Two Faculty Positions in Systems Biology, Genomics and Informatics     

Oregon State University is searching for two faculty with enthusiasm for collaborative research and teaching at the interface between the life sciences — biological, biomedical, pharmaceutical, or environmental — and the quantitative or physical sciences. Appointees will be expected to develop independent and collaborative grant-funded research programs, at any level of scale from the molecular to the ecological. The research, teaching, and extension programs of the appointees are expected to integrate student success, diversity, and inclusion as core values. This search is part of a large cohort of new faculty hires at OSU focused on interdisciplinary computational research, and on advancement of diversity, inclusion and student success.


An assistant professor (9 month, tenure track) position is available in any domain where the life or environmental sciences intersect with the quantitative or physical sciences. Complex systems in the life and environmental sciences span numerous levels of scale from metabolites, macromolecules, cells, tissues, and organisms, to populations, communities and ecosystems. Increasingly, understanding these systems requires interdisciplinary collaborative research at the intersection with quantitative or physical sciences. The appointment will reside jointly in two units, one a life or environmental sciences unit, and the other ideally in a physical or quantitative sciences unit, depending on the appointee’s expertise and interest.
