The Boston College Biology Department seeks outstanding candidates for full-time tenure-track faculty positions in the area of Bioinformatics and/or Computational Biology at the rank of Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor depending on qualifications.

Boston College provides competitive start-up funds and research space with the expectation that the successful candidate will establish, or bring to the university, a vigorous, externally funded research program. The research interest of the candidates should be in one of the following areas: population genetics, molecular evolution/phylogenetics, systems biology, or bioinformatics approaches (e.g. tool and/or algorithm development for DNA/RNA next generation sequence analyses). The successful candidate will join a vibrant Biology Department, comprised of both computational and experimental groups, that is expanding programs in the area of applying computational approaches to microbial systems biology, viral evolution, host-pathogen interactions, and RNA/protein structural analysis. Special consideration will be given to candidates whose research programs complement the existing focus areas of the department (see for profiles of the Biology Department’s current research programs), that have a collaborative track-record, and/or who combine their work with wet-lab experimentation.

 Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, a statement of research and teaching plans, and arrange for three letters of references. All application materials should be submitted via Interfolio at . Review of applications will begin on October 15, 2014, and continue until the position is filled.
