Tenure Track Assistant Professor
The Department of Developmental Biology at Washington University School of Medicine is undergoing a major expansion and invites applications at the level of assistant professor on the tenure track. We are seeking outstanding colleagues with an interest in any area of developmental biology, including the genetic and epigenetic mechanisms of mammalian embryogenesis, cell fate specification and reprogramming, tissue engineering and quantitative approaches to developmental biology. Faculty in the Department of Developmental Biology employ a broad range of cell culture systems and model organisms including human embryonic stem cells, C. elegans, D. melanogaster, zebrafish and mouse. For detailed information, please visit our website at http://devbio.wustl.edu/.
Review of applications will start October 1, 2016. Interested applicants are required to submit their a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and summary of their research accomplishments and plans through the online application website found at https://facultyopportunities.wustl.edu/Posting/Detail/1010040.
Applicants should also be prepared to provide the names and email contact information for three referees to provide letters of recommendation during the application process.
Washington University seeks an exceptionally qualified and diverse faculty; women, minorities, protected veterans and candidates with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply.
Biomedical Informatics Assistant
The Department of Developmental Biology at Washington University School of Medicine invites applications for a bioinformatician. The Department of Developmental Biology is a dynamic research community, with interests spanning multiple model organisms and disease paradigms.
We are seeking an outstanding applicant to join at the level of Biomedical Informatics Assistant to provide bioinformatics expertise and develop data analysis pipelines. The applicant is expected to have a B.A./B.S. or M.S. in a relevant area, including, but not limited to, computer science, statistics, and biology. Knowledge of developmental biology and/or regenerative medicine would be a plus. The successful candidate will report to the head of the Bioinformatics Research Core (http://brc.wustl.edu/) and assist on fundamental next generation sequencing analysis (ChIP-seq, RNA-seq, genome/exome sequencing), utilizing state of the art bioinformatics tools. Additional duties include the development of pipelines and novel analysis software. Proficiency with statistics and common scripting languages and analysis tools (e.g., Perl, R, and/or Python) is expected. In addition, the candidate should have excellent writing, communication and interpersonal skills. This is an excellent opportunity to gain additional experience with biomedical data analysis, interact with multiple research paradigms, and author scientific publications.
Review of applications will start September 1, 2015. Interested applicants should email a single PDF file consisting of a cover letter and curriculum vitae, and should arrange for submission of three letters of reference to:
