UCSF Center for Systems and Synthetic Biology
Systems Biology Fellows Positions
Applications due: January 1, 2011.
The UCSF Center for Systems and Synthetic Biology (a newly established NIH National Center for Systems Biology) is recruiting Systems Biology Fellows. We seek exceptionally creative and independent individuals with backgrounds in engineering, physics, mathematics and computer science, who are dedicated to applying quantitative approaches to the study of complex biological systems. The Fellows will be a central component of the new center, which aims to breakdown boundaries in establishing new approaches to biology, as well as new applications of biology. Fellows will be free to pursue their own research interests and/or to collaborate with any members of the Center and the UCSF faculty. UCSF provides an interdisciplinary and highly interactive collegial environment. The Center for Systems and Synthetic Biology is home to a vibrant scientific community pursuing cutting-edge research in quantitative biology. The fellows will also have close interactions with UCSF’s iPQB graduate program (http://ipqb.ucsf.edu/ ) harboring three tracks in Biophysics, Bioinformatics, and Complex Biological Systems. The focus of the Fellows positions is primarily on creative computational and theoretical approaches to biological problems. Nonetheless, fellows will be immersed in outstanding experimental environments, presented with the opportunity to work in wet labs through collaboration, in addition to having access to UCSF’s world-class shared experimental facilities. Appointments are for three years, with competitive salary and research support.
Candidates must have strong quantitative backgrounds and have received, or are soon expecting, a Ph.D. degree in relevant areas. Applications should be submitted by January 1, 2011 to receive full consideration. We will continue to review applications until the positions are filled. Applicants should provide a CV, summary of current/past research (1-2 pages), description of future research (1-2 pages), and 2-4 letters of recommendation.
Application materials will only be accepted by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
