Assistant Professor at Systems Biology, Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, VA (USA)

The Division of Systems Biology at Virginia Tech is seeking to hire an assistant or associate professor with expertise in mathematical modeling of molecular regulatory networks underlying the physiology of cells and tissues. The faculty appointment will be in the Department of Biological Sciences at our Blacksburg, VA campus, with a start date in August 2019 or shortly thereafter. The Division of Systems Biology resides in the College of Science's Academy of Integrated Science, which works with academic departments campus-wide to develop and support new directions in scientific research and education. The Division offers a unique undergraduate degree in systems biology, and its faculty participate in departmental graduate programs as well as the university's interdisciplinary Ph.D. program in Genetics, Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (GBCB). Scientists whose work and goals straddle traditional academic boundaries are especially encouraged to apply. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to engage in transdisciplinary research, curriculum, and/or outreach initiatives with other university faculty working in Virginia Tech's Destination Areas. The responsibilities of a successful applicant will be to maintain a visible and vigorous funded research program; to teach undergraduate systems biology courses and graduate level biological sciences courses; to mentor undergraduate research projects in systems biology and graduate research students in biological sciences and GBCB; to continue developing his or her professional capabilities and scholarly activities, including participation in professional societies and meetings, curriculum development, participation in department, academy, college, and university governance, and professional service.

Job requirements: Applicants must have demonstrable research experience in molecular systems biology or computational cell biology, including a Ph.D. in a relevant field of science (such as biology, biophysics, biochemistry, applied mathematics, bioengineering, etc.) and postdoctoral experience. We are looking for applicants who are knowledgeable in the use of deterministic, stochastic and hybrid models to study the spatiotemporal dynamics of cellular control systems by analytical and numerical methods, with a strong commitment to biological realism and experimental facts. Additionally, applicants must be dedicated to interdisciplinary education at the undergraduate and graduate level, committed to teaching a student body that is diverse with respect to socio-economic status, interests and abilities, and sensitive to issues of diversity in the university community.

Preference will be given to applicants whose research interests and experience complement the program's excellence in cell cycle dynamics, circadian rhythms, systems immunology, microbial physiology, and infectious disease. Demonstrated experience with interdisciplinary teaching and/or research in areas that align with Virginia Tech’s university-wide, multi-disciplinary focus, as exemplified by the Destination Areas, will also be of particular interest.

Applications must be submitted online at http://listings.jobs.vt.edu (#TR0180141) and should include (1) a cover letter, (2) curriculum vitae, (3) statement of teaching experience and philosophy, (4) summary of research experience and future plans, (5) a description of any previous activities in expanding the diversity of the scientific community (such as mentoring members of under-represented groups), and of the applicant's plans to build a culturally diverse educational environment at Virginia Tech (http://www.diversity.vt.edu). Applicants should also provide contact information for three references.

The review of applications will begin on November 15, 2018 and continue until the position is filled. As part of the hiring process, the successful applicant must provide an official Ph.D. transcript and pass a criminal background check.

Virginia Tech is an EO/AA university. Individuals with disabilities desiring accommodation in the application process should notify Ms. Dreama Price, Department of Biological Sciences, (540) 231-5712, or call TTY 1-800-828-1120. Requests for further information about the systems biology program should be directed to Professor John Tyson.

Postdoctoral Researcher in Quantitative Ecology and Modeling at The Morton Arboretum, near Chicago, Illinois

The Morton Arboretum invites applications for a two year postdoctoral researcher to work on an NSF-supported project, "Quantifying biogeographic history: a novel model-based approach to integrating data from genes, fossils, specimens, and environments". The successful applicant will join an international team of researchers in mathematics/ statistics, ecology, biogeography, distribution modeling, and population genetics. The postdoctoral researcher will collaborate with the project team to design, develop and implement novel methods for integrating datasets which have different characteristics and resolution (environmental, paleoecological, and genetic data) to make inference about historical shifts in species ranges and changes in population sizes.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. (or Ph.D. defense scheduled) in a quantitative science (i.e., mathematical biology, statistics, theoretical ecology, or related fields), or in an ecological field plus experience with ecological modeling, species distribution or population modeling, or quantitative ecology. Interest or experience in one or more of the following is beneficial: Bayesian statistics, parameter estimation, data-driven modeling, spatial modeling, state-space modeling, or mathematical modeling. Applicants should be interested in working at the interface of statistics and ecology. Experience in programming is beneficial.

The position is for two years, with possibility for continuing support pending future funding. The postdoctoral researcher will be based at The Morton Arboretum and will primarily work with Dr. Sean Hoban, Dr. Andria Dawson (Mount Royal University, Calgary), and Dr. Adam Smith (Missouri Botanical Garden). The position will require some travel for team meetings. All travel expenses are covered by grant funds. The postdoctoral researcher will be provided opportunities for professional development, suited to their interests (e.g. attend scientific meetings, teaching or mentoring, skill training), for which funding is provided.

The Morton Arboretum is a world-class plant science research institute and public botanic garden near Chicago, USA, with strengths in ecology, conservation, informatics, and genomics. The Arboretum has collaborations with scientists at the Field Museum, University of Illinois Chicago, two National Laboratories, Brookfield Zoo, and Chicago Botanic Garden.

Applications may be submitted until the position is filled; applications received by October 15 are guaranteed consideration. A start date by January 2019 is preferred. Applicants must apply at careers.hireology.com/themortonarboretum/. Inquiries about the position or the application are welcome. Please contact Dr. Sean Hoban (shoban@mortonarb.org), Dr. Adam Smith (adam.smith@mobot.org), or Dr. Andria Dawson (andria.dawson@gmail.com).
