Assistant/Associate Professor (tenure-leading) in Bioinformatics and Human Microbiome
University of Nebraska Medical Center. The Department of Genetics, Cell Biology and Anatomy (GCBA) invites applications for for a tenure-leading, Assistant/Associate Professor position at the interdisciplinary area of ‘Bioinformatics and Human Microbiome’ to start Fall 2019. The incumbent will complement the existing strengths in genomics, metagenomics, infectious diseases, and bioinformatics at UNMC. We are seeking a dynamic faculty member who interfaces with crosscutting disciplines such as cancer, neuroscience, infectious diseases, precision medicine, etc. to integrate the human microbiome research applications.
We seek candidates with a strong record of achievements at the interface of human microbial studies and Bioinformatics including a strong and relevant publication record, proven capacity or clear potential to attract externally sponsored research funding, and demonstrated experience in teaching and mentoring graduate students and postdocs. The candidate should have a Ph.D., or M.D. (or equivalent degree) in Bioinformatics or a related discipline with postdoctoral training in a genomics-based research area associated with microbiomes or infectious diseases. Wet lab experience is a strong plus but not a requirement.
State of the art research laboratories, biomedical informatics infrastructure, core facilities and collaborative investigators are available at UNMC/UNL to conduct world-class research in Bioinformatics and Human Microbiome. The research ecosystem contains a number of ongoing projects related to genomics, metagenomics and dietary modulation of gut microbiome to develop independent and collaborative grant proposals. Specific opportunities include the development of new computational tools and data analysis pipelines in the areas of metagenomics, nutrigenomics, obesity predisposition and prevention, and dietary modulation of gut microbiome.
