Faculty Position in Computational Biology with Emphasis on Metabolomics and Proteomics

The recently established Center for Bioinformatics and Integrative Biology (CBIB) at Universidad Andrés Bello (UNAB), Santiago Chile seeks a faculty member to establish externally funded, internationally recognized, and interdisciplinary research programs in bioinformatics and/or computational biology.The CBIB hosts a group of six young faculty members focused on basic science and its applications. Current areas of research include nanotechnology, microbial genomics, metagenomics, extremophile biology, biotechnology, protein dynamics and simulation, and protein engineering and metabolism. The CBIB has strong bonds with national and international collaborations including UCDavis Chile, US Air Force, and universities throughout Europe and the USA.

There is one open tenure-track faculty position at the assistant professor academic level, aimed at complementing our current expertise. We seek applicants concentrating in the areas of genomics and systems biology, particularly with expertise in metabolomics and proteomics (molecular biology experience is a plus). Successful applicants will join the CBIB team and are expected to perform research and teaching duties. Applicants must have a PhD in Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, Computer Science, Mathematics, Genomics, or related discipline, with postdoctoral research experience, evidence of success in obtaining extramural funding, and a solid publication track record.
