Invites Applications for Tenure Track Position in Synthetic Biology
The Department of Bioengineering at the University of Washington (UW) invites applications for a tenure track position in the area of Synthetic Biology. Successful candidates will have a plan to apply synthetic biology to problems with direct relevance to human health.
Applications are sought at all levels: Assistant, Associate and Full Professor, but those at the Assistant Professor level are particularly encouraged. Ph.D. or M.D. degrees are required. The successful candidate will be expected to develop an internationally recognized research program and to participate in the teaching and service missions of the department. Scientists and engineers who apply should show evidence of excellence, originality and productivity in research and potential for excellent teaching. In order to maximize the impact of this hire, successful candidates will be selected, in part, on the basis of their complementarity to existing UW faculty with expertise in synthetic biology, and to other synthetic biology faculty being hired in other departments at this time (see http://synbio.washington.edu). These candidates will be expected to attract strong support from one or more additional departments within the UW and will be expected to follow UW’s strong tradition of collaboration across disciplinary boundaries. Candidates with interests in translational medicine are also encouraged to take advantage of our active Coulter Translational Research Partnership.
Applications must be submitted electronically at https://www.engr.washington.edu/facsearch/apply.phtml?pos_id=111. Applicant review will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. All positions are contingent on the availability of funding.
