA Center. Academic department affliation will be determined
according to the best ft. Candidates with research experience in the following
areas are highly encouraged to apply: genome and transcriptome informatics,
systems biology, population transcriptomics, single-cell sequencing analysis,
machine learning, data mining, computational modeling, developing new
computational tools for high-throughput RNA analysis and data visualization,
multi-dimensional data integration of clinical and gene expression, including
URMC offers attractive start-up packages and has a strong commitment to career
development. The successful candidate is expected to develop a competitive
research program, attract external funding, and participate in graduate education.
Major recent institutional investments have created an outstanding research
data–driven infrastructure, exemplifed by the Health Sciences Center for
Computational Innovation, and the recent $50 million University investment
to build the Institute for Data Science.

Institute of Biological Chemistry, Assistant Professor
The Institute of Biological Chemistry at Washington State University seeks a motivated and promising researcher engaged in a fundamental area of
modern plant science. Applications are invited for an Assistant Professor who will use innovative research approaches that incorporate biochemistry/
biophysics, structural biology, systems biology or phenomics/phenotyping in key strategic areas of plant metabolism, growth and development.
Examples of relevant areas include: a) strong background in plant growth/development and adaptation to the environment, including the fedgling feld
of phenomics, b) developing strategies to signifcantly redirect carbon allocation from photosynthesis into specifc classes of metabolites in plants,
and c) identifying and providing novel sources of sustainable, ecologically neutral, plant-derived substances suitable for biofuels and biomaterials.
This is a 9-month, tenure-track full-time faculty position to begin August 16, 2018, or as negotiated, at the university’s main campus in Pullman,
Washington. Successful applicants are expected to rapidly develop a highly competitive research program and contribute substantially to the missions
of the Institute of Biological Chemistry and College of Agricultural, Human and Natural Resource Sciences.
Responsibilities will include developing and maintaining a vigorous research program supported by extramural funding; developing and teaching
courses on topics in modern plant biology that complements existing courses, training and mentoring graduate students; working effectively with
individuals and groups with a variety of identities, cultures, backgrounds, and ideologies in a global environment; and participating in committee
service at the department, college, and/or university level. The successful applicant will be expected to conduct a program of research consistent
with the missions of the WSU Agricultural Research Center. Required: PhD or equivalent, and one year of postdoctoral experience by start date.
Expertise in using innovative approaches in plant biochemistry/biophysics structural biology, systems biology, or phenomics/phenotyping in key
strategic areas of plant metabolism, growth and development. Preferred: Evidence of quality and quantity of research accomplished in a fundamental
area of modern plant science; a coherent research plan that incorporates some or all of the approaches identifed under the required qualifcations;
and excellent oral and written communications skills.
