Systems Biology Fellows
The Center for Systems and Synthetic Biology at UCSF invites applications for 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 are a central component of the NIGMS-funded Center for Systems and Synthetic Biology, which aims to break down 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 UCSF faculty of interest. UCSF and QB3 provide 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 (http://systemsbiology.ucsf.edu/). The fellows will also have close interactions with UCSF’s iPQB graduate program 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. We are interested in applications from all exceptional individuals, and minorities and women are encouraged to apply. Applications should be submitted by November 15, 2011 to receive full consideration. Please send 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. Please send the requested information to: email@example.com
