Job Description

The Cecil H. and Ida Green Center for Systems Biology  within the Lyda Hill Department of Bioinformatics  at UT Southwestern Medical Center is looking to expand its research program in microbial systems biology. We seek tenure-track faculty candidates at the level of Assistant Professor with interests in microbial genetics, microbial physiology, synthetic biology, microbial metabolism, and/or microbial evolution. Applicants with experience in projects that combine quantitative high-throughput experimentation with theory and/or informatics elements would be highly suitable.
Embedded in the Department of Bioinformatics, the Center aims to discover and understand a circuit theory for biology - a set of powerful, predictive principles that can provide insight into how biological components are wired as a network to achieve complex functionalities. Center faculty collaborate closely with Bioinformatics and Computational experts in genomics, machine learning/AI, and statistical physics. The Center also houses one of the leading national hubs in quantitative light microscopy development. The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center offers over 40 core facilities in cryo-electron microscopy, metabolomics, crystallographic structure determination, high-throughput small molecule screening, high resolution microscopy, and next-generation sequencing. As part of a large academic medical center, our Center presents abundant potential for collaboration with clinicians and access to clinical data and isolates.
The successful applicant will receive a highly competitive start up package. 


A Ph.D. and significant research experience as a postdoctoral fellow in Biochemistry, Computational Biology, Microbiology, Systems Biology, Quantitative Biology or related fields is required.
It is expected that applicants will have a strong research track record as evidenced by publications and preprints.
Demonstrated experience with acquiring funding is a plus.
