The Computational Biology Department within the School of Computer Science (SCS) at Carnegie Mellon University, is seeking to hire a full-time Assistant Teaching Professor starting in the 2020-2021 academic year. Primary initial responsibilities will consist of teaching course 02-261 (Quantitative Cell and Molecular Biology laboratory) in the Fall and Spring semesters and co-teaching course 02-760 (Laboratory Methods for Computational Biologists) in both semesters. Required qualifications include a Ph.D. in a Life Science or Computational field, and at least 5 years of experience with designing and carrying out laboratory experiments in cell and molecular biology. Desired qualifications include experience with statistical and/or computational analysis of experimental data and at least two years of teaching experience.
We particularly encourage applications from candidates who have a demonstrated track record in mentoring and nurturing female and under-represented minority students.
The teaching track is a career-oriented, renewable appointment with an initial appointment of three years. Typically initial appointments are at the rank of Assistant Teaching Professor, with the possibility of promotion to the ranks of Associate Teaching Professor and Teaching Professor. Teaching track positions are not tenured, but do provide substantial opportunities for professional growth and long-term contributions to education at Carnegie Mellon University.
Applications will be accepted as they are received through March 1, 2020. Applications should be submitted through the School of Computer Science Interfolio site, https://apply.interfolio.com/72351.
