Faculty Position in Experimental Biophysics

The Department of Physics at Emory University invites applications for a junior tenure- track faculty position in experimental biophysics, with the appointment starting in September 2018. We welcome applications from outstanding candidates in all areas of experimental biophysics. Applicants whose research complements the existing strengths in our Department, including the study of biological systems ranging from the molecular to the cellular scale, and new experimental techniques that bridge these scales, such as in vivo optical imaging and/or spectroscopy are particularly encouraged to apply.

Applicants must have a Ph.D. in physics, biophysics, or a closely related field, postdoctoral experience, and a proven track record of research. The successful candidate is expected to establish an independent, internationally recognized, and externally funded research program, and demonstrate excellence in teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. She or he will benefit from a vibrant multi-interdisciplinary research environment that encompasses the College, School of Medicine and School of Public Health at Emory University, Georgia Tech, and the Center for Disease Control (CDC), with research strengths including genetics, genomics/bioinformatics, bioengineering, nanotechnology, synthetic and analytical chemistry.

To apply, submit a curriculum vitae, a research plan, a teaching statement, and a brief statement about your experience and vision regarding the teaching and mentorship of students of diverse backgrounds to http://apply.interfolio.com/43482, and arrange for at least three letters of reference to be uploaded to the same site. Reviews of applications will begin Monday, November 27, 2017 and will continue until the position is filled.
