The Department of Biology invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant or Associate Professor in Developmental or Regenerative Biology with membership in the Allen Discovery Center at Tufts. We seek a creative scholar with primary expertise in large-scale pattern regulation in embryogenesis or regeneration. We expect this individual to use state-of-the-art technology and quantitative approaches toward an integrative, multi-scale understanding and control of anatomical patterning. Ideal candidates will address molecular and computational controls of large-scale morphology, synthesizing data and models across genetics, physiology, and anatomy. Integrating across levels of organization, from molecules to organs, is essential. Aquatic model species are especially welcome, as are approaches that involve biophysical forces, high-performance imaging, optogenetics, in vivo electrophysiology, and computational analysis and modeling beyond the cell level.
The successful candidate is expected to develop an active externally-funded research program, and contribute to graduate and undergraduate courses. A doctoral degree and a record of research productivity are required.
Applicants should use the link https://apply.interfolio.com/36975 to submit a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, and separate statements of (1) research interests and plans and (2) teaching experience and philosophy. Submission of one to three selected reprints in PDF format is encouraged. Applicants should also ensure that three confidential letters of reference are submitted to this link.
Review of applications begins November 1, 2016, and continues until the position is filled.
