Assistant Professor Positions Available at Princeton University
The Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics at Princeton University invites applications for tenure-track faculty positions at the Assistant Professor level; in exceptional cases, more senior appointments may be considered. We are seeking outstanding scientists with strong interest and experience in quantitative, systems-level approaches to understanding any area in modern experimental molecular biology, chemistry, or evolutionary biology. Appointments at the Lewis-Sigler Institute are made jointly with an appropriate home department. A strong record of experimental work and quantitative analysis is essential. The successful candidate will have research laboratories at the Institute, and teaching responsibilities (both graduate and undergraduate) will be shared between the Institute and the home department.
The Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics, housed in the Carl Icahn Laboratory at Princeton University, was established to innovate in research and teaching at the interface of modern biology and the more quantitative sciences. The Institute provides significant support to its faculty through heavy investment in state-of-the-art research infrastructure, an NIH-funded graduate training program, and a high level of administrative support as well.
All applicants must have a Ph.D., M.D., or equivalent degree. In addition, applicants must have a very strong record of research productivity, demonstrate the ability to develop a rigorous research program, and be committed to teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
How to Apply
Applications must be submitted online at: http://jobs.princeton.edu, requisition # 1300612 and should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a two-page research description, as well as contact information for three references. Applications will be reviewed beginning on October 15, 2013.
The Lewis-Sigler Fellows Program at Princeton University provides opportunities to a few exceptional individuals who are expecting or have recently obtained a Ph.D. degree in areas relevant to modern quantitative biology, including biologically relevant chemistry, computer science, mathematics, physics, or engineering.
The Program provides Fellows a generous salary and an annual research budget as well as laboratory space sufficient to carry out an independent research program. Fellows are not expected to apply for outside funding. Independent research is carried out under the mentorship of the Lewis-Sigler Institute, which includes faculty in Molecular Biology, Physics, Chemistry, Computer Science and Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. Appointments, which are made at the rank of Associate Research Scholar, are for a three-year term, renewable for another two years pending satisfactory performance.
To be considered, the candidate must have demonstrated the ability to carry out independent research aimed at understanding how biological systems organize, integrate and carry out complex processes. Research will be conducted in the highly collaborative environment of the Lewis-Sigler Institute, in which scientists from a number of disciplines are developing novel approaches to the study of biology in the post-genome-sequence era. Current faculty in the Institute address diverse areas of biology ranging from microbiology to systems neuroscience with the common theme of using the combined tools of mathematics, physics, computer science and chemistry to solve these problems.
Subject to approval by the Dean of the Faculty, Fellows have the opportunity to teach in an interdisciplinary program for undergraduates as well as to guide students in research projects. Current Fellows are devising and overseeing the laboratory sessions for an innovative set of introductory undergraduate courses that integrate basic physics, chemistry and computation with biology, in addition to more advanced project laboratories in which students carry out experiments of their own devising.

Applications should be submitted online at http://jobs.princeton.edu/ using Req #1300572. Applications should include a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, a short description of their research interests, and contact information for three references. The review process will begin by November 15, 2013; applications should be received by that date for full consideration.
Postdoctoral research associate positions are available in Josh Shaevitz’s lab in the Department of Physics and the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics, Princeton University. These are twelve-month appointments with the possibility of reappointments based on satisfactory performance and continued funding.
Applicants must have a recent Ph.D. in physics, neuroscience, computer science, biology, or related field and have demonstrable expertise in the aforementioned areas.
Applications should be submitted online at http://jobs.princeton.edu/ (Req #1300245). Applications should include a CV that includes a list of publications, a brief statement of research interests, and contact information for three references.
2. bacterial/yeast/animal cell molecular biology and genetics.
3. experimental chemistry or theoretical physics.
4. computational biology or biophysics.
5. computer science or statistics (applications relevant to genomics).
6. population genetics or molecular evolution.
Facility with computers is essential and knowledge of programming is highly desirable.
Applications should be submitted online at http://jobs.princeton.edu using Req# 1300355. Applications should include a curriculum vitae that includes a list of publications, a brief statement (3 pages) of research interests and goals and the names and contact information for three references.
