...as a faculty member

We are currently hiring for a new tenured or tenure-track faculty member having a focus on bioinformatics and computational biology, as broadly defined. Applications are due January 6, 2019 and the position will begin in August 2019 (more information)

...as a postdoc

Several of our research teams are currently seeking enthusiastic postdoctoral scholars. Current/recent openings include the following:

  • Dr. Erin Chambers is seeking a postdoc with a flexible focus fitting under the broad categories of computational topology, computational geometry, algorithms and/or graph theory; please see her publications page and get in touch if you see a common area of interest! The duration is 12 months, with funding available to extend for a second year. To apply, please email Dr.Chambers with (1) a cover level indicating why you are interested in and a good fit for the position, (2) a CV, (3) a research statement, and (4) the names of 2-3 references that can be contacted for a letter of recommendation.

  • Drs. Erin Chambers and David Letscher are seeking a postdoc focused on a computational topology project in shape simplification. The project will focus on designing and implementing algorithms that utilitize persistent homology as well as other tools from computational topology and geometry to apply to data sets collected from plant root systems. This is funded for 12 months by NSF #1759807, with the possibility of extending for a second year. To apply, please email Dr.Chambers with (1) a cover level indicating why you are interested in and a good fit for the position, (2) a CV, (3) a research statement, and (4) the names of 2-3 references that can be contacted for a letter of recommendation.

  • Dr. Flavio Esposito is looking for a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow in Network Management and/or Machine Learning Applied to Edge Networking for participation in the NSF-sponsored project: A Knowledge-Defined Platform for Real-Time Management of Transmissions and Computations at Network Edge. Minimum requirements: PhD in computer science or related discipline and experience/knowledge in applied machine learning.

    The position is for one year (renewable). Interested applicants should email Dr. Esposito (i) cover letter explaining why the candidate is interested in the position and why they think they are a good fit for the position, (ii) CV, (ii) names of at least two references, (iii) a list of published papers on topics relevant to the position and (iv) a research statement. Only short-listed candidate will be notified about the interview and application closes when the position is filled.
