The Department of Physics and the Systems Biology Institute at Yale University invite applications for a joint tenure track faculty position in the area of Biological Physics. The appointment is expected to be at the Assistant Professor level, although a more senior appointment will be considered for a candidate with exceptional qualifications, pending administrative review. Yale faculty are expected to lead an internationally-recognized research program. Candidates should have demonstrated the potential to conduct such a program as evidenced by their research proposal, publication record, and supporting letters from recognized leaders in the field. A PhD in Physics or Applied Physics and the ability and interest to teach physics, including biological physics, effectively at both the graduate and undergraduate levels are also required. Candidates pursuing theoretical or experimental research or both will receive full consideration. State-of-the-art laboratory space will be provided at the Systems Biology Institute located at Yale University's new West Campus: http://westcampus.yale.edu/. The position will take advantage of integration with the growing community of the West Campus institutes and core facilities. The Yale Systems Biology Institute is composed of several multi-disciplinary groups representing a wide range of expertise, cutting across departmental and school boundaries. In Physics and neighboring departments, the newly appointed faculty member will find a vibrant community of experimentalists researching at the physical science-life science interface. He or she will also benefit from interactions with Yale's large and strong group of theorists with related interests.
Applicants should create a profile at on: apply.interfolio.com/37310 and upload a statement of research plan, curriculum vitae, and up to five reprints of published work(s). Applicants should also arrange for three references to upload their letters of recommendation.
