The Quantitative Biology Initiative in Harvard’s Faculty of Arts and Sciences (http://quantbio.harvard.edu) seeks candidates for a tenure-track faculty position at the rank of assistant professor. The Initiative emphasizes quantitative approaches to fundamental problems in the life sciences and aims to foster interactions across disciplinary boundaries. Candidates in any area of quantitative biology will be considered, including those taking computational, theoretical, and/or experimental approaches. The successful candidate will hold an academic appointment in a FAS natural science department such as, but not restricted to, Molecular and Cellular Biology, Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology, Organismic and Evolutionary Biology, Physics, Statistics, or Chemistry and Chemical Biology. A joint appointment in the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences will also be considered.
Faculty associated with the Initiative will have access to facilities and opportunities for collaborative research not only through departments/areas but also through the Life Sciences Core facilities, the Center for Nanoscale Systems, the Broad Institute, and the Center for Brain Science. Candidates are required to have a doctorate or terminal degree in a relevant discipline by the expected start date. In addition, we seek candidates who have a strong research record and a commitment to undergraduate teaching and graduate training.
Applications should include: curriculum vitae, a statement of research (up to 5 pages, including a summary of previous research accomplishments), a teaching statement and PDFs of up to 3 publications. Candidates are also required to submit the names and contact information for three to five references. Complete applications should be received no later than November 15, 2018. Submit applications to: http://academicpositions.harvard.edu/postings/8405. For information or assistance contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

About Harvard University
The Quantitative Biology Initiative at Harvard University (QuantBio) brings together students and faculty from diverse departments and research labs to answer longstanding questions in biology. We are particularly interested in understanding how molecular networks make decisions that determine the fate of cells, how proteins self-assemble into cellular components, how cells self-organize into living organisms, and how collections of cells adapt to changes in their environment. We answer these questions by developing new experimental tools, predictive mathematical models, and computational methods for analyzing large data sets.
