Faculty Positions in New Computational Systems Biology Cluster

Wayne State University is undergoing a considerable expansion in the area of computational and genomic biology. Multiple faculty positions, including a leadership position, are available at any rank to develop a new institute linking the School of Medicine’s Center for Molecular Medicine and Genetics, C.S. Mott Center for Human Growth and Development, Karmanos Cancer Institute, and the Department of Computer Science with the state-wide Michigan Alliance for Clinical Translational Research program. Appropriate start-up resources will be made available for each position.

With a focus on genome-wide projects, the successful applicants are expected to establish and maintain vigorous, externally funded research programs that integrate with existing computational, genomic and personalized-medicine efforts; as well as to participate in education at both undergraduate and graduate levels.

This is a unique opportunity that is part of the Detroit renaissance, in which Wayne State University is expected to experience substantial research-intensive growth through the next decade. This includes a multi-institutional local initiative and a novel state-wide translational sciences partnership to move our discoveries from the bench to the bedside.
