As one of the leading land-grant institutions in the nation, North Carolina State University is proud to announce its Chancellor’s Faculty Excellence Program, a cluster hire program that marks the first major initiative of the university’s 2011-2020 strategic plan, “The Pathway to the Future.” Starting in 2012, NC State will hire thirty-eight faculty in twelve research clusters to promote interdisciplinary scholarship and the development of innovative curriculum in emerging areas of strategic strength.The research cluster in “Integrated Synthetic And Systems Biology” invites applications from collaboratively-minded faculty in quantitative and life sciences to join our strong community at NCSU (ncsu.edu/workthatmatters). The candidates for all Faculty Excellence positions must have outstanding publication and external funding records. Successful candidates are expected to participate in collaborative, multi-investigator research and training initiatives that includes NC State biologists, systems engineers, bioinformaticians, statisticians, chemists and physicists to strengthen our high impact program in integrated systems and synthetic biology.
We are seeking an appointee with a programmatic focus on research and teaching in synthetic biology at the Associate or Full Professor rank, commensurate with credentials, qualifications, and experience. The candidate’s research should involve the identification and integration of synthetic tools, components, pathways or circuits to engineer cells and organisms with novel controls and traits. Integration of biological components with other materials to build artificial bioengineered platforms is also of high interest.
Plant Systems Biology
We are seeking an appointee with a strong research and teaching program in systems biology at the Associate or Full Professor rank, commensurate with credentials, qualifications, and experience. The candidate’s research should focus on integrating computational and experimental approaches to quantitatively describe interactions across molecular, cellular, and physiological processes and their impact on the development and adaptation of phototrophic organisms. This research should interface between systems engineering and quantitative life sciences, culminating in the development of large-scale predictive models.
