The Department of Biomedical Data Science and the Center for Quantitative Biology at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth invite applications for a tenure-track appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor as part of a targeted expansion of Dartmouth’s Biomedical Data Science Faculty. The Department of Biomedical Data Science offers a dynamic and interactive environment, with a commitment to research excellence. The Center for Quantitative Biology is focused on developing methods and faculty expertise in single cell genomics at Dartmouth. Dartmouth faculty members benefit from highly collaborative and collegial interactions across campus, inclusive of departments at Geisel, the Dartmouth Faculty of Arts & Sciences, the Norris Cotton Cancer Center, and the Thayer School of Engineering.
Successful applicants will develop vigorous and innovative research programs focused on bioinformatics, biostatistics, or biomedical informatics to study and understand a wide range of biological or clinical questions, including but not limited to single-cell analyses, systems biology, spatial transcriptomics, genomics, epigenomics, and visualization of complex data. Applicants with expertise in machine learning, artificial intelligence, computational biology, or biostatistics are strongly encouraged. Candidates are expected to have a strong record of scholarship, to develop an independent research program, and to participate in graduate-level teaching. Evidence of an ability to secure extramural funding is desirable. Applicants should have a PhD, MD, or equivalent degree with relevant post-doctoral training.
A generous start-up package as well as access to state-of-the-art research facilities will be provided. Individuals will be given opportunities for mentorship and teaching in relevant PhD graduate programs (e.g., Program in Quantitative Biomedical Sciences, Program in Molecular and Cellular Biology). Training grants (e.g., the Burroughs Wellcome Fund Big Data in the Life Sciences for Unifying Population and Laboratory-based Sciences Training Grant, and the Quantitative Biomedical Sciences Training Grant) are available to support trainees.
Opportunities for innovative research methods development and application are facilitated through Dartmouth’s high-performance computing resources (e.g., Discovery), access to Dartmouth’s Shared Resources, and interactions with existing NIH Centers for Biomedical Research Excellence (COBREs) at Dartmouth.
