    Essential Job Duties:

    As part of the Chancellor’s Faculty Excellence Program, NC State University seeks to recruit an outstanding faculty member to broaden its interdisciplinary faculty cluster in Bioinformatics. This cluster is a fully integrated part of the Bioinformatics Research Center (BRC). Founded in 1999 to develop tools and perform complex analyses in quantitative genetics, the BRC has grown to include strengths in evolutionary biology, precision health/agriculture, and multi-omics investigations.

    We seek a faculty investigator for a tenured/tenure-track position to expand upon and complement NC State’s existing strengths in quantitative and computational methods in biology. Applicants from all relevant research areas will be considered. However, priority will be given to investigators working on genome-environment interactions and/or computational chemistry with a life sciences focus. We are particularly interested in applicants who can bridge experiment and theory, and have the ability to translate research outcomes to address biomedical or agricultural challenges. Demonstrated collaboration as a member of a multi-disciplinary team is highly desired. The new hire will help propel NC State to the forefront of efforts to develop and define new principles in genome-environment interactions.

    We anticipate filling this position at Assistant Professor rank but will consider applications at the rank of Associate or Full Professor. The home department is anticipated to be in one of the five participating colleges (Agriculture & Life Sciences, Engineering, Natural Resources, Sciences, and Veterinary Medicine) and will be determined based on credentials and research fit.

    The hire will be expected to provide leadership in quantitative and/or computational biology across NCSU, teach existing courses as appropriate, and develop specialized coursework in their area of expertise.

    Other Responsibilities: Perform other related duties as assigned.
