Still getting back into things after being out sick ... here is an Ad for a job everyone should want ...
The UC Davis Genome Center integrates experimental and computational approaches to address key problems at the forefront of genomics. The Center is housed in a new research building with state-of-the-art computational and laboratory facilities and currently comprises 14 experimental and computational faculty. These faculty are developing an internationally recognized program in genomics and computational biology at Davis, building on and enhancing the unique strengths and unmatched breadth of the life sciences on the UC Davis campus.
The Genome Center invites applications for tenure-track faculty positions in all areas of genomics with emphasis on next-generation proteomics and statistical genomics involving animal, plant or microbial systems. Applicants interested in genomic approaches to human diseases and investigators employing large-scale, technology-driven approaches that complement existing strengths at UC Davis are particularly encouraged to apply. Candidates should be strongly motivated by the biological importance of their research and should value the opportunity to work in close collaboration with other groups and disciplines.
Candidates may be at any academic level. At the senior level, we invite applications from prominent scientists with distinguished records of research, teaching, and leadership in genomics. At the junior level, we invite applications from candidates whose accomplishments in innovative research and commitments to teaching demonstrate their potential to develop into the future leaders in these fields.
These positions require a Ph.D. or equivalent. Appointments will be at the Assistant, Associate or Full Professor level in an appropriate academic department in any of six schools, or colleges. The position will remain open until filled. For fullest consideration, applicants should submit a letter of application, a curriculum vitae, statements of research and teaching interests, and the names of at least five references to the Genome Center Web site www.genomecenter.ucdavis.edu by January 15, 2009.
