Biological Sciences, Engineering and Technology: Biomedical, Mathematics
The Quantitative Biology Initiative in Harvard’s Faculty of Arts and Sciences seeks candidates for a tenure-track faculty position at the rank of Assistant Professor. The QBio Initiative emphasizes novel approaches to fundamental problems in the life sciences and fosters interactions across traditional disciplinary boundaries. Candidates in any area of quantitative biology will be considered, including those taking computational, theoretical, and/or experimental approaches. We are particularly interested in candidates bringing new perspectives to our campus community who might not fit into traditional academic disciplines.
The successful candidate will hold an academic appointment in a FAS Science department and/or in the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering & Applied Sciences. Potential appointments include: Applied Math, Applied Physics, Bioengineering, Chemistry & Chemical Biology, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Materials & Mechanical Engineering, Molecular & Cellular Biology, Organismic & Evolutionary Biology, Physics, Statistics, and Stem Cell & Regenerative Biology. Faculty associated with the Initiative will have access to our multi-disciplinary research community as well facilities and opportunities for collaborative research not only through academic departments/areas but also through the Life Sciences Core facilities, the Center for Nanoscale Systems, and the Broad Institute.
Timeline: Completed applications should be received no later than October 4, 2019. Interviews will be held within the first two weeks of December 2019. Finalist(s) will return for a second visit in January/February 2020 to meet with relevant departments, chairs, and deans.

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.
