1. Assistant Professor in Experimental Biological Physics, Boston University, School of Physics

The Departments of Physics and Biology at Boston University are seeking candidates for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in Experimental Biological Physics. Possible areas of interest include but are not limited to: single cell-omics, systems and quantitative biology, ecology and evolution of populations, and neuroscience. The ideal hire should be a strong candidate for a Physics/Biology joint-appointment.

The successful candidate should have a Ph.D. degree or equivalent, and is expected to be an effective teacher and mentor in the undergraduate and graduate instructional programs, both in Physics and at the interface between Physics and Biology. Applications should be submitted via AcademicJobsOnline  (https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/12380) and should include a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, a statement of research interests, a statement of teaching experience and philosophy, and three letters of recommendation.

2.  Assistant Professor level in biological design, Boston University

Boston University invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant Professor level in biological design, which we define as the approach of building new biological systems ranging from proteins to organs as a means to understand fundamental biological principles.

Example areas of interest include but are not limited to systems and synthetic biology, chemical biology, physics of biology, microbiome, cell and developmental biology, and regenerative medicine. This is a collaborative, interdisciplinary search involving faculty from the College of Arts and Sciences and College of Engineering.

The new hire will join and collaborate with investigators in BU’s Biological Design Center and will be appointed to a tenure-track position in one of the participating departments based on background and interests. The successful candidate will join a strong and growing interdisciplinary research community at Boston University and will be offered newly renovated laboratory facilities, a competitive salary and startup package.

Candidates must hold a PhD in an appropriate field, have postdoctoral experience and show potential for leading an independent and vibrant research program. Responsibilities also include teaching at both the graduate and undergraduate levels, and a commitment to our institutional values regarding diversity, equity and inclusion. Indeed, at Boston University, “…we seek to cultivate an atmosphere of respect for individual differences in life experience, sexual orientation, and religious belief, and we aspire to be free of intellectual parochialism, barriers to access, and ethnocentrism,” as expressed in our institutional diversity statement.

Please use AcademicJobsOnline (https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/11944) to submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statements of research and teaching interests, and three representative reprints, and arrange for three letters of reference to be submitted through the same website. Inquiries can be addressed to Prof. Mo Khalil (khalil@bu.edu), Chair, Biological Design Search Committee.
