Open Rank Faculty Position, Center for Proteomics and Bioinformatics - Department of Nutrition

The Center for Proteomics and Bioinformatics in the Department of Nutrition at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine invites applications for a 12 month tenured or tenure track faculty position at the Assistant/Associate/Full Professor level with expertise in genomics, proteomics, structural biology or nutritional biochemistry. The successful candidate will establish and maintain a vigorous, innovative, collaborative and extramurally-funded research program. We encourage applications from candidates who integrate emerging and traditional research techniques to answer difficult questions pertaining to human health and disease. We are particularly interested in candidates who are at the forefront of developing new ‘-omic’ tools to address translational questions on topics including, but not limited to, the combination of cancer metabolism and metabolomics, the gut microbiome, or the intersection between genetics and nutrition, as well as computational and modeling approaches to derive meaning from ‘big data’ experiments. In addition to establishing a research program, the candidate will be expected to contribute to the education efforts of the department providing teaching mentoring, and service.

In addition to dedicated laboratory space, access to exceptional core facilities, and a generous start-up package, we offer a highly interactive environment with exceptional intellectual, infrastructural and administrative support. The candidate will be an active participant in the research expansion of the Center for Proteomics and Bioinformatics and the Department of Nutrition. The successful candidate will receive a primary appointment in the Department of Nutrition and a secondary appointment in the Center for Proteomics and Bioinformatics and can pursue secondary appointments in the collaborating departments, dependent on the candidate’s research focus. Candidates should have an MD or PhD or equivalent degree in addition to relevant post-doctoral experience. Candidates at the Assistant Professor level should demonstrate promise for research and teaching excellence; Associate Professor candidates should have established a significant professional reputation; candidates for Professor should be internationally recognized for leadership and scholarship in their discipline. Rank will be determined based on overall candidate qualifications with a competitive salary commensurate with experience.

The successful candidate will have the access to doctoral students through the Biomedical Scientist and Medical Scientist Training Programs. In addition, the Department of Nutrition houses the Systems Biology and Bioinformatics program, which trains both MS and PhD students to combine experimental and computational/mathematical disciplines to understand complex biological systems as well as the MS and PhD in Nutrition programs, and would provide well-trained graduate students who can further your research program.
