Genomics faculty positions (Assistant/Associate Professors)
Department of Biology
Temple University
Philadelphia PA

The Department of Biology at Temple University invites applications for
tenured and tenure-track faculty positions in genomics. We are interested
in early and mid-career scientists who will integrate concepts, methods,
and tools from evolutionary and population genomics to address significant
questions in biology and biomedicine. Successful candidates will have a
primary focus on large scale analytics and computational science. They will
be core faculty of the new Institute for Genomics and Evolutionary Medicine
(iGEM) or the Center for Computational Genetics and Genomics (CCGG) at
Temple University. We are seeking candidates who will closely complement
existing strengths in the Dept. of Biology in the areas of molecular
evolution, population genetics, phylogenomics, phylomedicine, biodiversity,
and computational biology.

Applicants should submit to igem@temple.edu a single pdf containing a cover
letter, a detailed *curriculum vitae*, a summary of current and future
research interests, and a statement of teaching philosophy. Please include
in the cover letter a link to a Google Scholar profile. Through their
research and teaching statements applicants should inform the search
committee about the transformative and cross-disciplinary aspects of their
work. Review of applications will begin on November 1.
