Oakland University is now searching for an Assistant Professor in Quantitative Biology. The search, being organized through the Center for Biomedical Research, seeks to recruit an outstanding new faculty member. We are focusing on the individual: the department that the new faculty member will belong to will be determined by the best fit to the researcher's interests. Below is a copy of the ad.

Assistant Professor in Quantitative Biology. Oakland University is seeking an outstanding researcher in Quantitative Biology, starting January 1, 2010. Applicants from a wide variety of disciplines are welcome, including bioinformatics, mathematical modeling, biostatistics, and bioengineering. Applicants should possess a PhD in mathematics, biology, engineering, or a closely related field to the area of Quantitative Biology, and preferably additional postdoc experience. Teaching experience at the college level, or the potential to be an outstanding teacher, and extensive research experience in the area of Quantitative Biology is required. The faculty member will be hired into a department that best fits the background of the applicant, such as mathematics and statistics, biological sciences, or electrical & computer engineering. Candidates for this position must engage in interdisciplinary research that crosses department boundaries, and must use mathematical or numerical methods to solve important biomedical problems. The applicant will initially focus on developing a world-class, externally funded research program. In the long term, the applicant should have the potential to become a researcher/educator who can help establish and lead a planned Quantitative Biology PhD program. The ideal candidate should fit well with several of the established strengths at Oakland University, and should be able to contribute to biomedical research at the new Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine.
